The Goethe-Institut and BOZAR are organising an artistic research residency program between Iran and Europe, withing the framework of the cultural heritage management program in Iran (HerMap Iran) funded by the Directorate General for International Partnerships of the European Commission.

The project is a means to preserve and revalue tangible and intangible cultural heritage by creating new ways for its perception, reception and communication.

Underneath you can find the open calls for two residencies both aimed at artists from Europe and Iran.

A first residency invites candidates to present a project on the topic of classic Iranian poetry. It aims to connect these ancient forms of poetry with contemporary artistic expressions in the most beautiful and permanent manner and, by doing so, reaching a wider audience, especially among the younger generations.

The second residency is on the topic of Iranian music heritage. This project should focus in particular on proposing new approaches to enhance the value of the Iranian music heritage in its various components with the aim of preserving it, renewing musical practices and raising awareness to the widest possible audience.

The deadline for both open calls is April 15, 2021.
