Deutsch | English

Dear Reader,

We would like to inform you in this special newsletter about the changes in the application procedure for Villa Kamogawa. Due to the immense number of applications in the past rounds - in one round we recieved over 500 applications while we could offer only 9 scholarships - a new concept has been developed for the residence in Kyoto.
We would like to continue to draw your attention to our worldwide programmes, the open calls for applications for which we will inform you as usual on our homepage as well as via this newsletter.

With best regards from Munich,

Your Residence Team

Changes in Application Procedure


Villa Kamogawa

In order to promote and accompany networking between cultural workers and intercultural exchange more intensively, Villa Kamogawa is expanding its residency programme together with partner institutions in East Asia and Europe. In addition to scholarships for cultural workers from Germany, regional and international participation will also be possible from 2024.
At the same time, the previous selection procedure for artists to apply themselves will be changed to a nomination procedure. An international jury will decide on the awarding of the scholarships from the nominations made by external experts.
There will be no further Open Calls for the Villa Kamogawa.

In other countries, the Goethe-Institut continues to offer Open Call procedures for various residency programmes. An overview of all Goethe-Institut residency programmes worldwide and the current calls for applications can be found on our website.
