Fundashon Plataforma Kultural


BonAIResidence offers the opportunity to stay elsewhere in a creative and rural environment in order to concentrate, to do research, to produce, to connect and to collaborate. The residents can do field research and explore new perspectives and use this in their work. They ask the resident to find creative solutions for challenges in the community and create alternate approaches for issues in the community. A connection between the resident and the people who visit Hòfi Kultural is vital.
Since 2017 the cultural centre Hòfi Kultural offers cultural activities for the community of Kralendijk. Artists who work in BonAIResidence get acces to this inspiring place, situated in the neighbourhood of Antriol.
The hosts want to share their expertise with others and stimulate mutual inspiration between artists and the community and want to contribute to a more creative, inclusive and social community through meetings on an regular basis between people in the neighbourhood and artists, to inspire eachother by (performing)arts and by teaching art.


 Artists are asked to leave a permanent artwork at BonAIResidence and inspiration for the community.
