Organisational Units

The cities Mainz, Speyer and Worms are offering up to three project fellowships for the  realization  of  an  artistic  project  that  addres-ses  the  history  of  the  ShUM  communities  and  their religious, cultural and architectural legacy.

A  public  presentation  of  the  completed  projects (exhibition, concert, reading, performance, etc.) is intended.

Required  is  an  artistic  approach  to  the  ShUM  le-gacy,  taking  into  consideration  Judaism’s  ideas, history and current position.

During  their  stay,  the  artistic  ShUM  fellows  will  also  be  expected  to  allow  interested  visitors  an  insight into their work and concepts in a suitable form, e.g., in workshop discussions. Young people and schools will also be invited, and an exchange of ideas with local artists and cultural institutions is also desirable.

Events  linked  to  the  fellowship  are  organized  in  collaboration with the curator and artistic director of the residency program.Communication is in English or German.
