Artist in Residence

The AiR Tilburg Residency programme is geared towards artists who seek advancement, development or reorientation in their artistic practice. Artists are offered time and space for production or for research such as recalibrating or reprioritising urgency. The majority of residents at SEA Foundation are selected from Open Calls. Some of the residents are invited others are nominated from within our network.

Residency programme

Production: The artist studio is not fixed to disciplines. It is well-equipped with hand tools and materials in support of the artistic process. When needed there are specialized, discipline-driven workshops in the immediate vicinity, where support can be sought for a specific production.

Research-based: With the artistic practice at heart, the research process is nourished in dialogue with the input of theoretical and practical expertise from SEA Foundation team members. Research is complemented with the encouragement to write about the artistic process to deepen reflective skills.

Flexible residency: Artists may stay for a short flexible exploratory residency for up to one month. In these flexible residencies, we facilitate network building.

AiR-Plugin: In addition to space and time, artists can be offered a development trajectory for up to two years in which we follow the artistic processes with great care. In support of practice development, we facilitate input such as studio visits, mentoring and peer learning.

Grants and Stipends

Depending on the available funds, and within the scope of the Open Call for on-site residencies, SEA foundation offers some fully-funded and some stipended residencies to applicants. These awards may include all or one of the following. Free live/work studio accommodation, mentoring, weekly stipend, travel costs, production costs incl. technical assistance. In addition, SEA Foundation may cover the costs of a public event, exhibition or the production of an artist’s book. Preceding the residency, SEA Foundation assists with finding funds to cover remaining costs.
