About ARE

ARE (Artist Residencies Enschede) is founded in 2007 and is an internationally recognized organization. ARE provides an opportunity for visual artists to explore their practice within another community while meeting new people, using new materials, and experiencing life in a new location. ARE emphasizes the importance of meaningful and multi-layered cultural exchange and immersion into another culture.

ARE provides two guest studios for international artists for a period of three months with a closure of a final solo exhibition at one of our local exhibition spaces.The conditions are conducive to creativity and provide our guests with contexts, such as working facilities, connections and audience.
