Art School Residency

Period
September - October - November 2023
Duration
7 days

Applying for an Art School Residency in the Fall of 2023 will be possible as of February 2023.

An Art School Residency is a unique opportunity for masterprogram students of universities and colleges to develop a contemporary, print-related project – both individually or collaboratively – or work together on common goals/themes. In a professional printmaking workshop and within the context of an international residency and exhibition space, participants are invited to experiment and realize their projects and this both in a self-directed way and under the supervision of their own teacher(s).

Please note: contrary to our five-week Artist Residency program, the Art School Residency program does not include educational training from our staff, nor masterclasses. Prior knowledge of printmaking techniques is therefore required or must be provided by supervising teachers or technicians. Our team will of course offer basic technical support if necessary.

A Residence for Art Schools lasts one week and runs from Friday (arrival between 2 pm and 4 pm) until Friday (departure before 11 am). Students must be supervised by at least one technically skilled teacher. The application must be made through the educational institution.

Price

Flat rate 1: € 500 per week* (max 4 students and max 2 teachers (of whom minimum 1 with prior knowledge of printmaking techniques)) 

Flat rate 2: € 900 per week* (max 8 students and max 2 teachers (of whom minimum 1 with prior knowledge of printmaking techniques))  

Flat rate 3: € 1200 per week* (max 12 students and max 2 teachers (of whom minimum 1 with prior knowledge of printmaking techniques))  

Each flat rate includes accommodation, use of the workshops and basic materials. Paper and specific inks are not included in the price and must be brought with you. Extras such as the use of our RISO printers and laser cutters, or digital photo prints, are charged at production cost. We ask that you bring your own bedding and towels; if desired, you can also borrow these for a fee (5 per person). All additional costs are settled with the educational institution in one go, and not with students individually.

How to apply?

Applying is done digitally and in English via an online application form, available as of February 2023.

Criteria

The Frans Masereel Centrum makes its selection based on:

  • the content and relevancy of your application within contemporary printmaking;
  • the feasibility of your proposal;
  • prior knowledge and foreseen guidance regarding printmaking techniques.

The outcome of the selection procedure will be communicated the end of March 2023. If you’re selected, we will inform you about which other group(s) will share the Frans Masereel Centrum’s facilities during your residency. Additionally, we will ask you to finalize your application with additional information:

  • names of the individual participants (if not yet provided);
  • a short intended schedule of the residency time at the Frans Masereel Centrum
  • copy of insurance document that proofs the students are insured against accidents during their stay at the Frans Masereel Centrum

General conditions

The invoice for the residency has to be settled within 30 days after the billing date; otherwise the residency will be cancelled automatically.

During the residency, all residents are required to follow our housing guidelines, which you can find here.

The languages of communication at the Frans Masereel Centrum are Dutch and English. We expect you to master the English language sufficiently to be able to converse and collaborate with fellow residents and staff members.
