The Indépendance grant was first awarded in 2017 to architect-cum-artist Laura Mannelli. Based on an immersive world inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy, her exhibition The Promises of Monsters was very popular. Eager to repeat last year’s success, Banque Internationale à Luxembourg, the Fondation Indépendance and Fonds culturel national have launched another call for applications. All information concerning the eligibility criteria, the financial conditions, the necessary documents and the selection process can be found on the website of the Focuna. Applications are open until 31 March 2019.
Created in 2017, the Indépendance grant aims to promote the creation and showcasing of the digital arts by supporting the production of innovative art forms. It also ensures that these works of art are made accessible to a wide audience through exhibitions organised in the Galerie Indépendance and the production of a catalogue.
For BIL, this grant is part of its ongoing promotion of art and innovation, which is at the heart of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) policy. As part of this, exhibitions are regularly organised at the Galerie Indépendance to showcase the talent of artists representing the national cultural scene.
