OPEN CALL Artist-in- residence in Delft (NL)
Foundation id11 (The Netherlands) has opened the Open Call to participate in the Artist in Residence programme organised within the framework of the EU funded project CreArt (Network of Cities for Artistic Creation). Art initiative id11 organizes artist-in-residence projects in temporarily available spaces such as vacant shops, office spaces or apartment buildings to be demolished or renovated. During the months of August and September 2013, id11 invites 8 professional artists from the CreArt network to create site-specific artwork in Delft, The Netherlands.
Delft is a city and municipality in the province of South Holland (Zuid-Holland), The Netherlands. It is located between Rotterdam and The Hague. Delft is primarily known for its typically Dutch town centre (with canals); also for the painter Vermeer, Delft Blue pottery (Delftware), the Delft University of Technology, and its association with the Dutch royal family, the House of Orange-Nassau.
The online application form to participate in this AiR programme is available in the following link:
http://creart-eu.org/application/artists-residence-delft-op-zicht and must be submitted before 24 June 2013. The decision will be announced by 30th June 2013.
One of the main goals of the CreArt project is to focus on training, innovation and experimentation programmes for the promotion of creativity. Through these Artist in Residence programmes that will be hosted soon in other CreArt cities, we aim to establish a permanent system of mobility, exchange and joint work experiences among artists from different cultural traditions across Europe.
