Residency in Holland (October 2019)

Residency for one or two persons in a spacious mansion in a green village.

Description of residency program
OBRAS-Holland offers (emerging) professional artists an inspiring residency in a spacious mansion in which one or two artists live and work largely on their own. It is located at the edge of a pleasant village surrounded by nature, with good connections to bigger cities. Several museums and other cultural highlights are in the direct surroundings (doable with an easy bike ride). The house is especially suited for visual arts and desk work.

The local hostess gives support when needed and can organize contact with local artists. Generally we expect you to give an artist talk in an informal atmosphere.But first of all it is largely a help-your-self place.

Duration of residency
1 month 

Disciplines, work equipment, and assistance
The residence is especially suited for visual arts and writing. Basic equipment for painting is available.

Accommodation and studio/ workspace
You live in a stylish mansion, surrounded by a garden. You use the ground floor and part of the first floor. Available are an enclosed veranda / sitting room, a spacious kitchen / living room, a sleeping room (3,5 x 3,5 m) with two beds, a bathroom and toilet. There is an extra bedroom on the first floor.

The working studio is 5 x 9m and 3.60m high and can be divided into two halves. One half can be used as office and the other half can be used for painting and art work. One wall is especially useful to fix large size works on.
