Cultureland is a foundation that organizes creative work periods, projects and activities at the cutting edge of culture and nature. Cultureland began an Artist In Residence program in January 2017, giving artists time and space to develop work relating to the landscape and natural environment.
The Cultureland Artist in Residency program starts in Amsterdam, where the artist or researcher can explore the cultural and scientific life that the city has to offer. They organize a kick-off meeting with the artist to meet other professionals and to start a conversation about the project. After this introduction, the artist retires for a production period at a rural location called Buitenwerkplaats in the Starnmeer. Buitenwerkplaats is surrounded by typical Dutch polder landscape. In the studio there is room to produce and reflect on the project. Finally, the artist returns to Amsterdam to finalize the residency. The artist displays the project in the Storefront 181, a former shop on the Admiraal de Ruijterweg 181. Before returning home, the artist presents the results of the residency period to evaluate it.
Open call 2019 we are our landscape: Our physical environment, the way our ancestors confronted, shaped, and adapted to their natural surroundings, frames the development of our cultural, communal identities. And perhaps our personal identities, too, are framed by our personal experiences of the landscapes we grow up with and those we choose to settle in.'
Cultureland invites artists to explore the influence of landscape on identity, heritage, difference and coexistence. Find more information about this specific call here.
To help achieve the goals, the artist is asked:
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.
