Guidelines of assistance

Martin Roth-Initiative facilitates and funds temporary relocation for artists at risk and cultural actors to Germany or to third countries. They also commission research on relocation and protection.


Martin Roth Initiative protects artists who are committed in their home country to the freedom of art, democracy, and human rights. Successful candidates are provided with a monthly scholarship and temporary residence in Germany or third countries with a duration of 12 to 24 months. The program puts an emphasis on collaboration with the cultural scenes and local civil society in the host countries, so those scholarship holders are enabled to promote their professional development.
