RCF - Travel grants - General Fund - Deadline: 31.01.2019


The Roberto Cimetta Fund launches the General Fund for Artistic and Cultural Mobility in the Euro-Arab-Middle East region on 1st January 2019. Artists and cultural operators living and working in Europe, North Africa and Middle East can apply. Priority is given to mobility from the South and East of this region.


The General Fund is open to all requests for travel grants that respect the eligibility criteria of RCF. Candidates can apply from 1st to 31st January 2019.


The following general criteria of RCF apply to this fund.


1) The aim of your trip must directly or indirectly show potential for a constructive and longterm impact on the arts’ sector in your own country. This means that your travel must contribute to your own capacity building, which in turn can be shared in a “networking” fashion that will benefit connecting artists and operators in your region so as to maintain, renew and develop contemporary arts.


2) Travel can take place as soon as the call opens but in this case the applicant runs the risk of paying for travel without guarantee of the success of the application.


3) Applicant’s profile:

- Nationality: no nationality criteria

- Age: no age criteria

- Profession: performers, creators, teachers, cultural organisers, administrators, entrepreneurs, project leaders.

- Financial means: applicants who are unable to find the financial resources themselves.


4) Applications must be made by individuals and not by organisations. Only three members of a group can apply for a grant concerning the same project/group/venue. Applicants can only receive three RCF grants in total and only one application per person is possible at each call. Applicants must choose the cheapest form of transport and can only apply for one international return travel ticket and visa costs (local transport, per diems and accommodation are not covered by this fund).


RCF will only use personal data in the application forms for the evaluation and selection process and for no other purpose.


The results of the selection will be announced 1st April 2019 (Deadline for receiving completed application files: 31/01/2019).

RSS - Call For Applications: Master of Arts in Transdisciplinary Studies


Are you specialised in a particular discipline-and at times concerned about how open and porous your specialism is in relation to other disciplines? Do you have questions about your discipline-and are unable to find satisfactory answers in discussing them with your peers? Do you have experience as a practising artist-and yet feel uncertain when experimenting with unfamiliar formats? Are you convinced about the fruitfulness of a critical debate between the arts and the sciences-but haven't yet found a suitable framework for such a debate? If you have such or similar questions, you will feel at home at our MA Transdisciplinary Studies.
The new arises both on the edges of or at the interfaces between traditional disciplines be it in the arts, the sciences, or everyday life. Our postgraduate program me explores precisely these interfaces and intersections, and serves as a hinge and hub between the arts, the sciences, and society. Here, at Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK), we see transdisciplinarity as a form of cooperation capable of opening up innovative perspectives, questions, and solutions. 


Coursework is dedicated to building the transversal skills needed to deepen, extend, and position one's specialist skills with a view to developing and competently pursuing new questions, methods, and core working areas. We aim to contribute to the professionalisation of transdisciplinary work and to equipping students with the skills and qualifications needed for unforeseeable professional tasks. Our programme builds on the manifold teaching and research competencies at Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK), on the specialist skills of our students, and on possible connections with various professional fields.


Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) is a vibrant centre for teaching, research, and production excellence. While firmly anchored in Greater Zurich, our influence extends well beyond Switzerland to the wider international stage. We offer a broad range of degree programmes and further education courses in education, design, film, art & media, dance, theatre, and music. Closely interrelating teaching and research, weprovide an ideal setting for transdisciplinary projects. Committed to bridging higher education, professional practice, and the interests of the wider public, we showcase the work and achievements of our staff and students in our own exhibition spaces, theatres, and various dance and concert halls. Our Theatre of the Arts presents cutting-edge student productions, our concert halls are home to concerts almost every day, and the Mehrspur Music Club offers a wide variety of pop and jazz concerts. Our affiliated museums-the Museum of Design and the Bellerive Museum-present a rich array of acclaimed art and design exhibitions. Hosting over 600 events each year, we make a significant contribution to cultural life in the city and region of Zurich.
