The Rijksakademie stimulates artistic development and forward-thinking art, working with a global perspective. For over 150 years we have brought together innovative and talented Dutch and international artists, and have invested in the roots of new art forms and movements. Our vision is that art is a crucial factor in an open and innovative society, in which artists question, positively stimulate, inspire and thus enrich lives.

Join us today and support a new generation of artists.

Programme Support

The Rijksakademie is able to innovate and reach a larger audience thanks to the support of funds, companies and private donors. All of them play a crucial role in the creation of our new artistic and public activities. They make possible the organisation of the annual Open Studios, the educational programme Art Mediation, the public lectures and the development of the technical labs.

With the generous support of our main partner Ammodo we are able to renew an important aspect of the residency programme, namely inviting advisors, guest-artists and experts from other disciplines. The Rijksakademie will also introduce short residencies and will invite experts from different generations and disciplines.

DOEN Foundation is supporting the new social practice lab and the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds contributes to the purchase of a new kiln in the ceramics lab.
