2012 UNESCO-Aschberg Bursaries for Artists

The UNESCO-Aschberg Bursaries Programme offers bursaries to artists for 2012 in the fields of creative writing, music and visual arts. Integrated into UNESCO's strategy in 1994 to promote cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue, the UNESCO-Aschberg Bursaries Programme aims to provide experience to young artists and to help them complete their training in countries other than their own. The Programme strategy is based in UNESCO's policies to promote creativity and cultural diversity, and so, converges with the goals of the Convention on the Promotion and Protection of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (the 2005 Convention). The Programme also gives priority to artists and institutions in developing countries, in order to enhance North-South and South-South cooperation.

Each residency has different conditions, deadlines and eligibility criteria. The following bursaries have submission deadlines in November 2011:

  • Creative Writing
    CAMAC (France) - deadline 4 November 2011; Sacatar Foundation (Brazil) - deadline 14 November 2011;
  • Music
