Greylight Projects

Greylight Projects


Greylight Projects is an artist-run organization founded in 2009. It focuses on supporting artists´ research and practices by facilitating, (co-)producing and/or organizing events. Greylight Projects has no restriction in terms of media or origins of artistic practices. The residency program has been an organic and intuitive development since the beginning. The program focuses on the work of the artist and how this could be elevated through dialogue and shared with the public.

Greylight Projects created a space for contemporary art practices in a former school building in the city of Heerlen (Limburg, the Netherlands). The location is composed of 7 studios for visual artists, a residency place, a workshop, a garden and a multi-purpose space called “the Salon’.

Where are we now? Spring Residency
Greylight Projects platform for art and culture in Heerlen, the Netherlands, launches an open call for a three-month residency (April-June 2022). Artists who are based in The Netherlands, Belgium or Germany are invited to apply.
Guided by the open-ended question “Where are we now?” Greylight Projects invites artists to reflect on the relationships between art, space, time and the public. How do we experience the changing (mental) architecture we inhabit? How does the fluid self engage with spaces of everyday life? How can art reflect on spatial and temporal relations?

The residency takes place at Greylight Projects in Heerlen, the Netherlands. The artist is invited to give a presentation of the artist's practice at the start of the residency as an introduction to the public and interested members of the cultural field. The form of a final public presentation will be determined during the residency. The artist will be guided by the team of Greylight Projects throughout the residency.
