Cultural foundation Schloss Wiepersdorf is calling for artists, writers and scholars from Germany and abroad to apply for an individual or collaborative fellowship in Schloss Wiepersdorf in Brandenburg for the year 2024. Applicants must have completed an artistic or academic course of study, be working on a doctorate or have distinguished themselves through publications or professional artistic or academic work, and can provide samples of their work. Applicants should be working in one of the following areas: literature, science, fine arts and composition. German or English proficiency is required; basic German language skills might be helpful for a successful residency.
The international and interdisciplinary residency fellowship programme lasts three months, and is granted for the periods March to May, June to August and September to November. Applicants in the science category are allowed to stay for a shorter period. In addition to room and board at Schloss Wiepersdorf, all fellows will receive a monthly cash stipend of €1200 and a one-time grant of €480 to cover material expenses. Visa costs will be covered for fellows from countries requiring a visa for Germany.
Artists and writers can apply for either an individual fellowship or a collaborative fellowship. A collaborative fellowship includes two rooms, one for the fellow and an additional room for the other participant(s) in the project. These can come from any artistic field—including arts and crafts. Applications can be sent via online form from February 15th to April 15th. Fellowships will be awarded in consultation with an independent jury of experts.
