The Foundation “Stiftung Künstlerdorf Schöppingen“ awards around forty working scholarships a year in the fields of visual art, literature and experimental composition. Since the foundation of the artists’ village in 1989, a total of about 800 artists and authors have been supported. The scholarships are linked to a stay in the artists’ village of two to six months each. The programme organised by the Künstlerdorf offers the opportunity to gain regular insights into artistic processes and to engage in personal exchange with the scholarship holders. In addition to the ongoing events, the Künstlerdorf organises the annual CAP curator programme with the aim of developing contemporary strategies and structures for artistic productions and clarifying implementation issues.
