Fellowship Works

We are often asked whether Fellows are expected to complete projects during their year at the Villa Concordia. The answer is no. Nevertheless, our fellows are keen to share their works-in-progress with the audiences who attend their events.  And former fellows often create or finish works later that were begun in Bamberg.  We hope the list below will inspire you to search for links yourself. Please contact us via email with any additional works you discover!
