Artist in residency

OT301 Residency (3 months)

We have temporarily suspended our artist residency program until further notice. We will resume our call for artists when possible and make an announcement when applications will be open again. Please follow our website and social media for any upcoming news, other ways to get involved, and our public program. Thank you for your kind attention and understanding.

The OT301 is an artist organization/collective located in the old Film Academy building of Amsterdam, that was squatted in 1999. 
In 2013 the residency program was founded in order with the aim to:
-Use the residency program as a social experiment to gather more external and objective knowledge about the ins and outs of the organization.
-Open up our building even more to an (inter)national network of socially and politically engaged people.
-Develop a continually evolving organic residency module for temporary participation in our collective organisation: development is shaped by the residents.

The OT301 residency space is located on the 2nd floor of the main working building.
The space is modestly equipped for living/working needs with a kitchen, shower and toilet. 
The total size of the room is 42 m2.
Residency period: 3 months (maximum), with at least one presentation in the building - participation in discussions and the program of OT301.
Costs: The rental fee of the studio per month is € 450,- for one person and € 500,- for two people.
Deadline: we don't work with a deadline. You can apply all year long. Let us know your preferred time-frame.

Important to note: The building can be noisy sometimes. Our culture kitchen, cinema, concert space and gallery are open to public almost every day.

Application Guidelines and Criteria
OT301 prefers the residency to be mutual beneficial to all involved. Therefore each applicant is asked to explain explicitly why he or she is interested in renting a space in our building. We are looking for people that take their stay seriously and that are ready to integrate and participate in the collective structure of the OT301 association. 
Working on your own projects while looking for a connection, a theme, problem or case related to OT301.
Please incluse a project plan on how to integrate and participate in your applications.

#26 - Jennifer Kumer

Immerse yourself in the world of emotional connectivity through an unique interactive exhibition of the Empathic Wisdom Cards.
Explore the rich inner journey of self-discovery, authentic relating, and creative expressions.

4Bid Gallery presents Jennifer Kumer: Empathic Wisdom, the first solo exhibition of the Hong Kong visual artist, design activist and creative coach who moved from the U.S to the Netherlands almost 2 years ago. The exhibition showcases the collection of original artwork from the Empathic Wisdom Cards, a genius card deck designed to inspire emotional awareness and authentic connection between people in everyday living.

The exhibition features a highly-interactive program facilitated by the artist and volunteers.
Come to the opening night with friends to experience two of the playful embodiment group games, Emotional Theater & Co-Creative Storytelling! 
You can also come during any other gallery opening hours to facilitate games & practices with yourself or with a friend (or better, pair up with a stranger!) 

The Empathic Wisdom Cards was successfully funded on Kickstarter in June and was completed during the 3 month-artist residency at OT301. 
The project was birthed from the artist’s desperate need to make sense of her own self-development journey after a spiritual burning-out. Her work have since found its way to workshops in festivals & retreats and the private practices of various facilitators and coaches from all walks of life.
