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