Funding programmes for musicians and artists
DAAD / Bergmann
Public and private cultural funding programmes in Germany support talented musicians and artists, allowing them to concentrate fully on their artistic and creative projects.
Some institutions in Germany provide funding to give talented musicians and artists space to further develop their creative skills. In these artist-in-residence programmes, funded artists and musicians spend a period living at a location made available to them in order to develop their artistic potential while being as free as possible from material concerns. More academically oriented programmes to help musicians and artists fund their studies at higher education institutions can be found in the DAAD Scholarship Database.
The DAAD's Artists-in-Berlin Program is one of the world's most respected artist-in-residence programmes for established artists working in the fine arts, film, literature and music.
