The twelve-month residencies are linked to the joint project Silent University Ruhr by Ringlokschuppen Ruhr in Mülheim a. d. Ruhr and Urbane Künste Ruhr, which was launched in 2015.
The three-month residencies are linked to the KunstVereineRuhr, which draws on experience from a wide range of residency programmes and offers ideal networking opportunities with a total of 16 houses spread across the entire Ruhr area.
