Scholarships at Villa Decius for Polish and German playwrights and scriptwriters

The Association and the Foundation for Polish-German Cooperation in cooperation with the Literary Colloquium Berlin invite Polish and German playwrights and scriptwriters to apply for one-month residential scholarships in Kraków in October or November 2022.

The deadline for submitting the applications expires on July 3rd.

The scholarship is addressed to film, television, video and board games scriptwriters, as well as theatre and radio playwrights from Poland and Germany, who can present at least one film, TV production, theatre/radio play or game that was realised based on their script.

The organizers provide accommodation in the Łaski House, an outbuilding belonging to the renaissance Villa Decius palace and park complex (single room with bathroom, shared kitchen and free access to the internet), monthly grant of 3000 PLN gross (ca. 700 EUR), support in planning and organizing the residency and participation in networking meetings with cultural and creative industries in Krakow. We also hope that while staying at Villa Decius – which hosts six residential programmes at the moment – the residents will embark on the opportunity to make valuable international acquaintances and to explore the possibilities of artistic collaboration.

Writers interested in applying should submit the online application form and attach an example of their work in Polish, German or English that has been staged, filmed, aired or issued. A letter of motivation or recommendations are optional. The applications are accepted till July 3rd.

The list of chosen residents will be announced until July 31st, 2022. The project offers four monthly scholarships for two Polish and two German artists. The residential stays are planned for October and November 2022.
