Verbeke Foundation

Artist-in-residence programme at the Verbeke Foundation began in 2008 and offers both established and emerging artists an exciting opportunity to create work in situ. The foundation provides on-site accommodation, full board, as well as access to the workshop so that artists can fully dedicate themselves to art projects. The residencies are self-directed and are meant for production of new artworks and exhibitions.
