The Landis & Gyr Foundation announces its annual studio, travel and work grants for Swiss artists and cultural workers or those of other nationalities who are officially resident in Switzerland.
The studio grants for 2023/24 in Budapest, Bucharest, London and Sofia will be awarded in the fields of film (direction, screenplay), literature, composition, cultural criticism, theatre (direction, dramaturgy, screenplay) and visual arts.
Residencies in Zug for Swiss authors and translators are now being advertised. The Foundation awards one to three-month studio scholarships exclusively in the field of literature.
The 2022 work grants are aimed at artists of all disciplines and exclusively at individuals or duos who have a specific project in progress or in prospect, which provides for working residencies at freely chosen locations. In response to the ongoing pandemic and the needs of cultural practitioners, the Foundation is doubling the total amount for work grants with immediate effect, making it possible to award 10 new grants of CHF 30,000 each. The prerequisite for both the studio and the work grants is an outstanding track record. The travel grants to the Balkans/Turkey region in 2023 focus on a project-oriented exploration of a socially relevant theme.
The detailed text of the call for applications, including how to apply and the online registration form, can be found at www.lg-stiftung.ch.
