Change of Scene - Call for Applications
Change of Scene is a grant programme of the Robert Bosch Stiftung in cooperation with the German Centre of the International Theatre Institute (ITI). This call for applications is directed at civic and state theatres as well as independent companies from the German-speaking realm (Germany, Austria or Switzerland) who wish to develop a new artistic project with a partner from North Africa or Eastern Europe. Change of Scene is open to all sectors of the performing arts.
The organisers are looking for cooperation projects that address prevailing social themes and change and manifest them in a joint artistic response. Change of Scene helps to initiate and develop international artistic projects that are the result of direct collaboration between the cooperating partners. There should be one public presentation of the sponsored projects in both countries, or, at least, in the German-speaking partner country.
Artists will gain the time and space, for up to two years, to meet each other as well as have opportunity for intensive exchange. Existing contacts can be deepened further or built up afresh. The jury chooses about 10 cooperation projects, each to receive a subsidy of up to 15.000 Euros.
Applications can be submitted until 15 February 2017 online in German and English. Partners from North African or Eastern European countries should submit their application together with a partner from the German-speaking realm.
