Accommodation Information 

'Het Tijdelijk Verblijf' is the name of the living accommodation of the resident artist. The AiR is a pleasant room which brings you back to a 1970's atmosphere. The room has a private bathroom with shower and toilet and is suitable for a maximum two of persons. In Spring/Summer months we also offer the Carvan Club as a second possible AiR accommodation. The caravan is suitable for one person and has, dependant on the number of resident artists, a shared badroom. A third AiR accommodation is the attic of the stable, used in the Sping/Summer for small groups, like theater groups or bands. Internet is available.

The nearest store is 6 km away, but every week, on Monday, the area is served by a SRV (mobile store). Because the stores are not just around the corner. id11 offers the possibility to join the vegetarian and organic meals (an extra charge for food will be required).

Studio Information 

For working space id11 has different possibilities. There is a large outdoor area, a workshop, a shed and a studio. In consultation it will be verified which option is the most suitable.


The Artist-in-Residence is located in Rutten. Rutten is situated in the Noordoostpolder (North-East-polder) and is a part of Flevoland the youngest province in the Netherlands. Rutten is the most Northern village of the North-East polder. The first farms/houses of Rutten date back to 1953. Rutten is located in a predominantly agricultural area. The Noordoostpolder is an area of new land extracted from the sea and devised on the drawing table by Cornelis Lely. Whose 1891 plan formed the basis for what were to become the Zuiderzee Works. 'Zuiderzeewerken' are a man made system of dams, land reclamation and water drainage works, the largest hydraulic engineering project undertaken by the Netherlands during the twentieth century. The project involved the damming of the Zuiderzee, a large, shallow inlet of the North Sea, and the reclamation of land in the newly enclosed water using polders. Its main purposes are to improve flood protection and create additional land for agriculture. In the 1930's the Zuiderzee was closed to the North Sea. Since then, it has been called the IJsselmeer. The Noordoostpolder was fully drained on 9 September 1942. The Noordoostpolder area is characterised by agriculture, fruit growing, tulip fields and the tulip route. The open space of the Noordoostpolder is impressive; it is a place where you can once again admire the stars. At the same time you are within reach of cities such as Leeuwarden, Zwolle and Lelystad. In the neighborhood there are two museums. Museum Schokland is located in the old village, which was an island before the process of drainage. Museum Nagele is located in the new village, which was designed by i.a. Gerrit Rietveld in the 1950's. Nagele is the last of ten villages in the Noordoostpolder.
