Applications for the following year can be submitted from July 15th to September 15th. The application portal is open during this period.
Professional artists, authors and composers can apply. There are no restrictions in regards to nationality or ages. Accommodation for family members can be provided by arrangement and availability.
The Künstlerdorf Schöppingen Foundation places particular emphasis on the progressive potential of the arts and the testing of new methods and structures. A commitment that can be assigned to such fields of action and breaks up familiar structures does not constitute an exclusion criterion for the application, but can be an advantage.
All grants amount to 1,500 euros per month, minus around 100 to 200 euros in rental and operating costs. Travel, insurance or material costs are not covered.
The period of a residency, with a duration between two to six months, can be selected according to availability and agreement. As an exception to this, the two grants in the field of composition are each awarded for a period of six months.
The grant requires that the grant holders reside and work at Künstlerdorf during the period of the residency. The workshops of the Künstlerdorf can be used during the residency. The grant does not come with any obligation to present work results. There is, however, the possibility of using exhibition opportunities after arrangement and availability. We encourage engagement in the form of lectures, readings, workshops, etc.
The application process for 2022 is currently open -> see „Apply“
