Open Call: Agosto Foundation Artist-In-Residence Programme (Czech Republic, short deadline)


Open Call for Artists and Researchers

Agosto Foundation Artist-In-Residence Programme

Prague, Czech Republic


Deadline: August 15, 2018 for residencies taking place between January 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019 

Conditions: Artists and researchers receive a private apartment in the center of Prague for a period of up to 3 months, a grant of approximately €750 (per month, in Czech currency) to support the proposed project, travel expenses (limited) and assistance in its implementation.

Eligibility: The Foundation encourages and welcomes the participation of artists, curators and researchers from various backgrounds to apply for the support of projects which are in line with the mission of the Agosto Foundation and the declared objectives of the residency.

Through the Agosto Residency Program, the Foundation seeks to create a context, not restricted solely to artists, for those active in the cultural realm to step outside of their usual frames of reference and to reach across disciplines. The aim is to facilitate, support and maintain a general platform for engaged, creative, adisciplinary (not oriented toward any one discipline) and exploratory projects. A special focus will be on artists and specialists whose work has crossed (or implies the crossing of) the boundaries of their fields (visual art, new media, sound art, experimental music, literature, etc.) Other interdisciplinary collaborations or cooperations are welcome to apply, as well.

How to Apply:
The completed application, written in English, will include:

  • A project proposal from the artist (250 words maximum).               
  • Artist contact information and CV.
  • Documentation of previous projects.
  • A motivation letter explaining the context and framework of the proposed project and specification of any operational or financial requests. It should also indicate the preferred time of the residency and its expected outcome (500 words maximum).
