Open call:
Travel & accommodation grants

The “Truth is concrete” grant programme – covering travel, accommodation and food – invites 100 students, artists, activists and theorists interested in artistic strategies in politics from all over the world to Graz.

You can apply by sending an informal letter including your personal details (address, phone, email, date of birth). Please provide a substantial C.V. and a comprehensive description of your interest in the topic of the marathon, especially focussing on your own work related to artistic strategies in politics and political strategies in art.

Give and take
steirischer herbst covers the costs of travelling to Graz (2nd class/economy, for ecological reasons preferably by train) and provides accommodation for 7–9 days (arrival 19–21/09, departure 29–30/09) in a dormitory-like sleeping facility (shared rooms) by raumlaborberlin on the camp premises. The grant includes three meals a day as well as free admission to all events of “Truth is concrete” (subject to availability). In return, we expect all participants to stay in Graz for the whole duration of the project and to participate actively in the programme. Like any camp, “Truth is concrete” depends on the social responsibility of the occupants. Although we cannot provide hotel standards, we nevertheless want to make the camp a worthwhile experience together with all the occupants. Therefore, mutual understanding and shared responsibility, and perhaps some active help, will be appreciated, as well as possible involvement in or contribution to the programme of the marathon.

Spoken language is English.
