A call for applications for the 2010 UNESCO-Aschberg Bursaries for Artists has begun. “As an implementation instrument of the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions, the program promotes the mobility of young artists through sojourns in art residencies abroad so as to foster creativity and cultural diversity. It recognizes the important contribution of artists in the creative process and their central role in nurturing the diversity of cultural expressions. Artist-in-residence bursaries are being offered in institutions around the world in the following three fields: visual arts, creative writing, and music,” reports the UNESCO website.
