A summer residency provides an opportunity to do a project about the Frisan landscape and/or to engage with the village community.
Friesland or Frisia is a province in the north of the European country the Netherlands. Friesland “Frisia” extends from the north-western Netherlands across north-western Germany to the border of Denmark (Vidå). We invite artists to react to the Frisian (cultural) landscape and heritage through their own artistic practice. With this invitation SYB aims to generate a dialogue among Dutch and international cultural practitioners or organisations and to open up for a new and larger public(s).
Two applicants will be selected for a six weeks residency at SYB between June 1st and August 31st, 2016. A residency includes 24-hour access to a furnished apartment and studio space, organizational guidance, artistic feedback, publicity, and a presentation at SYB.
