Culture Moves Europe – call for residency hosts

Posted on Posted in News - Releases, Calls

What is the residency action and who can apply?

The Culture Moves Europe residency action provides financial support to organisations and artists registered as legal entities, in one of the 40 Creative Europe countries.

The purpose of the grant is to welcome international artists and cultural professionals at your premises to implement a residency project. The participating artists and cultural professionals must be legal residents in a Creative Europe country that is different from the host’s country.

  • architecture
  • cultural heritage
  • design and fashion design
  • literary translation
  • music
  • performing arts
  • visual arts

With this grant, Creative Europe supports your efforts of giving an international profile to your activities either if you are an established organisation or just one that has been recently founded.

What the residency action is for?

You can apply for funding for a residency project with a proposal that includes its objectives, expected impact and duration. You will act as a mentor to artists and cultural professionals: you should provide the environment, support and equipment adapted to their field of expertise, so that they can focus on their individual or collective projects.

The residency project should pursue one or two of the following objectives:

To explore

To conduct research, to investigate and work on a specific theme or a new concept.

To create

To engage in a collective creative process seeking to produce a new piece of artistic/cultural work.

To learn

To enhance the participants’ competences through non-formal learning or collaboration with a specialist.

To connect

To develop a network, to strengthen the participants’ professional development.

To transform

To enable societal change in line with the New European Bauhaus values and principles.

You can welcome between 1 and 5 international artists and cultural professionals who must all participate in the residency project on the same dates and for the same duration. The residency can last between 22 and 300 days.

When applying, you must choose one of the following durations:

  • short-term residency project: between 22 and 60 days
  • medium-term residency project: between 61 and 120 days
  • long-term residency project: between 121 and 300 days
