The AiR Tilburg Netherlands international residency program offers a unique environment, providing time and space for research, experimentation and professional advancement. Every year, the residency program facilitates 6 – 10 professional artists, curators and art writers in all stages of their careers. The residency can be aimed at research as well as production.
Residents reap the benefits of bespoke mentoring and good facilities. A fantastic studio/living space of your own, complemented by private bathroom facilities, a shared fully functional kitchen and communal dining. The studios are secure, accessible 24/7 and set in a private lush garden. They have fabulous natural light conditions and offer seclusion and tranquillity.
Having an experimental quality, SEA Foundation’s residency program includes bespoke mentoring on a ‘mix and match’ basis to suit individual requirements. Residents receive dedicated support from mentors and trainers. Each step and each stage of discovery could be shared and reflected upon. Residents are encouraged to address frontiers, let go of expectations and make discoveries, as these are the key elements of artistic development.
Up to 3 months according to the needs and necessity of the proposed project. The residency is open all year but no new residents arrive in August and December.
Operating actively in an (inter)national network and within the scope of SEA Foundation’s multifaceted identity, lay interesting networking opportunities. For example with renowned institutions, small initiatives, and professional practitioners. AiR Tilburg Netherlands functions as a meeting place for dialogue and exchange. Residents are encouraged to join SEA Foundation activities and they are invited to connect and explore.
