The Jan van Eyck Academie is a post academic institute open for artists, designers, photographers, (landscape) architects, writers, critics and curators from all over the world.

- A residency at the Jan van Eyck Academie varies between 6 up to 12 months. You can start beginning of April 2018. By mutual agreement, the residency can commence at a later date

- 35 up to 40 spots are available each year

- Duo's or collectives can apply with 1 project proposal for 1 place at the Van Eyck (this also means sharing 1 studio and 1 stipend and sharing the enrolment fee)
