Euro-Egyptian Cultural Program Visual Arts Residency (Egypt)

The EU-funded project Euro-Egyptian Cultural Program (EECP) is launching a call for artists to join an art residency programme in Egypt working with Egyptian independent cultural actors. The residency will take place from April to May 2024.

The purpose of the residency is to offer the artists the opportunity to spend time in a new atmosphere and environment, support cultural and artistic exchange, nurture experimentation and new ideas, and support research and the development of new work. An additional aim is to implement artistic activities or programmes that lead to Egyptian audiences, new production/creation, new markets and new visibility.

Applying artists should have at least 2 years of experience in the field of Visual Arts and be from one of the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, United Kingdom. This call for projects is for the development of initial concepts and ‘works in progress’; applications with completed/previously-showcased pieces will not be accepted.

EUNIC and the local partner will support up to three artists for a four-week stay, including airfares, accommodation, per diem and transportation.

Deadline: 31 January 2024
