Important information

what is the objective of this call

Since 2017, by means of open calls, the Creative Industries Fund NL, the Netherlands Film Fund, the Performing Arts Fund, the Mondriaan Fund and the Dutch Foundation for Literature have jointly offered a residency at the Van Doesburghuis in Meudon, Paris, where makers can further develop their artistic practice.

In the studio house that Theo van Doesburg designed for himself and his wife Nelly in the late 1920s, makers and intermediaries can carry out research, develop ideas or create new work in the fields of film, design and digital culture.

This call offers one working period of four months. In line with Theo and Nelly’s interdisciplinary practice and multifaceted artistic expression, a collaboration with an applicant from another discipline is also possible.

who is this open call intended for

Makers and intermediaries in the disciplines of design, architecture and digital culture can submit a proposal. It is possible to apply as an individual applicant or as a duo (two makers, or a maker and an observer, who make work together on a structural basis). Partnerships can be considered as a duo (for this occasion), if they submit a joint plan for the working period that leads to a single result. At least one maker or observer in the duo works within the design architecture and/or digital culture sector.
Please note: when applying as a duo or partnership, both must complete a form separately.
