International Summer Residency Aschersleben
“Working, Learning & a comfortable atmosphere”. These terms describe Aschersleben, the oldest town in Saxony-Anhalt, best. Education, art and culture are important issues for the city, especially at the educational center Bestehornpark, in which the International Summer School takes place once a year since 2015. Four artists will get the opportunity to be part of the artistic program, which offers a studio and living space including furniture, electricity, water, heating and internet access for three months from June to September 2024. During their work, the artists will be accompanied by press and public relations. On the website of Aschersleben you will find further information about the studio program.
