Museum DIVA is inviting jewellery designers, silver- and goldsmiths to take part in its artist in residence programme at Studio DIVA in Antwerp. In this fully-equipped production atelier residents are given time, space and professional support to research and experiment within their field.
Leading creatives, curators, theoreticians and gallery owners will visit the individual participants at Studio DIVA during their residency, giving them the benefit of feedback on their practice and their sector from a variety of standpoints.
As well as the production atelier, DIVA boasts a specialized library which, along with DIVA’S in-house expertise and, of course, the rich and diverse museum collection, serves as an invaluable source of information and inspiration for residents.
Each resident will have the opportunity to conduct a dialogue with the public in the form of an artist talk and a presentation. This encounter with the public and other professionals from the sector is an important part of the residency.
DIVA will provide proper accommodations in Antwerp and each resident will receive a working budget allocated on a case by case basis in accordance with the project. The residents are responsible for their travel costs and day-to-day living expenses.
Applicants must have successfully completed a relevant course within the field of either jewellery design or silver-and goldsmithing. A shortlist of applicants will be drawn up by a team of experts put together by the museum.
Silver and goldsmiths who wish to stay in the DIVA workshop can apply throughout the year. We review the applications once a year. Applications received before 6 November 2022 will be included in the next selection.
