Art Residency at GLO´ART, Lanaken Belgium

Description of residency program
GLO’ART aims at helping young artists to build their career in art, 
to become recognized and well-known international artists.

The concept: GLO’ART starts scouting for young art talents throughout the world and to invite them for a stay of 1 to 6 weeks in a unique art centre in Belgium. Within a period of two years, GLO’ART strives to select a hundred potential artists to join it. These are housed during their stay in a luxurious private residence and gain every opportunity to freely show and present their work during this period. GLO’ART offers a variety of accommodation and equipment to support the artists.

For every form of art GLO’ART has separate workshops arranged (painting, sculpture, photography, digital, and free arts). It is intended that during the stay of 1 to 6 weeks, the artists can show their capabilities and skills by making their own art. In that way they deliver a true impression of themselves to the GLO’ART organization. Their presentations and work are discussed and a file of their work laid out. By the end of the second year, ten artists are elected to become associates of GLO’ART. This election is made by an international jury of renowned art experts and is based on the interviews, congestion and artworks made.

These associates will have a contract and thus will be offered the amazing ability to penetrate into the international art world. The GLO’ART marketing and sales team will thereby fully support them. It is for the winners a blazed path to international recognition. The GLO’ART sales department will sell the artworks they produce. In this way, the winners have all the possibilities to focus and develop themselves in their artistry and creativity, and do not need to concern themselves with the financial side of being an artist.
