A school residency is a unique opportunity for graduate art schools to work on a contemporary print-related project. In the professional printmaking workshop of Frans Masereel Centrum, students can develop and realize a project within the international context of a residency centre. During the school residencies the Frans Masereel Centrum organizes events and print related artist talks for the resident students. Any graduate art school with a master degree program in art can apply for a one- or two-week residency between February 21, 2014 and April 4, 2014. We encourage graduate schools to collaborate and to apply for a joint project. We hope to welcome you in our centre.

Frans Masereel Centrum – Kasterlee, Belgium
Frans Masereel Centrum is a Flemish centre for Graphic Art founded in 1972. It offers residencies and a work place to graphic designers, artists and critics who want to work with intaglio, relief printing, screen print or lithography, or who want to investigate the relationship of graphics with other visual arts. The centre focuses mainly on creation rather than on reproduction. It is a platform for the public, the artist and his work.
