Intro
Museum DIVA is inviting silver- and goldsmiths to take part in its artist-in-residence programme in the workshop of the museum. 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 during their residency, giving them the benefit of feedback on their practice.

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 of their work. This encounter with the public and other professionals is an important part of the residency.

Practical arrangements
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.

Selection?
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. The jury for the next round consists of Chequita Nahar (Head of programme Fine Art, Design, Maastricht Institute of Arts, Zuyd Hogeschool, jewelry designer), Hilde De Decker (jewelry designer), Elise Taillieu (CEO Wouters & Hendrix), Eva Olde Monnikhof director DIVA) and Catherine Regout (curator DIVA).

When?
Jewellery designers or silver- and goldsmiths can apply throughout the year. We review the applications twice a year, in April and November. Applications received before 30 November 2021 will be included in the next selection.

Interested in applying?
Candidates should submit a project proposal and outline what they plan to achieve during their residency. Priority will be given to projects that contribute to the participant’s development.
