Due to Covid 19, foreign artists supposed to stay in 2021 may be transferred to 2022. If so, very few, if any, new foreign artists will be selected for 2022. The applications received from foreigners will, if this is the case, be evaluated for a stay in 2023 without needing to reapply next year.
We regret this circumstances, but hope for understanding in a still uncertain and difficult time.

NOTE 2: Foreign artists who applied for a stay in 2021 will be considered for a stay in 2022, no new application required.
