ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE
The artists’ residence Künstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral in Bad Ems is an institution incorporated in the Stiftung Rheinland-Pfalz für Kultur (Foundation for Culture, Rhineland-Palatinate), from where it receives its funding. It is a place for artistic production, meeting and discussion. Since its foundation in 1995, Künstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral has attended various work projects including all disciplines of visual arts. Visual artists from Rhineland-Palatinate as well as national and international artists are sponsored through the award of artist-in-residence fellowships and project, foreign and exchange fellowships. In addition one residential fellowship is awarded to a curator.
The house also opens its doors to the public and features a wide-ranging program with events such as guided tours, open studios, lectures, exhibitions, artist courses, concerts and a summer festival.
The Förderkreis Balmoral 03 e.V. (registered fundraising group, Balmoral 03) was formed in 2003 to support the activities of the artists’ house.
The artists’ house is located in Bad Ems, a historical spa town with a population of 10,000. It lies close to the river Lahn and is about 18 km from Koblenz. The A3 motorway can be used to reach Cologne and Frankfurt quickly.
