Production costs and artist fees for the production of landscape art
Our association offers artists a natural space to realize their landscape art. It supports the production costs and grants a subsidy to support the artist in the creative phase. This funding type can be combined with the use of the Hermitage.
Free-living and working in the Hermitage
The Hermitage is a small house consisting of one room with a kitchen and a bathroom. It can be a refuge so they can indulge themselves in creating their art. The Hermitage is on a 6000 square meter property, between fields, and with a view of the horizon. When the weather is nice, you can admire the sunset in the evening.
The Art Hermitage is made available to various artists free of charge for six months a year for living and working purposes. In this funding, the artists will get no financial support.
Framework of funding
Material from the landscape - art in the landscape
We promote land art, sculptures, and installations in nature that are near related to nature and the landscape. The objects can be permanent or ephemeral. The artwork can stay on-site or be taken away. The association is happy if one or the other item remains.
Artists from the visual, musical, and performing arts can use the Art Hermitage as a refuge. The results remain with the artist. The association is happy about positive feedback.
Anyone who wants to live out their artistic streak can apply - regardless of age and education.
The application should have the following scope:
- Application for the Art Hermitage and/or art funding
- Description of the art (1 page)
