Art & Science




Cultureland is a foundation that organizes creative work periods, projects and activities at the cutting edge of culture and nature, giving artists time and space to develop work relating to the landscape and natural environment. The program starts in Amsterdam, where the artist or researcher can explore the cultural and scientific life that the city has to offer. Here is organized a kick-off meeting to meet other professionals to start a conversation about the project. Accordingly the artist retires for a production period at a rural location called Buitenwerkplaats in Starnmeer. Buitenwerkplaats is
surrounded by typical Dutch polder landscape and offers space to produce and reflect on the project. Finally, the project in concluded in Amsterdam with a presentation in the Storefront 181, a former shop at the Admiraal de Ruijterweg 181.


To help achieve the goals, the artist is asked:
⁃ A photo and a text on the project for the website, before arrival.
⁃ A life presentation of the cultureland project.
⁃ A display about the project in the Storefront at Admiraal de Ruijterweg 181. This storefront is a former shopwindow on the public street with a cross-section of Amsterdam residents that pass-by every day. The measurements of the storefront are approximately 1.85 m high  and 2.4 m wide on each side of the front-door. The depth of the storefront-space is 0.6 m.
⁃ A3 (420 x 297 mm) piece of work such as a drawing, painting, image, text or 3D work, to stay in Amsterdam, adding to a series of cultureland air
⁃ A photo (without text) and a text on the project towards the end of the work period, in order to announce the presentation in a newsletter and
for the website.

Accommodation Information 

Cultureland provides private live/work space in both Amsterdam and at Buitenwerkplaats. A bike for local transport is available at both locations. Also there is a budget of € 500,- for material costs during the residency (receipts). Cultureland does not offer a fee for the residents, so the artists pay for food and travel costs themselves. There is always one artist in Amsterdam and one at Buitenwerkplaats. The majority of time is spent working independently , but there will be opportunities for the artists to meet.
