Artist Residencies Enschede (ARE) is a two-guest studio residency, within the building of the art initiative B93, a local artists collective. The residency studios are spacious and include the facilities to live and work. Basic tools and work equipment are available. The artist is invited for 3 months* and is expected to present his/her research in an exhibition at the end of the stay.
The residency includes the use of all facilities (private room, studio, computer equipment, wireless internet, kitchen, bathroom, washing machine/dryer, and basic tools). Selected artists are granted with a solo exhibition and/ or studio visit at art initiative B93, by the end of their stay. ARE provides the resident artists with a material budget for the final presentation/ exhibition, depending on individual projects, but advises artists to secure additional funding from elsewhere.
The residency period is scheduled as follows:
Period 1: January-March,
Period 2: April-June
Period 3: July-September,
Period 4: October-November
*Period 4 is two months.
