Call for the Artists-in-Residence-Programme
Vienna, Austria, 2015
In cooperation with KulturKontakt Austria, the Austrian Federal Chancellery makes available residencies in Vienna for the year 2015. The residency is designed to offer an opportunity to get familiar with the Austrian art scene and cultural environment, and to establish contact with Austrian creative artists. Residents are expected to complete a project during their stay. Activities on offer include visits to galleries, studios and museums, contacts to the literature and publishing sector, as well as access to Vienna's music life. Whenever possible, the residents will receive free tickets for art and book fairs, performances at the Tanzquartier, the international ImPuls Tanz dance festival and other events.
