AiR for EU artists in Luxembourg

The European Investment Bank (EIB) Institute is looking for emerging European artists and collectives to join the 2019 edition of its Artists Development Programme (ADP), a 6 weeks long residency programme in Luxembourg, under the mentorship of acclaimed Finnish photographer Jorma Puranen. The EIB launched two calls for applications targeting visual artists (aged less than 35) with nationality of one of the 28 EU Member States with a thematic focus on: Urban Rejuvenation and Disruption: - The Imprint of Man.

The EIB Institute will cover the artist’s travel costs to and from Luxembourg (for the residency), and to and from Jorma Puranen’s studio (before the start of the residency). The artist will receive a EUR 100 (one hundred euro) flat-rate daily allowance intended to cover their subsistence costs during the period of residency and all or part of their production costs, and will be provided with a living/working space. In addition to the above, the artist will be granted, at the beginning of the residency, a contribution towards production of EUR 500 (five hundred euro) and, at the end of the residency, a success fee of EUR 1 000 (one thousand euro), provided that he/she has produced a work or body of works. The residency in Luxembourg will take place between the end of May and the beginning of July 2019. Upon completion of the residency, the EIB might consider acquiring an artwork produced on-site from the artist.
