Atelier Josepha / ARS BALTICA: Residencies for Artist From the Baltic Sea Region (Germany)

Black and white shot of a smooth, bare field by the sea, couple of trees there, but not much - edge of the earth feeling.

Atelier Josepha in Ahrenshoop, Germany brings together nature and art under the central theme ‘Baltic Sea’. It promotes critical reflection on the historical and current circumstances of the Baltic Sea region. The residency stands in a tradition of cultural cooperation and exchange within this area. It is also inspired by the need to reflect on our mutual environment and shared seas – both as forces of nature and in their increasing vulnerability.

The current open call is for a residency that will take place over a period of three weeks between September and December 2023. The residency requires the artist’s full-time presence at Atelier Josepha.

The call is addressed to solo artists of all disciplines. Eligible artists (no age limit) must be residents of a state that borders the Baltic Sea. Residents of other European countries are welcome if they have a proven connection to the Baltic Sea region.


  • Use of Atelier Josepha and lodging in Villa Josepha (board not included). Visitors are not encouraged and require written approval.
  • Stipend of EUR 1500 (EUR 500 per week of stay).
  • Travel expenses to and from Ahrenshoop (by train where possible, flights where necessary).
  • Artist materials up to EUR 250 (proof of expenditure required).
