Akademie Schloss Solitude

Akademie Schloss Solitude

With its international programmes the Akademie Schloss Solitude supports young and particularly gifted artists. Apart from those also scientists of such disciplines as Music or Arts are welcome to apply for scholarships. The Schloss Solitude is not only a place for artistic and scientific exchange, but also a possibility for young scientists and artists to retire from their daily life. This way Zukunftskolleg Fellows are given the opportunity to attend a retreat from one up to three months time.

The academy is a part of a young artists' international network including the disciplines of Architecture, Art, Design, Literature, Music and Video/Film/New Media. Within the programme art, sciences & business the academy offers young scientists the opportunity to join this network and to further develop it. By means of this programme Fellows of the Zukunftskolleg also have the opportunity to find new cooperation partners.

The project Tausche deine Arbeitswelt within the framework of the Kreativitäts- und Innovationsring des Landes Baden-Württemberg is further offering an interesting opportunity to switch profession for a while, take over someone else's job and this way gain a new perspective onto one's own work. Zukunftskolleg coordinator Anda Lohan attended this programme in summer 2011 and was given the unique experience to take a closer look at the profession of an architect. Being more than enthusiastic about this experience she highly recommends this programme to Zukunftskolleg Fellows.

The Academy coordinates the "Kreativitäts- und Innovationsring des Landes Baden-Württemberg" which is supported by the Landesministerium für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kunst. Representatives of institutions in the areas of Art, Culture and Science gather twice or three times annually in order to intensify institutional collaborations as well as the economic potential of the creative economy. Representatives of the Zukunftskolleg are also invited to these meetings.
