Open call for applications 2023 | Visual arts and creative writing research residency

If you are in the field of creating, are living outside of Belgium, and you would like to spend some time researching and sharing it in an inspiring house, the Fondation Thalie offers a place of work in an intimate and domestic space in Brussels. The aim of the residency is to support and accompany a reflexive way of thinking and artistic practices that give way to new imaginaries regarding the green transition.

The residency at the Foundation lasts two months. It is a time for research. The resident will benefit from an artistic accompaniment that will allow him/her to detail the projects in progress and also to discover the Belgian creative scene through a program of visits to places and professional meetings.

Open to the public, the restitution will show the result of the research carried out during the residency. It will be designed by the resident with the residency coordinator. The Foundation encourages the residents to allow for times of exchange with the public and professionals, in the form of workshops, readings, etc.
