Programs

Artists on the coast!

Our association initiates cultural projects for the region in collaboration with international artists and the partners of our networks. All project ideas develop in dialogue with those connected to our local, regional, national and international network, young and old, professionals and amateurs.
Our most important activity is the artist residency program. It constitutes the “raw material” on which all other projects are being developed. It is divided into three programmatic strands:

  • Residencies for artists and cultural operators from all disciplines. The cultural association “Mecklenburg Inspires” invites artists during the off season to stay and work inspired by the region. The art work will then be exhibited or presented in front of an audience. In the planning of each residency season, the project manager plans with each invited artist a parallel activity, depending on the artists interests and skills. The aim of the parallel activity is to produce an output or impact that will remain with the region or its people after the artist has left. We particularly welcome theme- or site-specific proposals of the artists himself when applying for a residency.
  • “Mecklenburg Inspires” publishes calls for thematic projects, that interested artists can apply for.
  • We give bursaries to artists that have excelled for their work. This mostly happens in partnership with other cultural organisations, such as the George-Tabori-Price of the German Foundation for the Performing Arts.
