// Expenses

The artist must take responsibility to pay individually for the costs of the studio prices and insurance, transport and travel expenses. Normally the artist will look for a grant in his/her country to finance all the costs, although GlogauAIR will do everything possible to facilitate the search for financial aid, i.e. sending a non-binding letter of invitation that endorses the decision of the artist. As a starting point, here you can find a selection of funding programs.

GlogauAir is always looking for sponsoring partners to develop grants for artists and support the activities of the residents.


// Jury

A jury formed of professionals from the Berlin art community will choose the admitted artists and the decision will be communicated by e-mail only to the selected artists one month after the application deadline.

// Residency Duration

Residency duration of either 3 months or 6 months only. Please indicate the residency period and duration on your application.
