De Ateliers is open for applications for the next working period, starting January 2024. De Ateliers is an artists’ institute open to artists at the beginning of their professional career. It offers a twenty-month studio and tutoring programme that is best tailored to the needs of highly motivated artists who wish to strengthen their artistic foundation, develop their ideas and deepen their practice in a focused, critical environment among peers from around the globe. The programme is centred around weekly individual studio conversations, with regular and guest tutors, most of whom are practicing artists. The aim is to create a better understanding of one’s artistic position and process by offering a multiplicity of perspectives and critical feedback.

The individual and intensive nature of the De Ateliers programme, with weekly one-on-one studio visits by tutors on Tuesdays, demands a highly motivated and committed attitude. For those artists who are actively looking for regular critical feedback and who have an open attitude towards a wide range of artistic voices and opinions, the generous time and space the De Ateliers programme offers, can produce a life changing experience.

De Ateliers is a small scale institution, with twenty spacious studios housed in a monumental studio building in the center of Amsterdam. In addition to the individual studio spaces, it offers access to basic workshop facilities, a library, public programs and connections to relevant art and knowledge institutions in Amsterdam and beyond. To facilitate and support their stay in Amsterdam, participants at De Ateliers are able to get access to shared housing and stipends to cover basic costs of living.

Although there is no formal age limit for applications, our experience is that most applicants are under 28 years old. Command over English is required. A completed art education is not required. All applications are reviewed by the artist tutor team of De Ateliers, and assessed along criteria like potential for development, artistic urgency, and an interest in the visual/material/formal possibilities of art practice in a studio context.

The deadline to apply for the working period 2024–25 (January 1, 2024–August 31, 2025) is March 1, 2023, 11:59pm CET. The selection procedure takes approximately four months. Applicants are informed on the status of their application by email.

Applications can only be submitted through our application form. More information about De Ateliers, the programme and the application can be found on our website. Deadline for applications is March 1, 2023, 11:59pm CET.
