E-ROUTES In-Residency Program will engage European contemporary writers of travelogues as well as artists inspired by travel experience to research cultural heritage collections within different regions of Serbia, Croatia and Italy and to create original pieces of travel storytelling in various forms of creation. The residency program offers a one-month stay in either Serbia (Belgrade), Croatia (Međimurje or Zagreb) or Italy (Napoli – Portici) between February and June 2024, covered travel and housing expenses, as well as per diem costs during the residency, for authors/artists permanently based in any European country. Applicants may chose one of the three countries for their residencies. The residency will allow authors/artists to access existing digital collections prepared by the E-ROUTES partner institutions, to use them both as material for creative work and an inspiration, so that new artistic production will emerge from this travel and stay abroad. We encourage authors and artists to be creative in their applications, with an aim of creating novel and innovative travelogues, stories, images, paintings, photographs, video recordings and other material which will be used to enrich travel routes planned within the E-ROUTES project and create new stories for the travelers of today.
