Every year you can apply for a residency of 12 months at the Jan van Eyck Academie. The annual call for applications is open from July–October.
Artists, designers, architects, landscape architects, curators, critics, fashion designers, writers are invited to apply. Apply if you need the time and space that is needed to develop your talents, to discover as yet unexplored perspectives and delve into deeper layers of yourself. Every applicant shares our belief that insight comes through exchange with other: insight in the meaning of things, in your own practice, in the (art) world. The multiform character of the Van Eyck appeals to the artistic and intellectual versatility of the artists and enables them to deepen and ramify their talents and skills in the short and long run. The work of the artists testifies to an art practice that is investigative and committed.
