Residency for BIPoC artists at Studio Naxos

The independent theater studioNAXOS is granting residencies for artistic projects within the framework of the funding program of Neustart Kultur: #TakeHeart. This call is primarily aimed at artists who understand themselves as BIPOC. Artists whose work critically engages with white positions and privileges may also apply, but these applications can only be taken into consideration upon awarding residencies to BIPOC artists.

The funding is not bound to any thematic specification and will be awarded in the amount of €5,000 for a period of two consecutive months. In addition to a description of their artistic project and a biography, all applicants must provide proof of membership in the Künstlersozialkasse (Artists' Social Welfare Fund).

The deadline for applications is Thursday, December 01, 2022.

The focus of this call is on non-white perspectives and aims to encourage critical discourse and exchange, particularly on the subject of BIPOC visibility in the cultural sector and especially on BIPOC under-representation in the theater industry. studioNAXOS thereby aims to contribute to the representation of social and artistic diversity, to question current structures and to support the creation of new ones by increasing diversification.

Funded by the Fonds Darstellende Künste with funds from the BKM, the Beauftragten der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien, within the framework of Neustart Kultur: #TakeHeart. Made possible by the Bündnis internationaler Produktionshäuser, the Netzwerk Freier Theater and the flausen+bundesnetzwerk.
