Françoise van den Bosch Foundation

Françoise van den Bosch Foundation

Françoise van den Bosch Residency

Description 

The Françoise van de Bosch Foundation, named after the jewellery designer Françoise van den Bosch (1944-1977) was conceived in 1980 by prominent members of the Dutch progressive jewellery community and members of her family. Its aim is to stimulate and promote contemporary jewellery.

Every year the Françoise van den Bosch Foundation invites jewellery artists from outside the Netherlands to apply for a two months working period in a studio in Amsterdam (May – June). The foundation offers an opportunity to live and work in one of the most active jewellery communities in the world. The resident can use a studio apartment/workshop and receives a €500 grant. The studio is provided by jewellery maker Rian de Jong and her spouse Herman Marres.

Interested jewellery artists are welcome to apply year round by sending an email to the board of the foundation. Based on a work plan the board will make a selection. They encourage makers that seek international exchange, for instance by making contacts within the Dutch jewellery community as well as presenting their own work to a Dutch audience. In December of each year the organizers will contact the resident for the upcoming year.

Outcome 
  • Window - exhibition/presentation
  • Lecture at Gerrit Rietveld Academy
  • Online report
Accommodation Information 

One studio and appartment (yearly from May 1 to June 30).

Studio Information 

The studio is well equipped and includes a full-furnished apartment. The studio cannot be used for heavy or dirty work (no gypsum, dust and dirt, no heavy metalworking). Further restrictions: no pets, no smoking! Limited guest stay. The apartment is appropriate for one person.
The applicant should have a professional practice as an art jewellery and be able to work at the studio on a defined project or body of work. The applicant is a ‘networker’, e.g. makes contact with the local jewellery community. The Foundation can assist and introduce.
