VARP—Visual&Sound Arts

Visegrad Artist Residency Program—Visual&Sound Arts facil­i­tates mobil­ity and exchange of cit­i­zens of the Visegrad Group (V4) coun­tries in the fields of visual and sound arts. The artist-in-residence projects must be imple­mented in a V4 coun­try other than that of the applicant’s res­i­dence. Supported period of each res­i­dency is 3 months.

To apply for res­i­dency, each appli­cant has to find a host orga­ni­za­tion, which will accept his/her res­i­dency project, and fill out the on-line appli­ca­tion form.

Each print­out of appli­ca­tion form must include the fol­low­ing enclosures:

  • Copy of the applicant’s ID (e.g. passport)
  • Documentation of the applicant’s pre­vi­ous work—port­fo­lio (upload­able in the on-line appli­ca­tion form)
  • Original let­ter of accep­tance from the host orga­ni­za­tion (copies, faxes or scans can­not be accepted); the let­ter must be on a let­ter­head paper and must include the fol­low­ing infor­ma­tion:
    • name of the artist
    • title of the project
    • planned dates of the project
    • date and sig­na­ture of the statu­tory representative

Copies of iden­ti­fi­ca­tion doc­u­ments of the host orga­ni­za­tion; such documents:

  • must include the name of the statu­tory representative
  • must include the reg­is­tered seat of the organization
  • must include ID num­ber of the orga­ni­za­tion (e.g. tax ID number)
  • can­not be older than 3 months

All com­pul­sory enclo­sures (except for the reg­is­tra­tion doc­u­ments and/or a copy of ID) must be in English. All doc­u­ments must be deliv­ered to the Fund along with the appli­ca­tion form in a sin­gle pack­age; doc­u­ments sent sep­a­rately can­not be accepted.

Printed out and signed appli­ca­tion form and other required mate­ri­als need to be post­marked with the dead­line date (or deliv­ered per­son­ally to the Fund on the dead­line date between 8.30–16.30). Documents sent after this date can­not be accepted.

Every appli­cant for the res­i­dency will be eval­u­ated by a selec­tion com­mit­tee con­sist­ing of four inde­pen­dent experts cov­er­ing dif­fer­ent fields of art. The artists will be selected on the basis of pro­por­tion­al­ity among the Visegrad Group countries.

Selected artists will receive a res­i­dency fee (schol­ar­ship) of €750 per month and the cor­re­spond­ing host orga­ni­za­tion will receive €750 per month to cover expenses related to the res­i­dency (each res­i­dency project receives €4,500 in total).

Applications for 2015 res­i­den­cies can be sub­mit­ted by 11:59:59 a.m. on September 10, 2015. The results will be announced by the end of November 2015.
