The Palace is a non-profit events company and creative network that focuses on experimentation, collaboration, exchange, and the support of developing artists across Europe and the world. The yearly Palace Residency is a 7-day creative retreat held in July at a 700-year-old palace in Southern Poland. This year, the residency will allow 200 artists from any discipline to collaborate and experiment in developing new and existing work.
Both new and emerging artists are invited to apply, with a proactive workshop and support programme in place to encourage creative development and expression. The schedule includes daily workshops and collaborative project time, individual and group development sessions, and feedback sessions, as well as opportunities for artists to showcase their work through exhibitions, performances, and talks.
The residency is open to artists and creatives from any discipline. A submission fee of €10 must be paid when submitting the application and a panel of 6 will review all incoming applications, taking into consideration compatibility, diversity and overall impact and contribution to the wider collective. Applications can be made in English, Polish, or German. All applicants will be notified by April 3rd on the success of their application.
The Palace Residency will be held from Sunday 15th to Monday 23rd July 2018. Applications are now being accepted and the closing deadline is Monday 19th March at midnight. More information about the residency can be found here and the applications can be lodged here with links to English, German and Polish online forms and downloads.
