On top of the Studio Program Fellowships this year CASTRO offers permanent opportunities.
These Fellowships are not subject to specific timings and therefore have no deadline. However they are subject to availability. The selection for this opportunity will be conducted exclusively by the CASTRO Team.
2.5 THE CASTRO FELLOWSHIP
This fellowship is an opportunity for artists based in Rome who need a studio to work in.
This fellowship does NOT involve the activities of the CASTRO Studio Program and is only meant as an offer of a work space. This fellowship provides a studio at CASTRO. A fixed monthly fee of €250 is required for the studio, equivalent to 50% of the cost of the studio. The fee will be fully reinvested in the CASTRO Program. The aim of this fellowship is to foster the local community, encouraging the artist to work in the studio and to be in daily dialogue with other artists and with the CASTRO Program at large.
The selection for this opportunity will be conducted exclusively by the CASTRO Team. A minimum stay of 2 months is required. (Starting from September 2022). This fellowship is NOT subject to the deadline of the open call, therefore applications may be received at any time during the year.
N.B No fee is required to apply for this fellowship
2.6 THE RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP
This fellowship is meant for researchers based in Rome or intending to travel for research in Rome. This fellowship does NOT involve the activities of the CASTRO Studio Program and is intended exclusively as an offer of a work space.
However, proposals for activities involving CASTRO fellows are welcome. The Team is also available to organize studio visits with Rome-based artists.
CASTRO offers free desk space for a period of 1 to 4 months at CASTRO. (Starting from September 2022). This is an opportunity for researchers who are working on a project related to, or in connection with, the city of Rome or with CASTRO and need a space to develop it. This fellowship does not have a regular interval and is subject to submitted proposals. The selection for this opportunity will be conducted exclusively by the CASTRO Team and reserves the right not to award the opportunity in the event that the projects submitted are not suitable.
