The Rijksakademie offers a two-year international residency programme to around fifty artists that provides space for research, experiment and production of new work.
Residents are supported with a studio, a work budget and a stipend and can seek advice from leading art professionals from a wide variety of cultural and creative backgrounds. In addition there is a rich research and production infrastructure, consisting of various technical workshops operated by specialists, a library and a historical and contemporary art collection.
Within the interdisciplinary environment of the Rijksakademie there is complete freedom in research and working methods.
The technical workshops at the Rijksakademie have been a site of innovation and experimentation for decades. Led by specialists who work closely together with the residents, the workshops facilitate the exchange of expertise and create the possibility of interdisciplinary projects involving both new and traditional materials and techniques.
In addition to the technical workshops, the Rijksakademie provides the residents with a number of other practical facilities such as several project spaces, a performance studio, a kitchen and a vegetable garden.
