Grafikwerkstatt: call for a residency in Dresden!

Also this year, Culture Zone Wrocław, Wrocław City Hall, and Dresden City Hall invite you to submit applications for the Dresden artistic residence for workshop graphic designers. The selected resident will have the opportunity to work in one of the largest graphic design studios in Europe Grafikwerstatt and meet the artists associated with this place.

Poster of the call

The residency exchange for graphic designers specializing in artistic printing has been organized for five years. Thanks to it, Maja Dokudowicz, Natalia Tarnawa, Katarzyna Roman and Dominika Ziober-Król could already work in Germany. According to residency terms, the selected artist will receive accommodation, work space and allowances, including travel costs and purchase of materials.
