Het Wilde Weten manages an Artist in Residence program, providing (international) artists the opportunity to live and work in Rotterdam. The art scene in Rotterdam has a young and international character because of the presence of many artspaces, artist run spaces and Artist in Residence programs that provide the city with artists from all over the world of a relatively young age.
The Artist in Residence program of Het Wilde Weten is open to artists and curators working in the field of contemporary art.
Guest artists visit Het Wilde Weten through (international) partner organizations, applications by individuals or through open calls which are published on our website and newsletter whenever the guest studio is available.
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, wardrobe and a large table for desk related work. There is a private shower and shared toilet adjacent to the studio.
Downstairs is a shared kitchen while on the second floor there is a coffee corner. Furthermore the guest artist has access to a bicycle and a wireless internet connection. Towels and bedding are provided.
The duration of an Artist in Residence is usually three months.
At some point the guest artist will be asked to give an artist talk to serve as an introduction to the Rotterdam art scene and fellow HWW-members.
These artist talks 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 give a short introduction in an informal setting.
The guest studio of Het Wilde Weten costs €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 in your own country.
