APPLICATIONS NOW ACCEPTED FOR 2 RESIDENCIES AT HET WILDE WETEN, ROTTERDAM

Artists and curators working in the field of contemporary art are invited to apply for a residency at Het Wilde Weten, Rotterdam, from February 2018 – April 2018 (3 months), or May 2018 – Sept 2018 (5 months).

ARTIST IN RESIDENCY
Het Wilde Weten is an independent artist initiative in Rotterdam providing artist studios, a public platform for contemporary art, culture discussion and debate, and an Artist in Residency program. The residency provides Dutch and International artists the opportunity to live and work in a studio-building amongst 16 active artists. With the residency we aim to promote cultural exchange connecting parallel practices. Rotterdam has a vibrant art scene with many artist-run initiatives, galleries and exhibition spaces. A residency at Het Wilde Weten is a great way to get in touch with this network of artists and art institutions.

On the first floor the guest artist of Het Wilde Weten has access to a 30-sqm studio that is furnished with a chair, loft bed, refrigerator, wardrobe and a large table. There is a private shower and shared toilet adjacent to the studio. Downstairs is a shared kitchen, on the second floor there’s a coffee corner. The guest artist has access to a bicycle and internet connection. Due to fire safety regulations we can only accept individual artists living in the building.

We will provide support for our guest residents in connecting them with artists, curators or other agents working in their field. With that in mind our guests are asked to give an artist talk, as an introduction to the Rotterdam art scene and fellow HWW-members. These events are often organised in cooperation with the other Artist in Residence programs in Rotterdam so that several guest artists who at that point reside in Rotterdam get to know each other and the city’s cultural actors in an informal setting. Upon request an exhibition/event in the 80 sqm exhibition space of Het Wilde Weten is possible.

Costs of the guest studio at Het Wilde Weten are €350,00 per month.
Unfortunately Het Wilde Weten does not offer funding for our guest studio program. However we can provide a letter of invitation on request in order for you to apply for funding.
