DIVA – Artist in Residence Program in Denmark 2009 (Lá Fora… 16)

To promote creative exchange between Danish and foreign artists and art
institutions, The Danish Arts Council has established an artist-in-residence
program in Denmark. The program makes it possible to invite artists from abroad
to stay and work in Denmark for extended periods.


Each artist receives a grant of 10.000 DKK per month to cover expenses.

Who May Apply and What is the Procedure

1. Individuals as well as institutions, galleries or other members of the
Danish art world may propose artists from abroad for the program.

2. Before a proposal is made, the artist must be contacted to ensure that he or
she is interested in and able to accept a residency in Denmark of the proposed
duration. Residency outside Copenhagen furthermore requires securing
accommodations and studio facilities for the artist in advance.

– descriptions of plans you may have for collaborations with the artist
