AIR Antwerpen is an international residence project for artists located on the border between the old and the new harbour, close to the city centre.
AIR Antwerpen is more than a receptive workplace for artists from abroad. The organisation wishes to profile itself as a breeding ground for contemporary art, a place where art is developed and where artistic research is pursued.
AIR Antwerpen offers living and working spaces to:
- Artists from abroad
- Artists living and working in Flanders who wish to undertake a collaboration with an artist from abroad
- Possible partners in the cultural field, in the context of co-productions and related presentations.
In the former lockmaster's residence AIR Antwerpen offers space for 5 furnished living and work spaces with a surface of approximately 30m2.
Individual apartments combined with studio.
The location of Antwerp - a city with a rich cultural heritage and a thriving contemporary art scene - forms an excellent basis for a fascinating artist's stay. With the support of the City Harbour Company AIR Antwerpen has found a fabulous home in the former 19th century lockman's residence on the Royerslock on het Eilandje (the island), in the Antwerp Harbour.
