District Kunst und Kulturförderung is seeking applicants for its Studio Grant program for a period of 6 months starting on February 1, 2015.
Deadline for applications is Friday, October 17, 2014; 11:59pm
Founded in 2010 on the grounds of the historic Malzfabrik, District Kunst- und Kulturförderung offers an interdisciplinary think and work space for the collaborative intersection of art and other fields of knowledge. Their focus rests on artistic ideas that deal with urban space and its appropriation as well as a new understanding of the commons. Taking its de-centralized location as conceptual premise, District offers a platform for the articulation of perspectives which are currently at the margins of political and cultural representation.
District’s Studio Grant program concentrates explicitly on the promotion of contemporary women artists. Since 2010, they have awarded the studio grant to visual artists with the aim to open a room where long-term dialogues between artistic, curatorial, research and educational practices can evolve.
The next scholarship holder will be awarded the use of a 15 m² studio in District’s building for a period of 6 months from February 1, 2015 to July 31, 2015. There are no restrictions based on nationality or age. Travel or accommodation expenses are not covered.
The recipient of the scholarship will be determined by a jury. The composition of the jury will be announced only after the application deadline.
Application must include a CV, a work proposal for the 6 months, a portfolio of no more than 10 pages (max. 3 MB) and, if necessary, maximal two links to stream videos. Applications can be send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
