In the 16th century Besiendershuis on the quay of the river Waal in Nijmegen, in early October 2010 the project ‘Artist in Residence (A.I.R.) Besienders Huis / ‘Straight Flow’ has started.
This new cultural initiative differs from other A.I.R. projects because it concerns a double invitation. Every year a number of Nijmegen arts and cultural organizations are given the opportunity to invite a special guest for a stay of two months. The purpose of the residency period is all about a cooperation between the host organization and its special guest, and results in a number of public events in which this cooperation is expressed.
The overarching goal of the AIR Besiendershuis project is to realize quality programmes by which the reputation of the host institution itself, and also the arts and culture of the city of Nijmegen in its entirety are enhanced and as such radiate beyond their borders.
