Open Call | KulturKontakt Artist-in-Residence-Programme 2018, Austria


Application deadline: 30 September.

In co-operation with KulturKontakt Austria, the Austrian Federal Chancellery makes available 50 residencies in Austria (Vienna and Salzburg) for the year 2019.

The residency is designed to offer an opportunity to familiarise oneself with the Austrian art scene and cultural environment and to make contact with Austrian artists. Residents are expected to complete a project during their stay.

Whenever possible, the residents will receive free tickets for art and book fairs, the international ImPuls Tanz dance festival and other events.

Please note: the age limit for applicants is 40 years, i.e. the applicants’ date of birth has to be after December 31, 1978.
