CBK Rotterdam is looking for three committee members

Deadline: 10 January 2020

Do you want to think along and talk about special projects by Rotterdam visual artists? Then sign up as a committee member of the funding scheme for visual artists Research & Development.

As of February 1, 2020, CBK Rotterdam is looking for three new committee members for this special financing scheme with which Rotterdam artists can deepen and develop their work. We are mainly looking for artists, makers and doers with a visual background, who have an opinion, but can also look generously beyond their own preferences. Of course we think it is important that the committee reflects the diversity in our city.

The Research & Development scheme of CBK Rotterdam focuses on Rotterdam visual artists and makers. As the name implies, the scheme is mainly about stimulating research and development. Research can be either artistic or visual, with development we mean that the project or research can give a strong quality boost to the professional practice of the artist. The scheme has three application rounds per year. The committee's recommendations are submitted to the director of CBK Rotterdam. The activities are reimbursed with a fixed rate for preparation and meetings.
