The residency

Dusangneuf Osangsett is a non-profit artist residency who’s central aim is to offer young, emerging Belgian-based 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 – curators, critics, collectors, gallerists and artists – through a weekly schedule of industry encounters.

Practical details

Open to any artist under the age of 30 (born in 1985 or later) and working in Belgium today, Dusangneuf Osangsett also provides curatorial advice as well as the opportunity to be published in The Word Magazine. The residency’s 2017 cycles will take place from March to May (cycle #04), June to August (cycle #05) and September to November (cycle #06) , with applications closing on 25th November 2016 (see How to apply section below). Finally, the residency includes a ground floor apartment (a room, a bathroom and a kitchen) as well as a separate studio space.

How to apply

If you wish for your work to be considered for the residency’s 2017 cycles, please send a portfolio of recent works, a letter of motivation as well as a note of intent outlining how you plan to use the residency to n.lewis@thewordmagazine.com before 25th November 2016. We promise to get back to you by the end of January 2017 at the very latest.
