Special Information
The residency in Tehran is designed to be very open. Each stay is oriented around and shaped by the individual needs of the year’s resident. In the past, Musicboard residents have, for example, played concerts, collected material for future productions, and worked together with local musicians. The Musicboard resident should be prepared to demonstrate a good deal of initiative in designing their stay and creating personal contacts.
Note: depending on your nationality, there may be a time limit on the maximum length of stay in Iran as determined by the Iranian authorities. Applicants are advised to inform themselves in advance about the entry requirements.
