Art & Science




Cultureland believes a good residency is a period in which there is time for research, reflection and refinement, and is currently looking for projects about the relationship between culture and nature.

Artists are offered a residency period at an urban as well as a rural location:
- 2 weeks in Amsterdam
- 4 weeks at buitenwerkplaats
- 2 weeks in Amsterdam

The residency starts in Amsterdam, where artists can visit art-spaces, the university and several theaters. A kick-off meeting will be organized to meet other professionals and start a conversation about the project. This is followed by a period of 4 weeks at Buitenwerkplaats. Buitenwerkplaats is located amidst the typical Dutch polder-landscape, allowing artists to reflect and work in quiet.

The conclusive working period in Amsterdam is used for making a display of the project in the storefront of Cultureland, where an event is organised to present and discuss the work.
