  • a working grant for one artist for three months
  • working period: March 1st to May 31st
  • the working grant amounts to €7,000 per three-month residency
  • in addition to the working grant, the grantee also receives a grant to cover travel costs, the amount of which depends on the selected means of travel. A higher travel grant is awarded to grantees travelling by rail or sea instead of flying. Further information on travel grant

Combining theoretical and artistic practice, IFP aims to nurture cross-disciplinary knowledge and stimulate cultural exchange and production in a collective approach. The residency focuses on visual arts but also artists from other disciplines having a well-grounded research interest may apply.

The rooms are quite basic and family members may not accompany the resident artist. The residency can accommodate three artists at a time. Two studios and a small working space are available for residential artists.

IFP provides a part-time assistant for the grantee to help solve problems concerning everyday situations or the artist's work.

The grantee is responsible for obtaining the visa, insurance and for other similar arrangements.
