Fellowship 2021


The Arts Foundation of North Rhine-Westphalia and the Pina Bausch Foundation have been following up on Pina Bausch’s credo since 2016 with a co-developed grant programme and award the Pina Bausch Fellowship for Dance and Choreography.

Interested applicants can apply with a virtual cooperation. Applications based on physical encounters cannot be considered this year, as it is not possible to anticipate the development of the different international restrictions.

Requirements :

– Letter of motivation (max. 1000 characters incl. blanks in English)
– A brief statement on the planned fellowship (max. 500 characters incl. blanks in English)

– 1 video (length max. 5 min)

Benefits :

The duration of the 2021 virtual fellowship depends on the self-developed format. Unlike in previous years, in 2021, five fellowships are going to be funded with a lump sum of €5000 each. Due to the exclusive digital format, no travel will be supported.

_ A basic knowledge of English is required
