A collaboration between HBK Braunschweig and the Ministry of Science and Culture of Lower Saxony, the Braunschweig Projects residency programme combines the goal of promoting young artists with the development of internationalisation or the Lower Saxony region.
Braunschweig University of Art (HBK Braunschweig) is an artistic-scientific university with the right to award doctoral and post doctoral qualifications. With around 1000 students in the fields of liberal arts, art education, performing arts, design, visual communication, art history and media studies, the HBK Braunschweig is one of the largest art academies in Germany.
The HBK Braunschweig is calling for applications for scholarships for the state of Lower Saxony in two categories:
- Residency programme for fine art and sound art for the 2023/24 academic year.
- Residency programme for up to three Ukrainian artists (fine arts) for the 2023/24 academic year.
Funding is provided in the form of scholarships of 1250 euros per month over a period of 12 months. During this time, scholarship holders are required to reside at the HBK Braunschweig for at least 8 months during the lecture period in the summer and winter semesters. The funding period will begin on 1 April 2023. Scholarship holders can move into their accommodation from 17 April 2023.
There will also be an allowance for project and travel costs. After deduction of the travel costs of all scholarship holders, the remaining amount will be divided among the scholarship holders on the basis of a project calculation and in consultation with the chosen mentor. The realisation of the contributions for the final exhibition as a joint project will be in the foreground in the awarding.
A residential studio in Braunschweig, designed for one person, will be provided rent-free for the duration of the stay in Braunschweig for reimbursement of the incidental rental costs of approximately 90 euros per month.
A pre-requisite for a scholarship is a successfully completed art degree. The most recent studies must have been completed after 1 April 2013 and before 1 April 2020. Scholarship holders must be able to show proof of extensive artistic practice and exhibition participation.
