The Artist-in-Residence Fellowship in Rome is meant for artists (painters, sculptors, architects, photographers, writers, poets, filmmakers, choreographers, couturiers, actors and so on) who would like to spend three months at the KNIR in Rome working on a project that contributes to cross-fertilisation between the arts and science. The programme was established jointly by the Royal Netherlands Institute in Rome (KNIR) and the Society of Arts.


The Artist-in-Residence is expected to participate actively in the life of the KNIR’s academic community and to promote cross-fertilisation between the arts and science within that community.

The Artist-in-Residence receives a monthly stipend for a three-month period (maximum) and temporary housing in one of the KNIR’s guest flats.
