Atelier Mondial is an international scholarship programme that offers artists in the fields of visual arts, literature, fashion & textiles as well as dance & performing arts the opportunity to spend several months working in one of ten partner countries. Once a year, these 14 scholarships are announced for application in the Tri-Regio, plus a travel scholarship for a free project. The studio scholarships consist of a contribution to the cost of living as well as free use of a studio with a flat or a studio on site.

We would like to thank the partner institutions worldwide for their inspiring cooperation and the sponsorship for their support.
