Artist-in-Residence Partners of the Oberpfälzer Künstlerhaus II

Our Artist-in-Residence program functions as an exchange with partner houses in the worldwide Res Artis network. The Oberpfälzer Künstlerhaus and its partnering programs grant scholarships for artist-in-residence stays at each others' programs through internal competition or by invitation. Stays usually last four to six weeks and are supported by a stipend. Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate partners or families. Partner houses of the Cultural Center of the Upper Palatinate:
