Application is now open for The Wapping Project‘s third residency at its home in Berlin. The Wapping Project has always championed creativity and nourished talent across various fields, and especially with The Wapping Project Berlin’s residency programme, the “freewheeling, surprising and unbridled but yet has a strong, directional undercurrent” found in the vision of the late director Jules Wright continues to run throughout.

The Wapping Project closed its doors at the Wapping Hydraulic Power Station in December 2013, and opened the first of its international homes in Berlin, as part of its international Residency Programme. Starting in 2015, the programme’s first two residencies were awarded by an interdisciplinary panel of judges to the Swedish artist Dana Sederowsky and to the English painter and photographer Zara Matthews.

The successful applicant will reside for eight weeks in a turn of the century Berliner apartment in Kreuzberg. In 2016, The Wapping Project Berlin will host three 8-week residencies between June and December. Applicants must be at least 33 years old to be eligible and practise within the following disciplines:

Fine Art, Film, Photography, Choreography, Composition, Literature, Architecture, Design (Furniture) and Curation 

The sole condition is that the resident must make NO work during the residency, using it for rest, recreation and reflection – a serious creative pause. The successful candidate may be accompanied by a partner and up to two children.

Applications must be made through the company’s website.
