The Cultural Foundation Schloss Wiepersdorf is an organization dedicated to fostering art, culture and science through an interdisciplinary and international residency program.
It awards residency fellowships to individual artists and scholars as well as to groups from the cultural and academic arena. It organizes public programs with fellows and guest experts at its premises as well as in collaboration with partner institutions.
Composers (incl. sound design, sound installation, sound performance, conducting) can apply from February 15, 2022, to April 15, 2022, for a three-months residency at Schloss Wiepersdorf in 2023.
Applicants must have completed an artistic or academic course of study, be working on a doctorate, or have distinguished themselves through publications or long-standing professional artistic or academic work, and can provide samples of their work to substantiate this.
German or English proficiency is required of all applicants. Basic German language skills would be helpful for a successful residence.
Decisive for the awarding of a fellowship are the quality of the applicant’s previous artistic or academic work and the proposed project.
Not eligible for a fellowship are: students – with the exception of doctoral, post-doctoral, and master-class students –, people who have already received a Schloss Wiepersdorf fellowship in the last two years prior to the application year and members of the jury
The number of fellowships awarded is dependent on the funds available in the budget of the federal state of Brandenburg.
The residency fellowship lasts for three months and is granted for the periods March to May, June to August, and September to November.
In addition to room and board at Schloss Wiepersdorf, all fellows also receive a monthly cash stipend of €1200 and a one-time grant of €480 to cover material expenses. (If the stay is shortened, the material cost grant is reduced by €160 per month.)
Visa costs will be covered for fellows from countries requiring a visa for Germany.
Fellowships will be awarded in consultation with an independent jury of experts.
Artists and writers can apply for either an individual fellowship or a collaborative fellowship.
