In between seasons het resort brings you: midseason.
A 6-week program focused on 6 starting artists who will develop their artistic practice. During midseason, you will attend weekly meetings and meet up with former residents and other art professionals. You will go on field trips, do research and work towards a group exhibition.
This year's weekender exhibition will be on an old ship in the city center of Groningen. So be prepared to dive into the Groninger nautical history. You will dive into the archives of Museum aan der Aa (former: Noordelijk Scheepvaartmuseum / Northern nautical museum), Groninger Archieven and Groninger Museum and create new work inspired by these archives.

WHAT YOU’LL GET
A 6-week program created around the needs of starting artists. A 6-week residency in Groningen, a group show on a beautiful ship, an artist fee, fee for material and travel costs, new contacts, coaching by former resort artists and SYB CIRCLES members (Kunsthuis SYB). And a whole lot of reflection plus… of course your own wearable resort souvenir and your portrait in our hall of forever fame.
WHAT WE ASK
Your time and full attention - it will be a very packed time consuming program as you create new work and do research. If you join the midseason program we suggest you keep November 9 - December 20 free from other projects.
Be open - You will participate in a group show and the program will be a group process. So you have to be open to work together and reflect on each other.
Create new work - you’ll create a new site-specific work on a ship and present your research at the Der Aa-Kerk.
