Centro Scultura Scholarships

Since 2021, the Fondazione Internazionale per la Scultura awards every year, five scholarships to artists who are active in the field of three-dimensional art.

Scholarships run from May to October in Peccia (Ticino) Switzerland.

The artists that are selected for the Residency will work on their projects for 6 months from the beginning of May until the end of October with the opportunity of opting for a 3-moths stay (May to July or August to October) to be decided together with the jury once the application is confirmed. They are given a working studio/ Atelier and can access three workshops covering stone-, wood- and metalworking as well as accommodation in a studio apartment in the “Casa degli Artisti” located in the heart of Peccia, a few steps away from the Centro. The workplace is also equipped with a 20-ton crane so that even large projects can be undertaken in the local Cristallina marble.
Visits and meetings with other artists, art historians, curators, and gallery owners during the residency will allow for the exchange of ideas and practices, the acquisition of new knowledge and skills, as well as an opportunity to expand one’s network.
