Home of two renowned postgraduate institutes, the Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten and De Ateliers, both engage in a brand-new partnership, offering outstanding opportunities for talented artists to develop their work on the highest level. We offer inspiring studio visits by prominent artists and art professionals, as well as technical assistance by acclaimed specialists, within a stimulating, international working environment.  Together, the Rijksakademie and De Ateliers offer 60 studios on two locations (within a fifteen-minute walking distance). Every year, 30 studios will become available. A residency at the Rijksakademie/Ateliers lasts one year and can be extended an additional year.
