International cultural professionals working in the Netherlands: share your experience

4 February 2019
Are you an international artist working in the Netherlands? Please fill in our survey and share your experiences in living and working here.

As an artist or cultural professional working in the Netherlands, did you encounter difficulties such as finding adequate housing and work opportunities or applying for a residence permit? DutchCulture, together with Gemeente Amsterdam, are conducting a research in order to get a clear picture of the barriers and obstacles faced by international artists and cultural professionals in the Netherlands.

In order to get a better impression of the current barriers experienced by international artists and cultural professionals working in the Netherlands, the City of Amsterdam and DutchCulture, centre for international cultural cooperation, have decided to conduct a research among  the international artistic community. With this survey we hope to identify the most common and problematic barriers experienced by international artists and creatives in The Netherlands.

The results of this survey are intended to spark a conversation between peers (artists and creatives), stakeholders (cultural organisations, expat centres, universities and artist residencies) and policy makers (both national and local governments and funding bodies) to formulate possible actions to relieve the barriers experienced by international artists artists and cultural professionals.
