Collective Residency

Period
October-November 2022
Duration
1 or 2 weeks

Applying for a Collective Residency in the Fall of 2022 will be possible early 2022.

The Collective Residency is a unique opportunity for any kind of collective or duo to develop a contemporary, print-related project – both individually or collaboratively – or work together on common goals/themes. In a professional printmaking workshop and within the context of an international residency and exhibition space, participants are invited to experiment and realize their projects in a self-directed way or under the supervision of their tutors.

Please note: contrary to our six-week Artist Residency program, the Collective Residency program does not include educational training from our staff, nor masterclasses. Prior knowledge of printmaking techniques is thus required or should be provided sufficiently by each applying group (e.g. by means of tutors/technician). Our team will offer of course basic technical support.

Each Collective Residency starts on Friday (arrival between 2 and 4 pm), it can run for one or two weeks, and lasts until Friday (11 am) – except mentioned otherwise. On Monday evenings, the Frans Masereel Centrum organizes print-related talks by a contemporary artist. Thursday afternoons are dedicated to prepare the presentation of the residency results.
