Scholarships, awarded by the Verein für die Schwarze Kunst
In the 550th year of Johannes Gutenberg’s death, the Verein für die Schwarze Kunst (En: Association for the Black Arts) therefore initiated the Walz für Handsatz und Buchdruck, in the context of which it enables friends of artistic handicraft professions to go on several “walks” each year to currently up to 17 different workshops all over Germany. For 2021, the association will offer up to seven walks for two months each in changing workshops. Four of these are reserved as Walzstipendium 2021 (En: Walz-Scholarships) for scholarship holders under 30 years of age, which the association supports with 1.000 Euros each.
The application deadline for the Walzstipendium 2021 is October 1st. Apply here!
From October 17th to 31st, 2020, the works of the nine scholarship holders will be shown in an exhibition at the Papiermühle Homburg by Johannes Follmer. The theme of the exhibition is Impressive.
