From January 31 to May 5


Since 1993, Fundación Botín has awarded Art Grants each year, aimed at artists of any nationality. Each grant provides funding of 23,000€ and promotes and supports those artists who need resources to carry out a research project or training. The result of this process is displayed in the Itinerarios joint exhibition and in a catalogue.

Who can apply

Fundación Botín announces its new call for projects to award 6 Art Grants meant to support individual art projects that may consist of training (academic or not), research (non academic), and production. Artists of any nationality may apply.

One of these grants will be given in priority to a Spanish artist or resident at least five years prior to the application to this grant, under the age of 30 who have a concrete project of relocating abroad to carry out their project (training, research and production).
