De Ateliers

De Ateliers


De Ateliers is an independent artists' institute, founded in 1963 by and for visual artists. The monumental building in the centre of Amsterdam offers twenty spacious studios. These are placed at the disposal of young, talented artists from within the Netherlands and abroad for a two year working period. Participants of De Ateliers develop their work to the highest level, supported with the feedback and guidance of internationally acclaimed artists. This way, De Ateliers seeks to stimulate the conversation and exchange between beginning artists and their established peers. Next to this unique format, De Ateliers offers lecture series, various exhibitions, technical assistance and an extensive network. As an internationally renowned institution, De Ateliers receives financial support from the Ateliers Support Fund and the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Sciences.



Accommodation Information 

De Ateliers rents out eighteen rooms located on five addresses in Amsterdam Centre and Amsterdam-East, which are first offered to foreign participants.

Studio Information 

The studio spaces are seventy to one-hundred square meters in size. Most of them have tall windows facing northward. Each student receives a key to his or her own work space and a key to the building, so that it is possible to work there at any time. Beginning students are assigned a studio. After the first working year, they are given the opportunity to choose a studio. The use of the studio space is subject to regulations (such as the fact that the studio may not be used as living quarters).


De Ateliers is located in the center of Amsterdam, by public transportation about ten minutes from Centraal Station or thirty minutes from Schiphol Airport.
