Nes artist residency is not a grants or funding body.

We  have a relationship with the Manitoba Arts Council in Canada who will fund 2 places a year for performing artists to Nes  you can find out more information here.

We also have a long standing affiliation with Künstlerhaus Lukas in Ahrenshoop Germany, who will provide 2 funded placements per year at Nes,  more information on these scholarships can be found here.  We reciprocate by selecting 2 Nes Alumni artists per year for a residency at Künstlerhaus Lukas, an email call out for applications will go to all previous Nes artists.

We recommend checking with your own country’s government bodies, arts councils, or philanthropic funding organizations for project and travel grants.
