The UNESCO-Aschberg Bursaries for Artists Programme is announcing the 2011
call for applications. This call is open to visual artists, creative writers
and musicians between the ages of 25 and 35.


The Programme aims to promote the mobility of young artists through art
residences abroad, give priority to artists and artist residency
institutions from the global south and promoting the participation of women
in international artist residencies.


The website provides links to the residency institutions with full
instructions on application procedures. Candidates are invited to submit
their applications directly to the institution of their choice. The
institutions pre-select three candidates for each bursary and submit the
list of names to UNESCO for review by an international selection panel,
which makes the final selection taking into consideration the priorities of
the residency, geographical distribution and gender equality.


By supporting the mobility of artists and promoting artist residencies, the
UNESCO-Aschberg Programme contributes to:


- Individual artistic development: opportunities for artists to realise
their creative works and have access to other markets;

- Local development: transfer of knowledge back in local communities;

- International cooperation: Promote collaboration and cooperation between
artists and artists' residencies.
