Hamburger Community of Art

Imagine a community that offers free studio spaces, collaborations with different artists, exhibitions, workshops, lectures, personal development and community building, development of your work, expansion of your network, growing interaction with the audience, artistic guidance, a monthly fee, hamburgers and last but not least a salad of fun!

Is it you we’re looking for?

With the HCA, Roodkapje provides a yearlong program for emerging artists/ artist collectives (residents) including events, training and workshops open to a variety of audience.

With the HCA, we aim to equip our residents as well as the audience with skills to be resourceful and self-sufficient in assembling diverse voices. The HCA is based on the principles of experimentation, collaboration and developing new artistic practices. The HCA will develop, produce and host cultural events, social activities and projects open to all audiences (the public).

The essential questions we need to ask ourselves: What can artists learn from each other? How can young artists stimulate their development collectively? What can society learn from artists and vice versa?
