RaumArs offers two or three artists performing a community art project free use of the apartment each year, strives to organize work opportunities and provide a small material fee, as well as provide assistance in the implementation of the proposed community art project. Other artists pay a monthly fee. RaumArs supports all artists by paying the remaining housing and operating costs of the residence. Everyone is charged a registration fee and a cash deposit. Artists must take care of the general cost of living, travel, and transportation costs for works of art.
