Facing the Fish

New Generation Program of Artus

Call for Proposals

for emerging artists and performers

Artus considers its duty to support and hold up young, professional artists and groups at the sprout of their artistic careers who are full of talent and creativity, but lack the contacts and background, or critical reference needed for applying at professional theatres or art galleries, because of which their opportunities to create are limited. 

All the participants of the program are given a chance to present their work to art experts and public, with assuring high quality technical conditions for work at Artus Studio. Preceding the premiere, the studio will provide space for rehearsals, stage light and sound technique, as well as professional advice.

The coverage of eligible applicants is open to the creators coming from the fields of dance, theatre, visual art, music, new media, or any other genre or field, including initiatives overlapping conventional genre borders.

How to apply:

  • In writing, via email to (Subject: Facing the Fish application)
  • bio and covering letter 
  • summary of the artistic concept of the production to be created

The creators and authors of the selected applications will be called for a further interview. Following, the decision will be made regarding the project support, about which we will inform each participant in writing.
The grant application is continuous, open throughout the year.
