#TakeAStand Residency Grants for Artists

Under its residency grant programme, the Fonds Darstellende Künste, working with the Alliance of International Production Houses and other networks, is offering remote research residencies to performing artists and others working in performing arts theatres, festivals and culture who have fled, or are fleeing Ukraine.

The non-transferable €5,000 grant is awarded for a period of two or four consecutive months.

If the funding is awarded, the project must be carried out during two or four consecutive months, ending by 31 December 2022, and conclude with the submission of a full expenditure report.

The programme supports open-ended projects such as research, working labs and concept development are funded, along with any activities aimed at cementing an artist’s work or enabling it to progress. The projects carried out with the #TakeAStand residency grant must take place in Germany. Most of the residencies are remote, i.e. the artists work from home. Our support for the residencies gives them the chance to network with other artists on the programme or from the context of our centre’s work.

If you are a performing artist and you are fleeing or have fled from Ukraine, and can prove you are resident in Germany and meet certain requirements, you can apply for the support.

Applications can be submitted at any time in consultation with HELLERAU. The HELLERAU project management team will check the applications are filled in correctly. To ensure a fluent application process it is requested to contact the project management until 31 August 2022.
