General Information and application requirements
The Landis & Gyr Foundation awards Residencies to Swiss artists and writers for stays in London, Budapest, Bucharest, Sofia or Zug, especially in one of the following disciplines:
- Film (directing, screenwriting)
- Cultural criticism/curators
- Theatre (directing, dramaturgy, playwriting)
- Visual arts
Who may apply
Applications are accepted from Swiss artists and writers or non-Swiss artists and writers whose official residence has been in Switzerland for three or more years. Prerequisite for all applicants is an outstanding record of achievement in one of the disciplines named above. The Residencies are not designed to promote individuals at the start of their artistic careers. There is no age limit.
Past recipients of a Landis & Gyr grant must wait at least 10 years before submitting a new application. Persons who have unsuccessfully applied for a residency three times must wait 5 years before applying again.
What does the Landis & Gyr Foundation offer?
Recipients of a Residency may use the Foundation’s house in London or apartment in Zug, Budapest, Bucharest or Sofia free of charge. In addition, residents receive a monthly stipend to cover living costs and a one-time allowance for travel expenses (in the case of London, this is included in the cost-of-living stipend). The studios offer quiet space to live and work. They are not suitable for a stay with children. Applicants may apply to one location only; information on a suitable time period (including a second priority) should also be given.
The call for application is from December to mid-January and is announced in the Swiss media and relevant specialist journals.
