We are delighted to launch our Venice Fellowship 2024 Programme Partners Open call. Our Fellowship Partners are absolutely central to supporting emerging creatives and future talents and we welcome both returning and new partners each year. Partners recruit and identify the best candidates from your organisation to participate in a one-month residency during the 60th International Art Exhibition – one of the world’s most important art biennales.

Please download the PDF for further details of the Venice Fellowship, our partnership structure and agreement, roles and commitment, timeline, costs, logistics and vision. We also share our hopes for how we can best collaborate with you on this transformational initiative. 

Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to be in touch and consider joining us for one of our orientation and questions and answer drop-in sessions. These will also be recorded and available on our website as well. Details are provided below.
