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.
In general we simply stick to the order of applications on our waiting list. Minor modifications to this order are possible depending on whether the type of workspace and the artist’s expectations match. We endeavour to combine an interesting variety of disciplines in each building, as well as a mixture of experienced artists and those who are just starting out. Sometimes we make a special allocation for a specific building, for example when the spaces are extremely well suited to particular artistic disciplines.
