THE VISEGARD Artist Residencies are designed for artistic projects organised in a Visegrad Four country other than that of the artist's residence. The residency will last three months. To apply, each artist must find a host organisation for their project. Before applying, please make sure all requested columns in the application form are filled in and not sent as an attachment. Also send a copy of ID or passport, documentation of previous artistic works (if available online, please indicate so in the application), a residency project accepted by a host organisation, and a copy of the host organisation's founding documents. Every applicant will be evaluated by a committee comprising four independent experts from diverse artistic fields.
The selection will be proportional among the Visegrad countries. Selected artists will receive a residency scholarship of €750 per month and the host organisation will receive Ř750 per month to cover expenses. The deadline for the 2009 residencies is September 10, 2008. The VARP online application is available from September 2008 at www.visegradfund.org/residence.html.
