Apply now for Rijksakademie artist residency in Amsterdam

The application period to the Rijksakademie van Beldeende Kunsten residency programme in Amsterdam is from 1 January to 1 February 2020.

Every year, a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki has the chance to be awarded a grant by the Saastamoinen Foundation if they get selected to the residency programme.

Rijksakademie offers residencies to around fifty artists (for one year, with year extension) with the goal of providing space for research, experiment and production. Apart from facilities such as a studio, work budget and stipend, there is a research and production infrastructure. Internationally active artists, theoreticians and other advisors pay individual studio visits and are involved in seminars, discussions, lectures and presentations. The advisors come from different continents, cultures and generations, and offer a wide variety of views, reflecting the diversity of contemporary art practice.

Every year artists at the Rijksakademie have different backgrounds, cultures and diverse views. Almost all artists have completed an (arts)education and preferably three to five years of professional experience.

The application to the residency programme is organised by Rijksakademie. Read more about the residency programme and see the call for applications.
