RAUM invites applications for its makers-in-residency programme for 2018. RAUM will be based at Berlijnplein in Utrecht, the Netherlands, an open square that is part of a new housing project, Leidsche Rijn. With this open call, they invite local, national and international makers to help discover what Berlijnplein can be. In the period from January to June 2018 they have place for 5 or 6 makers. They are looking for makers interested in crossovers between art, design and/or technology, for instance in the following fields: architecture, visual arts, audio-visual media, social design, new media (virtual reality, gaming, etc.). The selected makers will create one or more (temporary) public works (installations) and/or organise a programme around this installation, inspired by the surroundings of Berlijnplein and the city of the future. The residency will provide accommodation plus workplace (for national and international makers) for 2 – 12 weeks in the RAUM Makershuis (Maker’s Home) at Berlijnplein in Utrecht, a shared studio and a weekly stipend of €300 (solo maker) or €400 (a collective). A reimbursement of costs for materials and production to a maximum sum of €50,000 and an honorarium will also be provided.
Expires: September 17, 2017
