Fellowship for Curators and Artists at Salzburg Summer Academy

general information /

ERSTE Foundation offers five fellowships for young artists and five fellowships for emerging curators from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia to take part in a course of their choice at the International Summer Academy of Fine Arts in Salzburg.

“Salzburg was a great experience for me and for everyone participating in Maria Lind’s class (“The Histories and Practices of Curating”). Her knowledge and the presentations connected to the Summer Academy’s programme gave us a good background for curatorial studies, and the chance to get to know the artistic work of important contemporary artists. Equally important was the opportunity to meet young artists and see the process of their work, to hear about their classes and tasks, and also to experience the diversity of our class-members who were from very different backgrounds.” (Krisztina Hunya, Hungarian Art History student and fellow at Summer Academy Salzburg in 2011)

The fellows are selected by a jury formed by ERSTE Foundation together with its project partners,,, and

The Fellowships for Curators and Artists at Salzburg Summer Academy cover accommodation & board, travel expenses and the participation fee for the course. The Fellowships are worth between EUR 1.000 and 1.500 each, depending on the different length of courses for artists or curators.
