Nes Artist Residency is not a funding organization and does not offer grants or funding to artists.
Occasionally we will have an arts festival or program that has received funding to operate from other sources, in this case we send an open call for artists through our newsletter or on our homepage. If you would like to learn of opportunities at Nes please sign up to our newsletter. As a general rule, Nes does not issue funding for artists to use as grants to attend the residency. You should consult your local arts council or philanthropic organisations.
We will be posting international grant opportunities as we find out about them. If you know of any to share, please let us know!
