Past Art Klub Residencies
The Art Klub offers residencies to artists of all disciplines. We request a minimum of 3 weeks, with a maximum of up to 3 months at a time. We are accepting proposals detailing the artist's background and goals for time spent at the Art Klub, and we encourage community outreach while in residency. Time frames and residency fees are negotiable based on needs of artist in terms of space and support. Communication is key!

Artist-in-Residence March 2018: Marije Nie
Tap dancer | Choreographer | Connector
This year I have received an artist grant from the Amsterdam Art Fund which enables me to travel and exchange with other artists. In the course of this grant I have lived, worked and studied in Denmark, Poland and Portugal, and am now planning trips to Bali and Cuba. And now I am coming to New Orleans!
While in New Orleans I will be setting up artist exchanges with local individuals that work in theatre, dance and music. The exchanges can be artistic, but can also be an exchange of thoughts and experiences (artistic, social and economical experiences) around art projects connected to social change, community building or personal artistic biography.
I will be screening my short films and combining that with a tap performance including local musicians / dancers. I am interested to work with any musicians, but especially in those that find a distinctly personal approach to their work.
