Abbaye de Neumünster

Abbaye de Neumünster

Centre Culturel de Rencontre Neumünster - CCRN


The CCRN as a centre for cultural exchange and meetings organizes activities that are based on the idea of "a dialogue of cultures, culture of dialogue".

For some years, the European Investment Bank offers a residency programme called Artist Development Program (ADP) hosted by the Abbaye. 

The ADP provides an opportunity for the two emerging visual artists to develop their practice during a four–six-week residency in Luxembourg. During this time, they will each be mentored by a leading peer, internationally acclaimed artist. The ADP aims to promote two individual emerging artists by associating them with an established artist from the creative field. The main practical objective of the programme is to help bring about the production of two independent innovative artistic projects.

The residency is open to all individuals wishing to develop their practice in a professional context by creating a new (body of) work(s). Applicants should be under 35 years of age at the time of application. Applicants must have the nationality of one of the EU countries. In order to facilitate communications with the mentor and local artistic environment in Luxembourg, participants should be fluent in English.

Budget and duration
The EIB Institute will take over the two artists' travel costs to and from Luxembourg. The artists in residence will also receive a stipend (EUR 100 per day each). At the end of the residency, the participants will receive a success fee of EUR 1,500 each, provided they have produced an artwork.

Before or during the residency in Luxembourg, the beneficiaries will spend a few days visiting the mentor and experiencing the latter's creative studio(s) in London. The duration of the residency in Luxembourg will be four–six weeks, in June/July 2015. The artists participating in the ADP will be provided a living/working space located in Centre Culturel de Rencontre Abbaye de Neumünster, situated in the culturally rich Grund district of Luxembourg City.

Upon completion of the residency, the EIB might consider acquiring the artwork(s), which was/were produced on site, from the artists.
