Project "Mut und Anmut" by Cony Theis and Petra Straß © Anne Frechen / Deutsche Stiftung Denkmalschutz

The Cultural Foundation Schloss Wiepersdorf organizes an interdisciplinary and international fellowship program at Schloss Wiepersdorf for individuals and groups.

The call for proposals and awarding of the fellowships for individuals in the fields of literature/science, visual arts and composition are carried out by the Cultural Foundation Schloss Wiepersdorf. Information can be found under Individual and Collaborative Fellowships.

Information on applying for group fellowships with adult participants of up to 14 people can be found under Group Scholarships.

 

Overall information

Schloss Wiepersdorf is located in a rural area about 80 kilometers south of Berlin, Germany in a village of ca. 150 inhabitants.

A residency fellowship at Schloss Wiepersdorf is possible between March and November (in 2020 between June and November).

Fellows receive support for implementing planned projects and related research, networking with local partners and institutions, and for presentations such as lectures, workshops, concerts, readings and exhibitions.

A total of 12 living spaces and study spaces are available for individual artists and 14 rooms for group fellowship participants. An atelier, various rooms with keyboard instruments and conference rooms offer ample working space.

Fellows are offered three meals a day. Meals are served in the dining rooms of the castle. Other rooms and the gardens are open to all for general use.

Visits by guests or family members must be agreed upon in advance with the administration. Meals for guests and family members are subject to a fee.

A residency with children may be granted only in exceptional cases and requires the prior provision of child care. The Cultural Foundation Schloss Wiepersdorf is looking into the possibility of offering support for organizing childcare so that single parents may be eligible for a residency with a child.

On weekends, the museum and a café in the Orangery are open to the public.

 

Requirements

If works are created during the fellowship, the support of the Cultural Foundation Schloss Wiepersdorf must be mentioned in the publication.

A willingness to participate in events is expressly desired.

Upon completion of the fellowship term, fellows should promptly prepare a written report and an evaluation of the fellowship.
