International Institute of Puppetry - research residencies

Frist: Mittwoch, 01. Juni 2016

The Research center at the International Institute of Puppetry is offering two programs for research residencies (one with the other without grant) to encourage scholarly research about puppetry, to support and mentor artistic creation, and to strengthen the links between the research and artistic communities.

The research residencies at the International Institute of Puppetry are open to scholars, artists and postgraduate students from anywhere in the world. Call for application is launched for residencies between September 1st, 2016 to January 31st, 2017.

Residents can have access to the Library, mentoring support, contacts and networking possibilities with the partners of the IIM. Accommodation is provided free of charge at the Villa d'Aubilly. The residents must sign a research contract which includes the donation of a copy of their final project (e.g. thesis, book, documentary etc.) to the Library.

These residencies can last between 2 weeks and 2 months, with the exception of the periods when the IIM is closed (July, August, Christmas holidays, September of odd numbered years e.g. 2015, 2017...).

The grant covers daily expenses and part of the travelling costs. They are granted principally to PhD students, post-doctorate, authors at critical phase of their writing, and artists in a theoretical-practical investigation (laboratory) . Residents with grants may be asked to present their work to the students at the ESNAM.
