Artquest - 3 Months in Berlin

This is an opportunity for a London-based visual arts/crafts practitioner at any stage of their career to live and make new work in one of Europe's most dynamic cities. Artquest / ACAVA will provide a free live/work studio for 3 months, return air fare, a £600 bursary and £100 towards artists materials.

The emphasis in this residency is on research, and there is no requirement to produce a body of work as a result of this residency. Instead, the selected artists sole obligation will be to write a short diary each month about their experiences. This could include updates on work produced, galleries visited, or a general overview of life in Berlin and could incorporate images of work produced where appropriate. The artists journal and images will be used on Artquest's websites to provide information to other artists looking to live or work in Berlin.

About the studio - the selected artist will be based in a building shared with 40 local artists who are members of the Milchof Studio. The selected artist's studio comprises a studio space (398 sqft), basic living space with cooking facilities and a mezzanine platform sleeping area. The live/work space is situated in Prenzlauerberg, at the heart of the Berlin art scene - a detailed map of the area the studio is in is available.

Requirements - as with other Artquest opportunities, this residency is only available to artists living and working in London. Artists can work in any medium and be at any stage of their careers - from recent graduates to established artists with decades of experience. Artists must be eligible to live /work in the EU, and are responsible for their own insurance and healthcare.

How to apply - this is a unique opportunity, and Artquest anticipate a large response. If you wish to apply, please ensure that your application is eligible and includes all requested information. Application forms - including details of the types of supporting material we can accept - can be downloaded here (see right).

Deadline: Friday 13 July 2007
