Can I get funding to come to ARTISA Academic and Art retreat?
Many universities and institutions provide financial assistance to their PhD students and staff members (scientists as well as other university staff) for sabbaticals, writing, training or personal development costs, obtaining grants, staying abroad, travel costs etc. Because Artisa is registered at the CRKBO in the Netherlands you generally can use these budgets to finance our programs. Contact your HRM expert for the possibilities. Also, many universities have conditions of employment through which you can exchange the costs of our programs and eventually your travel costs for holidays or gross salary.

In many countries there are possibilities for artists to obtain grants for the financing of an artistic or research project. Directories of funds are available in public libraries and on the internet.

crkboArtisa has been registered at the Central Register for Teaching, CRKBO, in The Netherlands. We are recognized as a professional training company. All courses and retreats are exempt from VAT. Universities and other institutions have various budgets to finance our programs. Contact your HRM expert for more information.
