  • In 2003 we wrote the first version of our present allocation policy with the aim of allocating studios objectively and transparently. This policy was updated in 2015.

    We must say straight away that the allocation of a workspace is always specific to each applicant. In addition, an allocation policy is never finished. It evolves with the organisation and available studio spaces.

When a studio is assigned, the artist can use the space for a period of 5 years after the initial approval by the allocation committee. After this period, a dossier must be submitted again in order to request a second term of 5 years. Extension is in theory possible without restrictions.

When assessing the new application, the following elements are important: a qualitative artistic production, the evolution of the work during the past 5 years, exhibitions and other forms of communication with an audience, ambition and positioning of the artist, professionalism and entrepreneurship and the frequency of studio use.

If an artist leaves his studio on his own initiative before the expiry of the 5-year period, his application remains valid for 2 years from the date of initial approval by the allocation committee.
