A school residency is a unique opportunity for universities to work on a contemporary print-related project. In a professional printmaking workshop and within the international context of a residency space students can develop and realize thair project under supervision of their teacher. We encourage schools to collaborate and work on a collaborative project.
During the school residencies the centre organizes printrelated Artist Talks to contextualize the history, concept and other aspect of contemporary graphic art.
Frans Masereel Centrum makes its selection of schools based on the content and relevancy within contemporary print. When the selection has been made Frans Masereel Centrum will contact and inform each applicant with the results. This before or on June 7.
If your school was selected, Frans Masereel Centrum will ask you to finalize your application with additional information:
- names of the participating students
- short schedule of the residency time at Frans Masereel Centrum
- copy of the identity cards/passports of students and professors
- proof that the students are insured during their residency while at Frans Masereel Centrum
When the selection is made and the residencies are known, universities will also be informed on which other schools will also be in residency. We encourage schools to exchange their information and ideas in preparation for time at the centre. During the residency all residents are required to follow studio- and house guidelines. They can be found in the information brochure that will be sent to the participating schools.
Artistic out-of-the-box mentalities and multidisciplinary approaches are encouraged.
Frans Masereel Centrum is an open-minded institution that wants to reflect society as a whole and does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, creed, sexual orientation or gender expression.
We hope to welcome you soon!
