The prestigeous Rijksakademie in the Netherlands is open for applications to their 2011 residency. Resident artists have usually successfully completed their (art) studies and have already worked independently as artists for three to five years prior to their application.
One is initially admitted for a work period of one year (January to December). Whether a second year is considered worthwhile, is decided in mutual consultation.
The selection procedure consists of a number of rounds. Demonstrable artistic quality and development potential are the decisive factors here. Following the first selection rounds in April/May, a number of candidates are invited for an interview in May/June at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam. The successful candidates are announced at the beginning of July.
Application for the 2011 residency
One can apply for the coming residency (starting in January 2011) between December 1, 2009 and February 1, 2010. Note that an complete application has to arrive by February 1, 2010. Incomplete or late applications will not be considered.
