The Word presents “Dusangneuf–Osangsett”

Dusangneuf Osangsett is a non-profit residency whose central aim is to offer young, emerging Belgian artists a working space for three months in what used to be an old farmhouse in the heart of Brussels.

Initiated by The Word Magazine’s founding editor-in-chief Nicholas Lewis, Dusangneuf Osangsett aims to grow as a place that plays a role in the artist’s position by facilitating contacts with and exposure to art professionals. In addition to this, Dusangneuf Osangsett also provides a limited production budget and curatorial advice as well as the possibility of a final exhibition and the opportunity to be published in The Word Magazine.

Practically,the residency is open to any artist under the age of 30 (born in 1985 or later) working in Belgium today. The house includes two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a shared kitchen and living room as well as studio space. And a 1 250€ production budget as well as a 250€ lodging grant per three-month period is included.

The residency’s next two cycles will take place in February-April 2016 (Cycle #02) and June-August 2016 (Cycle #03). If you wish for your work to be considered for 2016 please send a portfolio of recent works, a letter of motivation as well as a letter of intent outlining how you plan to use the residency to n.lewis@thewordmagazine.com. Deadline for applications is Friday 11th December.
