Artists in residence
We are convinced that good working conditions and a welcoming environment are key conditions for artistic creation. For the audience, the residency working may be the least visible part of what we do, but it is the beating heart of our House for Dance, Image and Sound. Every day, artists from Belgium and abroad work in the Ateliers, Studio, Labozaal and Soetezaal. STUK’s role as a stimulating workplace is a public secret by now: professional studios, a technical and production staff that thinks along with the artist, apartments within walking distance of STUK and an artists’ kitchen as a lively meeting place.
A residency is always tailor-made. Some artists are still doing research, while others are much further in their process or are close to a premiere. A big amount of artists get the rooms at their disposal, a smaller number of them receives extra support. STUK has the know-how for guidance from A to Z: content and dramaturgy advice, productional and technical support, a financial framework, presentation options, an international network and a close collaboration with the KU Leuven for research.
