Deadline of the Visegrad Artist Residency Program-Performing Arts offered by International Visegrad Fund (IVF) each falls on 1 October (noon, 12 o’clock).
The program is prepared in collaboration with Stanica Zilina-Zariecie (Truc Spherique) and aims at sup­port­ing inno­va­tion, exper­i­ment and cre­ativ­ity in the per­form­ing arts—new drama, con­tem­po­rary dance, new cir­cus, phys­i­cal the­atre, visual the­ater, alter­na­tive the­ater, per­for­mance art. The pro­gram is not suit­able for stone the­aters, already devel­oped per­for­mances, or the­ater fes­ti­vals.

Residencies are intended as 3-month projects in the calendar year with a min­i­mum 2-week stay at given host institution.

The finan­cial sup­port is given to both the artists and the host insti­tu­tions in the fol­low­ing format:

  • €4,000 for indi­vid­ual res­i­dency (1–2 artists): €1,500 for the host institution/€2,500 for the artist(s);
  • €8,000 for group res­i­dency (3 and more artists from the same country): €2,500 for the host institution/€5,500 for the artis­tic group.

Appli­cations are accepted from both indi­vid­ual artists (cit­i­zens of V4 coun­tries who are at least 18 years old) and artis­tic groups (both formal and informal, however, mem­bers of a group shall be from the same country V4 country). Each appli­cant may be granted sup­port only once in each V4 mem­ber state other than his/her cit­i­zen­ship and res­i­dence (applicant must have closed all previous projects supported by the Fund).

Video-documentation of applicant’s previous work must be submitted along with the application.
