This is an opportunity to go on a residency in Germany to create work that reimagines the interaction between art and science.

Organises will provide a scholarship of EUR 3,000, accommodation in Darmstadt and a studio in the national park. The residency will last six weeks and will take place between May and November. You can also bring along your children.

The programme is managed by Kultur einer Digitalstadt, a platform for artistic research, interdisciplinary discussions and cultural networking in the Digitalstadt Darmstadt. This is one of thousands of EU opportunities for Ukraine.
