Greylight Projects residency program is launching an open call for a residency of 2 months (March-April 2021) in Heerlen, The Netherlands. This open call is addressed to artists based in the EUREGIO*. The EUREGIO Maas-Rhein is a crossborder region between the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. The artist needs to be settled in this geographical area to apply for the residency, no matter his/her nationality. The artist needs to be sincerely and actively engaged in his/her practice.

The residency has its focus on supporting the artist’s research rather than the production. Greylight Projects offers a time to take a step back in an environment favorable to think. Greylight Projects has always been interested in art in the public space and wish to continue to do so. Following this idea, the guest artist is welcomed to explore forms or actions that can be or happen in the public domain.
