Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts 2013 (Austria) - grants

A number of organisations provide grants for artists and curators interested in attending the Salzburg International Summer Academy of Fine Arts next summer (22 July - 31 August 2013).

About the Academy:

This year there will be 21 courses of between one and four weeks in three locations: Hohensalzburg Fortress, the old salt factory (Alte Saline) in Hallein and the Kiefer quarry in Fürstenbrunn. The teaching artists come from all over the world – from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Cuba, Egypt, Germany, Haiti, India, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Switzerland, the UK and Austria. The programme offers a wide variety ranging from stone sculpture to media art, from "Arte útil" (useful art) to jewellery design. 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 scope for development.

About the grants:

Some 90 grants, usually covering tuition costs only, are available for participation in one of the classes at the Summer Academy.

Additional subsidies for travel and living costs are offered by the American Austrian Foundation (AAF), ERSTE Foundation, Free State of Bavaria, and Münster Academy of Fine Arts. Applications for these grants should be made directly to the granting bodies, according to their guidelines and closing dates. The Eastern Europe grants awarded by the Summer Academy also include travel and living costs.

Applications for all other grants should be made, online only, via the Summer Academy.
The grant application also counts as the application for a class (so need not be made separately).

The closing date for all applications is 10 April 2013.
