Sharing Future – Artist in residence scholarship 2022

The Artist in Residence grant „Sharing Future “of the International Elias Canetti Society, sponsored by the Danube Rectors’ Conference, is already in its fourth round this year. We received 29 applications from artists and artist duos, so the selection process proved to be a difficult task. First of all, we would like to thank the artists from all over the world for their diverse project ideas and their interest in working in Ruse for a month.

The decision on the winner of the scholarship was made by a five-member board of trustees of the Elias Canetti Society and the Danube Rectors ‘Conference. The exact composition of the Board of Trustees was as follows:

Mr. Sebastian Schäffer – Secretary General of the Danube Rectors ‘Conference (our sponsor)

Prof. Dr. sc. Penka Angelova – Chairperson of the IECS

Ms. Elena Velikova – Director of Ruse Art Gallery

Ms. Detelina Kamenova – Media Relations

Tatjana Alahverdjieva – Accountant

This year’s scholarship holder is the Polish visual artist ZIEMOWIT FINCEK. Congratulations! He will be in Ruse for a month to continue working on his artistic project, titled “Negentropy”.
