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 13 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.

2020/2021: Atelier Mondial, like many other art programmes, was unexpectedly hit by the pandemic and many artists had to cancel or interrupt their residency this year. However, our many years of exchange with destinations all over the world have strengthened our conviction that art is an important basis for communication between cultures, regions and practices - a basis that can give us impulses for the quality of flexibility, experimentation and provisionality so much needed in these times. It is against this background that the scholarships for 2021 have been awarded again, subject to certain pandemic conditions. We would like to thank the partner institutions worldwide for their inspiring cooperation and the sponsorship for their support.
