Panicale is a small medieval hilltop town in Umbria which overlooks the picturesque Lake Trasimeno. The residency is organised through Margherita Belaief, an art lover, curator, and Panicale native living between Berlin and Umbria. Each year she hosts a Musicboard resident in her apartment in Panicale, and in doing so helps to promote exchange between the Italian and German music scenes.
Panicale is ideal for musicians who are seeking a quiet refuge in which to write, compose, reflect, and work on their music. The residency is a special opportunity for immersion into small-town Italian culture and into the surrounding nature. Public transportation is very limited. A studio and technical equipment are not provided. Each year, Margherita Belaief organises at least one local concert as an opportunity for the resident to showcase their new work.
Musicboard covers all of the costs associated with the stay. This includes round-trip travel costs as well as food, accommodation, working/rehearsal space, and project-related costs when applicable.
The annual application deadline for the Scholarship & Residencies program is March 1, 2020. All application-related information and the link to the online form can be found here.
