Up to eight residents are invited to join the Sommerakademie Paul Klee (SPK) programme (August 12, 2023–November 30, 2024) in Bern, Switzerland. Over the course of 2023 & 2024, the SPK features public lectures, closed-door seminars, and access to state-of-the-art infrastructure and technical support at the Bern Academy of the Arts (HKB)—but also teaching opportunities at the HKB.
The 2023/24 cycle of SPK wishes to bring together a group of residents who have experience in working with others in modes of crisis or struggle in cultural, activist or education contexts.
Travel, accommodation, visa expenses and a per diem of CHF 50 are covered. Residents using production facilities are entitled to a modest production stipend of CHF 500. Each year of the cycle also has a pot of money at their disposal that can be allocated collectively.
The SPK caters to practitioners working at a postgraduate level, whether or not they have an official certificate saying so. Practical experience of being part of artistic and activist groups and an openness to engage in a process of sharing and learning from each other are necessary requirements here. This call encourages practitioners from various disciplines in culture, education or activism to apply.
