Running all year round since 2002, the residency programme is at the heart of PACT Zollvereins day to day work. Open to professional artists from home and abroad who work in the areas of dance, performance, media arts or music and closely linked to PACTs two other core strands of activity in presenting work and facilitating research and development, the programme is a key element in PACT Zollvereins profile as an Artists House supporting lively exchange between practice and theory. While occupying their own designated space and essentially working independently, residents may choose to take advantage of various kinds of production support such as dramaturgy, technical assistance, project management as well as press and publicity.
Thanks to the support of the Ministry for Families, Children, Youth, Culture and Sports of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, residency recipients receive a grant to cover their living expenses and travel costs. Residences are awarded twice a year by an international jury.
A residency project will not necessarily have a public showing.

Situated in the heart of the Ruhr District, the house boasts a nationwide unique working structure which consolidates three key areas of activity addressing regional, national and international social and cultural interests which all contribute to the standing and apprecia-tion of dance and performance as independent art forms.
