The "Poortgebouw" is the name of an extraordinary 19th century building, a national monument in Rotterdam's Kop van Zuid district located on the south bank of the river Maas. The majority of today's "Poortgebouwers" contribute to various realms of art and culture throughout Rotterdam. In October 2008, the Poortgebouw started its own Artist-in-Residence program. They invite artists from diverse artistic backgrounds - writers, visual artists, musicians, architects, hackers, performers - who would like to research/develop a project in the Netherlands to apply.
Studio space (30m2), Internet and utilities are provided.
