Open call Artist-in-residence





Entry Fee:

Sunday, April 25, 2021



ROOT is an engaged residency for interdisciplinary makers and researchers, located between Tilburg and Den Bosch. Surrounded by nature, here you find an ideal base to develop socially engaged projects.


For whom

At ROOT social commitment is central: makers who want to commit to social issues and who want to create a new way of looking, thinking and behaving with their work. We select a diverse group of makers who want to contribute to this positive, dynamic place. Makers come from e.g. performing arts, visual arts, or are musicians, technical artists, activists, scientists, etc.



In the residency you have a workspace, depending on your needs, and you stay in a characteristic villa from 1912 on the edge of the park. You determine your own process and we support you by peer-to-peer campfire sessions, a folk cuisine and open studio moments. This offers the opportunity to show work in progress and to start conversations with (other) makers. At the end of your residency, you take part in an event, where the audience can meet you and your work process. 



The residency is located at Landpark Assisië: a terrain with forests, meadows, water and parks, where care is provided to people with intellectual disabilities. Nature reserves Loonse & Drunense Duinen, Campina and Leemkuilen are within walking and cycling distance.


ROOT offers a place to 4 residents from 1st May ‘21 to 1st October ‘21. A shorter period is possible in consultation.


Please send us a motivation letter or video and a glimpse into your work (via online materials, portfolio, cv…) before 25th April ‘21. We contact you as soon as possible.


350 to 400 euro/month, depending on the size of your living and work place.

The costs for the residency are inclusive private and communal living areas, a studio, a big garden with a campfire place and service charges for internet, gas, water and light. 

Every participant can bring one family member or partner for a small compensation.
