Visegrad Artist Residency Program (VARP)

Visegrad Artist Residency Program (VARP)Deadline: 10 September 2011
Open to: The Visegrad Artist Residency Program was cre­ated in 2006 for the pur­poses of facil­i­tat­ing art mobil­ity and exchange for cit­i­zens of the Visegrad Group (V4) coun­tries (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia). The artist-in-residence projects must be imple­mented in a V4 coun­try other than that of the applicant’s res­i­dence. The sup­ported period of each res­i­dency is 3 months.
 
To apply for the res­i­dency, each appli­cant has to find a host orga­ni­za­tion, which will accept his/her res­i­dency project, and fill out the on-line appli­ca­tion form.
 
Compulsory annexes to the appli­ca­tion are as follows:
  1. Copy of an ID (e.g. passport)
  2. Documentation of one’s pre­vi­ous art work (to be uploaded in the on-line appli­ca­tion form)
  3. Original let­ter of accep­tance from the host orga­ni­za­tion (copies, faxes or scans will no be accepted). The let­ter must be on a let­ter­head paper and must include the following:
    • name of the artist
    • title of the project
    • planned dates of the project
    • date and sig­na­ture of the statu­tory representative
  4. Copies of reg­is­tra­tion doc­u­ments of the host orga­ni­za­tion. The doc­u­ments must con­tain the following:
    • the name of the statu­tory representative
    • the reg­is­tered seat of the organization
    • iden­ti­fi­ca­tion num­ber of the orga­ni­za­tion (e.g. tax ID number)
All com­pul­sory annexes (except for the reg­is­tra­tion doc­u­ments and/or a copy of ID) must be in English. All doc­u­ments must be deliv­ered to the Fund along with the appli­ca­tion form in a sin­gle pack­age; doc­u­ments sent sep­a­rately can­not be accepted.
Printed out and signed appli­ca­tion form and other required mate­ri­als need to be post­marked with the dead­line date (or deliv­ered per­son­ally to the Fund on the dead­line date between 8.30–16.30). Documents sent after this date can­not be accepted.
Every appli­cant for the res­i­dency will be eval­u­ated by a selec­tion com­mit­tee con­sist­ing of four inde­pen­dent experts cov­er­ing dif­fer­ent fields of art. The artists will be selected on the basis of pro­por­tion­al­ity among the Visegrad Group countries.
Selected artists will receive a res­i­dency fee (schol­ar­ship) of €750 per month and the cor­re­spond­ing host orga­ni­za­tion will receive €750 per month to cover expenses related to the res­i­dency (each res­i­dency project receives €4,500 in total).
Deadline for 2012 res­i­den­cies will be on 10 September 2011. The results will be announced by the end of November 2011.
