Raum, a public exhibition space in Utrecht, the Netherlands is inviting creators of various kinds to apply for their makers-in-residence program, which will take place in May 2018. They are particularly looking for people who consider their practice on the cutting edge of art and design and who work in the following areas: architecture, visual art, interactive design, audiovisual media, social design and new media, including virtual reality and gaming. The events and installations at Raum and the program for the residency will focus on reinterpreting the living city through art and design in public space. During the residency, artists will work with Raum to create a large, interactive installation that will be temporarily displayed in their public space.
Raum will provide international creators with a residential workplace for up to three months in the Makershuis. They will also provide a stipend of up to 400 Euros per week if you stay for at least two days a week in the residence, as well as a reimbursement of any material and production costs and a shared workshop where you can use tools, machines and equipment. The residency program also involves one-day and/or multi-day events such as festivals, workshops and other activities that the makers are responsible for organizing at Raum.
