The Mondriaan Fund organises a permanent guest residency in the Netherlands: the Pompgemaal Den Helder (explanation in Dutch). In addition, varying residencies are offered through annual rounds. Click here for more information about the Temporary Dutch Residencies.
With the Dutch residencies, the Mondriaan Fund aims to offer artists and intermediaries the possibility to make exceptional work in a stimulating environment in the Netherlands, and to come to an exchange of ideas and sources of inspiration. Moreover, it wishes to contribute to greater domestic mobility and visibility of artists. This stems partly from the conviction that not only faraway places may inspire artists, or offer them the possibility to develop or deepen their work: a stay in one’s own country may also yield a lot, both for the artist and for the place or region.
