Sound Development City Artists Expedition (Fully Funded)

Sound Development City Artists Expedition (Fully Funded)

Deadline: April 11, 2016

Sound Development City is a three-week expedition to two annually changing cities for artists from all disciplines and from around the world. Sound Development City gives artists time – time for processes to develop, for experimentation, for taking new paths – but also time to go astray, to detect and discover the unexpected. Sound Development City is looking for independent and dedicated project proposals that are to be tested and put into practice during a three-week journey to Madrid and Casablanca in September 2016.

The artist expedition is a laboratory for the exploration of creative strategies, bold visions and forms of expressions. Sound Development City is an adventure, a place for experimentation, and a research lab, and it offers a productive environment for exchange and collaboration.


  • Travel costs, daily expenses and budget required for the individual projects are supplied;
  • Sound Development City provides a stipend to all participants;
  • No participation fee required.


  • Open to artists working in any discipline, from around the world and of all ages;
  • Artists who distinguish themselves through a process-oriented approach to their work, through curiosity and an explorative mindset;
  • Creative people, who make use of the intensity of the expedition in a productive and innovative way;

  • The selected artists must agree to take part in the expedition throughout its entire duration;
