2. School residency

A school residency is a unique opportunity for art students to collectively work on a contemporary print project. Within an international context and in a well equipped printmaking workshop, the students work on their artistic project guided by their teacher. 
Frans Masereel Centre stimulates the graphical experiment in the workshop. For inspiration, it organizes weekly print related artist talks.


This residency program is organised only for students in their master or postgraduate year. Every art school with a master or postgraduate programme can apply for a residency period of one week or two weeks. Also students with no prior graphic technical knolledge are welcome as well, as long as the school provides a teacher with the necessary background to help the students.

Applications for school residencies in 2018 are open for submission. School residencies will take place from september 28th up to November 30th, 2018. Deadline submission is May 31, 2018.


3. Artistic project description

Selection criterion

Frans Masereel Centre is a graphic laboratory in which the possibilities of graphic applications are being researched, widened and reformulated. The focus is on creation and experimentation in the workshop. The project that schools wish to realize during the residency reflects this artistic view on graphic techniques. 
In the project description, the school clearly states what value the graphic techniques add to the project and how the medium fits into its artistic concept. The project is contemporary relevant.

Formulate a short content description of the project the school wishes to realize during its residency. If you have chosen a collective project with another school, please describe how the collaboration happens specifically.
