Residency program for performance artists


VONK is looking for:

VONK is looking for artists who work on the border between visual art and performance. Are you a visual artist making the crossover to the performing arts or are you a performance artist who works very visual? And are you looking for a workspace? Then this open call might interest you.​

VONK offers:​

  • Free workspace for development, experiment and creation, which ultimately leads to a public presentation.
  • A compensation for travel costs and (if needed) a place to sleep.
  • Support that can range from broadening your network to artistic reflection, input from a dramaturg and/or financial support.

Once the artist has a finished product, we can look at different possibilities to present it. This within the VONK infrastructure, in the public space, or at one of the VONK partners.

Location: The place of residency is VONK_hasselt, Kempische Kaai 85, 3500 Hasselt.
