Goethe-Institut > Virtual Partner Residencies
Travel is severely restricted for the time being due to the coronavirus pandemic. As a result, not only have nearly all live performances been cancelled, but so have most physical residencies for artists and co-productions. In reaction to the resulting changes in working conditions in the music scene, the Goethe-Institut has created this virtual residency programme with a view to maintaining and reinforcing international exchange and collaboration. Funding for virtual partner residencies is now available to arrange for international musical collaboration projects.
Virtual partner residencies may serve to work on joint research, compositions, concept and project development, pre-productions or innovative online projects, for example. Other, including interdisciplinary, music-centred formats may also be eligible for funding. The focus must be on artistic collaboration and extensive exchange on a partnership basis.
This virtual partner residency programme is for solo artists and small ensembles from Germany and abroad. Projects of or involving artists from developing or transition countries (see DAC list) are particularly welcome.
Your application may be submitted by artists/ensembles in Germany or abroad, provided that at least one artist or ensemble based in Germany is involved in the project. Projects should have a duration of 2-4 weeks. Selected projects will receive a grant of €1200 per ensemble/partner.
Deadline: 31 December 2020
