Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts Grants

Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts offers numerous grants for participation in one of the courses to be held from 22 July to 31 August 2013. Some 90 grants, usually covering tuition costs only, are available for participation in one of the courses at the Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts. Only grants by the American Austrian Foundation (AAF), ERSTE Foundation, Free State of Bavaria, and Münster Academy of Fine Arts offer additional subsidies for travel and living costs. Application deadline is 10 April 2013.

The 2013 programme is diverse and multifaceted, ranging from stone sculpture to media art, from "arte útil" (useful art) to jewellery design and on to curatorial practice. The focus is on exploration, defining and interpreting the terrain where art is produced, presented and communicated - as well as on the inevitable disillusionment that occasionally arises, and the subsequent re-enchantment. Students will be given assistance in discovering their own artistic cosmos and creating a scope for development. The 21 courses of between one and four weeks will be held in three locations: Hohensalzburg Fortress, the old salt factory (Alte Saline) in Hallein, and the Kiefer quarry in Fürstenbrunn.

The high quality of the courses is guaranteed by the requirement that all prospective participants must apply for acceptance. On the basis of the submitted dossier, the teachers select the participants. The fees are between EUR 430 and 1.120, depending on the duration of the course. Students are entitled to a reduced fee. The closing date for applications to the courses is 15 May 2013. If numbers allow it, later applications may be considered.
