ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE STYRIA-ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE-Scholarship (St.A.i.R.) OF THE REGIONAL GOVERNMENT OF STYRIA 2022
For foreign artists and art theorists in Graz
Deadline: August 10, 2021.
On behalf of the Regional Minister of Culture Mr. Christopher Drexler the Regional Government of Styria allocates scholarships for young artists (maximum 40 years old) for the year 2022. These scholarships will be for international artists of all fields as well as for art theorists. There is no individual legal claim to be allocated a scholarship position.
Entitled to participate are artists and art theorists who look for contacts with artists and the creative scene in Graz, Styria. They will receive a monthly payment of EUR 1.000,– for subsistence. The scholarship requires the presence of the artists/theorists.
A room with a private bath plus a shared kitchen is available at the outstanding baroque Priesterseminar in the very city center. However, it is not possible to be accompanied by other people (family members, friends…) or pets. An appropriate level of courtesy, respect, and communicativeness is therefore expected of the scholars.
The care and networking of the scholars take place through cultural initiatives in Graz, which also arrange a working space for the scholars. A presentation of selected works or an artist- talk is scheduled. The period of the scholarship depends on the extent of the artistic intention and the decision of the jury. The minimum stay is two months. The scholars have to pay for their travel costs and their material expenses. Furthermore, they have to bear the costs of all necessary insurances (health, liability, and accident insurance) as well as for travel formalities. At the start of the scholarship, scholars must submit their policies for medical insurance, accident insurance, and liability insurance valid for the duration of their stay abroad; otherwise, scholars will not be accepted into the residency program.
