Away

about calls & programmes

AWAY – a project around residencies has an open format. Accordingly, it also has much to report on what is going on beyond its own boundaries — under current calls, for example, on the numerous residency activities of the Austrian provinces or private promotion activities that are in part comparable with, but sometimes completely different from the residency programme of the Federal Chancellery. AWAY has developed a service tool for artists so that they can keep a good overview of this wealth of opportunities and find out which place and programme is the right one for their own way of working or their personal situation.

On principle, the programmes listed are addressing Austrian artists or artists working in Austria that are active in the disciplines of visual art, photography, performance, digital art, theory / curating, art criticism or art education. The selection primarily includes grants offered by public institutions in the Austrian provinces and, additionally, a few private initiatives based on positive experiences reported by artists.

In addition to these focus disciplines, there is also a selection of programmes for the following practices: architecture, literature, music / composition, design, film, fashion and the performing arts. AWAY and its service tools continue to grow and are therefore not exhaustive.

current calls

When we talk about the foreign residency programme of the Federal Chancellery in the context of current working conditions for artists and the Austrian art promotion scene, we also have to mention comparable activities in the provinces. Apart from programmes of provincial agencies, artists are supported by several other exchange and residency initiatives throughout Austria. Some of them are well known and have been active for years, others have just been launched.

A basic distinction is made between incoming and outgoing programmes – the former invite national and international artists to studios located in Austria, whereas the latter offer residency destinations abroad for artists working in Austria.

With hyperlinks to the awarding organizations, artists can get information on the most recent calls of incoming and outgoing residency programmes and forthcoming submission deadlines here.

incoming residence programmes

Who invites whom to use their studios here in Austria and under what conditions? Awarding organizations, artistic focal areas, age limits, destinations — browse the promotion parameters and find out which studio matches your day-to-day working practices.

Under awarding institution, there is a list of institutions offering incoming residency programmes. Origin / place of habitation: Some programmes address artists who permanently live or work in the province of the relevant awarding organization, were born there or have an extraordinary relationship to it that has to be stated in the application. The detailed requirements have to be studied on the websites of the awarding organizations. In addition, there are also programmes that do not specify any location-specific selection criteria. Some programmes provide funding in addition to a studio — these can be found using the filter subsidized. There are special programmes for students, i.e. artists who have not completed their studies yet. Family-friendly programmes offer the possibility to take along children or partners to the residency destination.
