FAQ Residencies

— Who can apply?

Applications for a residency are open to international artists who work alone or preferably in collaborative practice (max. 4 people) in the fields of dance / choreography, performance, media art, video art / film, music / sound art, science, urban research, technology or architecture, or who pursue transdisciplinary approaches per se.

Our residencies and spaces are less suitable for artistic practices such as painting, sculpture or purely writing activities.

— Which projects are eligible to apply for a residency?

Projects in all development phases are welcome - from conception and initial research to more technical or production-related work phases. We welcome projects that deal with specific contexts (e.g. urban space, socially related issues) as well as those that want to work independently on a production in the studio.

— What financial support is offered? 

Besides a studio space, local accommodation and reimbursement of travel expenses for all artists involved in the project (max. 4 people), a weekly grant allowance of €400 per person will be paid.

— What needs to be considered in the application form?

We ask you to submit applications only in English. Unfortunately, it is not possible to save the form temporarily, but you can scroll all the way down using the arrows to enter all the fields and requested content.

 How does the selection process work?

All applications received are thoroughly reviewed and discussed by a selection committee made up of close PACT associates and the team of PACT. Their evaluation is focused on several key criteria including the project’s feasibility and need for a residency within our programme, but also on how the themes or projects resonate with the issues PACT is pursuing.

Following this, a shortlist of candidates is created and reviewed by an independent jury, who diligently assessed each application before reaching their final decisions.
