Call For Applications: Pact Zollverein Residencies 2017, Deadline: 5th December, 2016

folio-baresiRunning all year round since 2002, the residency programme is at the heart of PACT Zollverein’s day to day work.

A residency can incorporate the following:

– Studio space [from 63 to 173 sq.m.]

– Local accommodation [maximum 6 people]

– Weekly grant allowance for all of the residency project participants [maximum group of 6 people]

– Travel costs covering one journey only per participant to and from PACT Zollverein [subject to prior agreement]

– Technical equipment [by arrangement and subject to availability]

– Stage rehearsals with professional technical supervision and support [by arrangement and subject to availability]
