Writer in residence with Atelier Mondial
In 2014, Atelier Mondial (formerly iaab), together with the Literaturhaus Basel and the Literaturhaus Freiburg, started a writer in residency programme in Paris and Basel.
The residency abroad is intended to offer scholarship holders an opportunity for research and to provide stimulus for their literary work. On top of this, scholarship holders have the chance to engage with the local cultural scene in Paris and Basel, make contacts and exchange ideas and inspiration. The scholarship offers the chance to work and live in an international artist's residence in Paris or in a studio on the Dreispitz, as well as providing a contribution to living costs.
