The call for applications for the 2011 UNESCO-Aschberg Bursaries  is now now open. Residencies in different arts disciplines available in countries around the world for artists aged 25-35.

The UNESCO-Aschberg Bursaries for Artists promote the mobility of young artists in order to enrich their personal perspectives, to enable them to engage in an intercultural dialogue and expose them to cultural diversity.

The Programme offers residencies to young artists (between 25 and 35 years old) worldwide. It shares many objectives of the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions (2005), which advocates cultural exchanges and highlights creativity and the need for artists to enrich their experience through contact with other cultures.

These residencies are catalysts for the development of artistic expression in all cultures of the world.

You can review the available bursaries either by region or artistic discipline.

NOTE: Each residency has a different DEADLINE! and different geographical eligibility criteria!

Deadlines run approximately mid-October - mid-November 2010 but CHECK all details.
