  • Travel and work stays for German cultural workers or cultural workers who have lived in Germany for at least five years to or in transition and developing countries (performances, artist-in-residence programs, workshops, preparatory and research trips, international events such as symposia, conferences and lectures).
  • Cultural workers who come from a transition or developing country can also apply for grants for exhibitions in Germany.
