Synopsis:
The National Arts Council (NAC) is calling for residency applications for the international studio programme at Künstlerhaus Bethanien Berlin (KB) which begins in June 2013. Under the partnership framework between NAC and KB, this 12-month residency programme, renowned as one of the premier residency programmes in Europe, aims to offer professional visual artists the opportunity to develop their practices, incubate new ideas for the advancement of contemporary art and encounter creative challenges within the context of KB and the international networking opportunities it presents. Successful applicants can receive funding of up to S$50,000 which can go towards living expenses for their residency period, studio and material costs and a presentation of the final project at the end of the residency. The project/s will also be publicly presented in one of the KB exhibition studios.

Expectations
The selected artist(s) is expected to manage his/her time well at KB, take charge of the work/project based on the residency application, and participate in the studio visits, excursions, forums, and other activities organised by KB for its artists-in-residence. At the end of the residency, the artist(s) is expected to participate in a group exhibition to showcase his/her work. Artists are to be responsible for their own health and safety during the residency period.

Funding
The total funding amount will not exceed $50,000 for each artist. Each artist is expected to maintain the funds responsibly and to contribute additional funds if necessary for the completion of the residency programme. Upon selection, the funding amount will be disbursed in 4 instalments over the residency period of 12 months. A post-residency report including financial statements would have to be submitted to NAC within 2 months of the end of the residency.

Timing
The 12-month residency commences on 1st June 2013 and ends on 31st May 2014.
