Deadline: on going
Artists and curators can apply for residencies at ISCP. There are two ways of applying, a partner application or a direct application.
Residencies are between three and twelve months and are sponsored by governments, corporations, foundations, institutions, organizations, galleries and private patrons. Each artist or curator is provided with 24-hour access to their studio and wireless internet. In addition, all residents can use ISCP’s common areas. ISCP does not provide or arrange living accommodation, however, a number of partner sponsors, who send participants to ISCP each year, have a furnished apartment for residents. In addition, sponsors often give a stipend for accommodation, living expenses, travel and materials.
ISCP collaborates with over forty partner governments, institutions and organizations to fund residency opportunities. Partner sponsors publicly call for applications for residencies at ISCP. Check our webside for a list of partner sponsors.
If you wish to apply directly to ISCP, please read the information below carefully:
Please email the application form and supporting materials to the e-mail address below. ISCP does not locate sponsors for direct applicants. Once accepted, artists and curators are responsible for securing funding. Please have a look at our previous sponsors for potential funding sources. When planning your residency, please bear in mind that residencies are scheduled approximately one year in advance. We are currently scheduling 2012.
