DutchCulture|TransArtists shares knowledge and experience about artist-in-programmes and other international opportunities for creative professionals to temporarily stay and work elsewhere.

We offer you all about facts, use and value of international artist-in-residence opportunities. Our tools and services are developed from the artists' perspective and we aim to make the enormous worldwide residential art labyrinth accessible and usable to artists through our website, workshops, newsletters; research and projects. Our main tool www.transartists.org is the biggest source of information on artist-in-residence opportunities worldwide and includes over 1400 artistic residencies.

Next to helping the artists our goal is to strengthen the artist residency field with AiR Platform NL organizing meetings, offer practical advice to AiR organizers, funds and policymakers, connect initiatives with (international) partners and networks, and establish projects for the mutual exchange of information and expertise. For this we have built a platform for artist-in-residence initiatives and partners to connect, exchange information and experiences, and to establish collaborations and projects in the Netherlands, Flanders and abroad. AiR Platform NL also supports Platform Werkplaatsen a network of technical work spaces for art professionals in The Netherlands and Flanders.
