Work period for visual arts

  • Who: visual artists working in a variety of media and disciplines are invited to submit project proposals along the lines set out below.
  • Where: FLACC, Genk in Belgium
  • When: Three month period or around 90 days divided over several periods between February 2022 and December 2022
  • Deadline: 1 august 2021

FLACC will merge this year with CIAP into a new organization and will combine the strengths and functions of both partners: FLACC, with their long-standing expertise as a workplace, supporting artistic development, and CIAP, with 45 years’ experience in mediating and exhibiting contemporary visual arts.

Working in synergy with C-mine and other like-minded partners, this new organisation will offer artists space, time, and resources to experiment and develop new projects, but also share them with others. With a broad array of activities — workshops, exhibitions, talks, social gatherings, and many more — it will become a new meeting space for artists, art lovers, neighbours, and broader public. The innovative, creative environment of C-mine and Genk — the city in constant transformation — provides a fertile ground for this new development.

In line with Genk’s past as “station d’artistes”, a beloved refuge for artists, researchers, and thinkers, this unique context offers an opportunity to become an artist colony of the future. The call is open for all visual artists. Due to the diversity of our workshops, the application is open for projects in various media and disciplines. Projects with interest in artistic labour, challenging the notion of a ‘workplace’ or with a focus on experiment are preferable. Development, reflection and experiment are central in our (re)thinking while doing-method.

We believe in minimalizing (time)pressure and physical output and therefore an exhibition is not part of the workplace project. A lecture or other one day event is possible. We are open to short experimental presentations or other forms of interaction.

The work period is at least three-month full time or minimal 90 days, divided in several smaller work periods between February 2022 and December 2022. FLACC offers an accommodation, a workplace, covered travel expenses as well as a small production budget.

Application procedure

Please use our application form in Acrobat Reader and excel sheet (fill in required budget) to apply. The application should include a well-defined project proposal, a thoroughly calculated budget, a preferable time frame and your résumé (text and images and/or video).
