Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic there have been serious consequences for the funding and support of artists and cultural workers worldwide. To counter this, the Miller-Zillmer Foundation invites you to apply for a three-month artist grant for audio and visual projects with media/digital access. The place of work is—in accordance with social isolation practices—your own studio.
The call for a grant has been set up in response to the unexpected crisis. The current exceptional situation brings artists and cultural workers not only to existential limits, but also to create new working spaces on a digital/media basis, in order to constructively counteract not only social isolation but also to contribute to global solidarity.
The Miller-Zillmer Foundation is looking for three to four audio-visual artists, preferably living in different countries, who would like to work together on an artistic project across borders and make it accessible online on a regular basis. The topics should be in the field of audio visual art and social relevance. Funding includes a monthly grant of €1000 per participant for the maximum duration of three months and an online platform for publication.
Applicants must be shown to be acutely affected in their professional activity as artists by the current measures to control the Covid-19 virus. This working stipend supports artists who currently have no income or financial support from other sources. For this reason, applicants who already receive (or will receive) grants will not be considered.
Deadline: Apr. 22, 2020
