Applying for a
residency / grant

It is possible to apply for a residency as a guest artist through our open calls for applications, or by being suggested for the program by one of our Munich cooperation partners. Unsolicited applications will only be considered in exceptional cases – for example, when other artists cancel on short notice.

Artists suggested for the program must reside outside of Bavaria; other rules can apply to open calls for applications. Guest artists who stay at one of the residences will receive a monthly grant of € 1,200. In addition, we will reimburse them for a monthly ticket for the local public transportation system.
