The online application form for the funding programme Scholarships & Residencies has just been activated.
Musicians from all genres of popular music who live and work in Berlin can apply for a scholarship or residency until March 15th, 2019.
This year, the Musicboard Berlin is awarding eleven residencies to Berlin pop musicians. The residencies in Los Angeles, Detroit, Salvador de Bahia, Marseille, Paris, India and Sri Lanka as well as Panicale, Havana and Tehran will be announced again.
We are also delighted that we are able to award two new residencies in Kampala, Uganda and Manila, Philippines in cooperation with the CTM Festival.
The cooperation with Deutsche Oper Berlin, initiated in 2018, will also be continued. In 2019, two domestic scholarships (“HINTERHALT Scholarship”) will again be offered for the composition and design of an evening in the series AUS DEM HINTERHALT.
Furthermore, the Musicboard Berlin is offering special coaching sessions this year. For the first time, Musicboard scholarship holders will have the opportunity to receive individual coaching with Jovanka von Wilsdorf in addition to their scholarship. Moreover, the residencies in Marseille and Paris will be extended by the possibility of a coaching with Le Studio des Variétés in Paris.
