Artists in Residence (AIR)

EN | NL

Artist community Nieuw en Meer offers a guest studio at their premises. We welcome applications from artists in all disciplines for work periods of max. three months.

Situated within the beautiful surroundings of the Oeverlanden, a park bordering the lake ‘Nieuwe Meer’ in Amsterdam, the guest studio offers the ideal environment for artists in terms of personal reflection and concentration, but as well for exchange and collaborations with artists from our community.

Originally a weapons and ammunition depot for National Defense, the first buildings date from 1918 and were part of the de ‘Stelling van Amsterdam’.
After the military stores fell into disuse the complex was squatted in the summer of ‘88. Nieuw en Meer has been operating completely independent ever since and is currently home to approximately 100 artists, residents and small businesses. The independent position and the unique location is beyond compare within the Amsterdam cultural environment.
The center of Amsterdam is easily accessible by bike or by bus (20 minutes).

In the past years Nieuw en Meer has put emphasis on the sustainability of the community and site, specifically with regard to the maintenance of the buildings and the ecological aspects of the surrounding land and permaculture. In our Cantina and on our front yard occasionally events are organized, ranging from small concerts or theatre performances to exhibitions and workshops.

The Studio

The guest studio is conveniently situated in one of our main warehouse buildings. It measures 48m2 and is equipped with a simple sleeping area, a kitchen, shower, toilet, floor heating and wifi. The rent is € 400,- per month, including the use of household appliances, water and electricity. Couples pay € 500,- per month.

      

Good to know

AIR Nieuw en Meer is run entirely voluntarily, without any additional financial support, with the goal to sustain and enhance the diversity of our community and foster the arts in general. We can not provide day to day support or guidance. Therefore guest artists should come with a healthy DIY mentality and be prepared to make his/her own contacts and arrangements. That said, our community will be very willing to help when needed!
Occasionally during the artists stay there will be held a small party or dinner in order to get in contact with the artists of Nieuw en Meer. At the end of each stay a presentation of the executed project is expected for the residents of Nieuw en Meer. We also will ask you to share some material (photos, texts, etc.) about your work and process for our Facebook-page and archives.
