Who is eligible

Visual artists, curators, art critics and art observers who wish to deepen their professional practices and expand their networks are eligible to apply for a working period in the Netherlands or another country at one of the recognized residencies offered by the Mondriaan Fund.

The Mondriaan Fund offers Residency grants to stimulate the enrichment of the artistic development and practice of visual artists, curators and art observers abroad or in a new environment, through a period at a Dutch or international studio designated by the Fund. This also allows for the exploration of new Dutch and international contacts and markets, supporting the creation of work that can make a valuable contribution to contemporary visual art and/or cultural heritage in the Netherlands.

What it covers

The grant is intended for travel, accommodation and material costs. The costs of living space, working space and the support that residents receive are paid directly to the residency by the Mondriaan Fund.

How much

Grant amounts vary depending on the location and duration of the residency. Please check the possibilities below.

When and where to apply

The deadline for applying for a Residency varies. View the different dates below.

You must first request an account on the Mondriaan Fund website, which you need to submit any grant application. Keep in mind that following the deadline date, a 3 month period is required for processing the applications. No grants are awarded retrospectively.

There are 2 categories of residencies: residencies in the Netherlands and residencies in other countries. For each of these two categories, you may apply for no more than 2 residencies. This means that if you wish to apply for residencies in both categories at the same time, you may apply for two in the Netherlands and two in other countries. A separate application must be submitted for each residency you apply for.

This explanation is based on the Mondriaan Fund Residency Grant regulations.

Terms and conditions

Some residencies can only be applied for by visual artists or only by curators / observers, others by both. At the bottom of this page, you can read specific information about the characteristics of each residency, the conditions, the workperiod, etc

Assessing the applications

Submitted applications and associated PDF documents are first checked by Mondriaan Fund staff to ensure they are complete. They are then presented to a committee that advises onawarding Residency Grants. In assessing your application, the advisory committee follows an intital elimination procedure:

  • If the majority if the committee give a negative assessment of the artistic performance, a negative advisory is given.
  • In the second round of voting, the committee assesses the artistic performance and other criteria mentioned above. If the majority of the committee give a negative assessment, a negative advisory is given.

A Mondriaan Fund Residency Grant can only be awarded if the committee gives a positive advisory. It is unfortunately not possible to award grants to all applications that receive positive advisories, hence the advisory committee prioritises the positive advisories following the final round of voting. A meeting between the management of the particular residency and the proposed candidate may also be part of the selection procedure. If the applications fail to produce a suitable candidate, the advisory committee can propose candidates themselves.
