New York City

VARP in New York

Incepted in 2010 under the coop­er­a­tion with Futura Prague and the Triangle Arts Association in Brooklyn, the VARP in New York pro­gram facil­i­tates artist res­i­den­cies for visual artists from the Visegrad Group (V4) coun­tries in New York City. Applicants will be selected on the basis of their pre­vi­ous work, their poten­tial con­tri­bu­tion to the res­i­dency stay in New York, as well as the poten­tial ben­e­fit they can draw from the pro­gram. One artist per V4 coun­try will be selected.


Who can apply?

Visual artists who are cit­i­zens of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, or Slovakia.

Under what con­di­tions can one apply?

  1. Applicants must have a very good knowl­edge of English both spo­ken and written.
  2. When apply­ing the appli­cants must have fin­ished all other schol­ar­ship projects (schol­ar­ships or VARP projects) financed by the Fund; simul­ta­ne­ous appli­ca­tions within any cat­e­gory of the VARP (i.e., appli­ca­tions for res­i­den­cies tak­ing place in the same year) are not per­mit­ted. Those who have been already sup­ported within VARP in pre­vi­ous years and have their projects closed are eli­gi­ble for the support.
  3. Students can­not apply, i.e., appli­cants who are enrolled in Bachelor’s or Master’s pro­grams at any uni­ver­sity at the time of apply­ing can­not be considered.
  4. Preferred will be those appli­cants who have not yet received arts schol­ar­ship in New York.

What’s the length of the res­i­dency? When do the projects take place?

Where will the res­i­dency take place?

The stu­dio is at Triangle Arts Association in Brooklyn, NY. Triangle Arts Association is a New York City-based non-profit orga­ni­za­tion founded in 1982 to sup­port inter­na­tional and U.S. visual artists. Triangle offers stu­dio space and a dynamic artis­tic com­mu­nity to sup­port the devel­op­ment of projects with empha­sis on dia­logue and exper­i­men­ta­tion. Administrative, cura­to­r­ial, and peer sup­port is pro­vided for all artists-in-residence. Unlike many other res­i­dency pro­grams, Triangle does not empha­size spe­cific out­comes but rather allows artists space, con­text and com­mu­nity within which to focus on ideas, research and process. Learn more about Triangle at: www.triangle-arts-association.org.

How much is the support?

€4,000 per project—this sum shall cover the liv­ing and travel costs and other costs related to the residency.
