Het Lage Noorden, Marrum

deadline: 01.11.2021

For who: artists with a focus on visual and performance arts.
What: 2 working periods of 3 months
When: March 1st – May 31st and September 1st –  November 30th 2022

The artist-in-residence Het Lage Noorden in Friesland is a unique place to create, research, experiment and produce. It is surrounded by the Dutch mudflats and space for rest and research. Het Lage Noorden is located in the middle of the Frisian nature next to the mudflats and has a large site with beautiful studios, also for large-scale work, a library and a presentation room. By making space, materials, tools and advice available, the artist is facilitated in the production of large works of art and installations.

Het Lage Noorden brings art and accommodation together – through a campsite, B&B and cabins. It is a place where artists, local residents, cyclists, walkers, campers and other guests come together. This residency is truly part of its environment and offers visitors the opportunity to get acquainted with the art-making process. Residents can stay in the B&B guesthouse, on the campsite or in a cabin, to be agreed in consultation.

Every guest in the AIR process makes a project proposal. Based on this, additional work and materials can be estimated. The period ends with an evaluation. Part of the evaluation is an explanation by the artist of the process and/or the work, according to a format to be determined in consultation for the archive of the artist and of Het Lage Noorden.

  • For Whom

    This residency is open to all forms of visual and performance arts, as long as the making process is central.

  • Working Periods

    There are 2 working periods, each lasting 3 months:

    March 1st – May 31st 2022
    September 1st – November 30th 2022

    The preference for the period of stay must be indicated in the application form. Every effort will be made to assign the preferred period as much as possible. This working period is subject to change and depends on how the coronavirus develops.

  • Application

    The deadline for submitting an application for a working period is: November 1, 2021, before 5:00 PM.

    Before submitting an application, read the explanation Residency for the terms and conditions, assessment and application procedure. On that page you will also get to the application form. Also read the general terms that apply to contributions from the Mondriaan Fund.

    A longlist is drawn up on the basis of the committee’s recommendations. The selected applicants will be invited for an interview with Het Lage Noorden. The final selection is determined on the basis of the interview. If it appears that no suitable candidate can be selected from the applications, the advisory committee can nominate candidates itself.

  • How Much

    The Mondriaan Fund provides a grant of €2,000 per month for travel, material and accommodation costs. This amount is intended for 1 person. In addition, a personal contribution of at least 10%, or €200 per month, is expected from the chosen resident. The applicant must indicate how the personal contribution is financed. This can be your own investment, but also a contribution from third parties, an interest-free loan from the Kwadraat Fund or a contribution through crowdfunding.

    If a duo or partnership is selected for a guest studio, the amount for the guest studio will be increased by an amount for additional travel costs and a proportional amount for the accommodation costs for the other applicant. The rent of the studio/accommodation, supervision and presentation are not included in the subsidy amount and are paid for by the Mondriaan Fund.
