Development Residency

Residency programme

The development residency is open to artists and collectives living and/or working in and around Antwerp, of any age and active in any medium, who want to develop their work during a longer stay, in dialogue with peers. We pay particular attention to inspiring exchanges between the international and the local, as well as the cross-pollination between visual arts and ‘live’ practices such as sound art, performance, cooking, gardening, etc., which, in comparison to traditional art spaces, fit well into a residency context.

Our team provides the residents with financial, practical and curatorial support to develop their work in an open environment that encourages critical dialogue and artistic experimentation. The programme is structured in weekly sessions and includes studio visits, exhibition visits, collective discussions and curated dinners in the company of visiting artists and other guests. The residency includes a monthly grant, an individual studio space in the monastery and use of the common spaces in the MORPHO house. Accommodation is not provided.
