Founded in 2008, MORPHO is a non-profit organisation dedicated to artistic development. We give time, space and resources to artists by providing residencies and studios, with the aim of fostering a dynamic and sustainable context for artistic work. As a studio provider, we rent out workspaces in a growing number of buildings in and around the city of Antwerp. As an artist residency, we annually host around 20 residents from Belgium and abroad whom we support in their projects and trajectories. The programme consists of weekly collective sessions in an environment that encourages dialogue and experimentation.
