Swiss Cultural Fund Albania > Call for Design and Implementation of an Art Residency Programme
In the context of empowering cross-border dialogue, and to enhance intercultural understanding through arts in the Western Balkans, Swiss Cultural Fund in Albania invites local and regional cultural organisations to submit proposals for the design and implementation of an Art Residency Programme that emphasises this aspect.
The mission of the fund is to bring together a group of talented artists from different backgrounds and countries of the region and offer them the space, time and context to produce artworks that explore and comprehend relationships and coexistence despite political discordance.
Applications are welcome from cultural organizations from Albania or the region, with proven experience in organising, managing or being partners in previous art residency programs.
The timeframe of the implementation is May-October 2020. The project must be fully implemented before 30 October 2020. It is expected that the site of the residency programme will be Albania, with regional participation from at least two other countries from the region. The eligible countries are Albania, North Macedonia, Kosovo, Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The maximum grant-request to SCFA is 3,000,000 LEK (~24,300 EUR).
Deadline: 1 April 2020
