The costs for visa applications are to be covered by the applicants themselves. Failure to secure a visa will not be grounds for a refund, so please check with your embassy.

Workshop

That depends on your work process.

We highly encourage participants to use this experience as the base for a body of works, a series, as inspiration and method for future works. Participants will, however, follow through one story / idea / concept from beginning to end, and may have a final draft or even finished result at the end of the workshop.

You may go home with a series of sketches, a short film, a small series of poems, a finished drawing, a woven necklace, sufficient footage for a feature film, a collage made of plants, a series of photos to base your future work on, interviews to base a character on…
