Heidelberg UNESCO City of Literature 3 Month Artist/Writer’s Residency


Residents of Dublin and other UNESCO Cities of Literature are invited to apply for a Writer/Artist Residency in Dilsberg, provided by Heidelberg UNESCO of Literature.
Candidates have the possibility to apply as team of two artists (grant holder and co-fellow) as 2 sleeping rooms are available (individual application is necessary).
The co-recipient should also have his/her own artistic expertise, which has not necessarily to be in the literary field (could be translation for instance, but also such as music, visual arts, performing arts, film, etc.).
Both artistic personalities have to demonstrate an artistic or interdisciplinary cooperation and should be personally well acquainted to each other. While the grant holder has to, it is not essential that the co-grantee is coming from a UNESCO City of Literature.
The co-grantee will be provided with the same financial resources as the grant holder.
The artists in residence share a kitchenette and a bathroom in the fully furnished apartment.
The apartment is unfortunately not accessible for disabled persons.
