At ROOT social commitment is central: makers who want to commit to social issues and who want to create a new way of looking, thinking and behaving with their work. We select a diverse group of makers who want to contribute to this positive, dynamic place. Makers come from e.g. performing arts, visual arts, or are musicians, technical artists, activists, scientists, etc.
In the residency you have a workspace, depending on your needs, and you stay in a characteristic villa from 1912 on the edge of the park. At the end of your residency, you take part in an event, where the audience can meet you and your work process.
The residency is located at Landpark Assisië: a terrain with forests, meadows, water and parks, where care is provided to people with intellectual disabilities. Nature reserves Loonse & Drunense Duinen, Campina and Leemkuilen are within walking and cycling distance.
Please send us a motivation letter or video and a glimpse into your work (via online materials, portfolio, cv…)
The costs for the residency per 6 weeks are 690 euro inclusive private and communal living areas, a studio, a big garden with a campfire place and service charges for internet, gas, water and light.
