Work Retreat

Besides the residency programme, from November – March, NAC offers possibility to spend 2–4 weeks at NAC for a work retreat. Work retreats are meant for those seeking a calm and focussed work environment to focus on developing new work, research, studying, or PhD writing. Rooms are assigned based on availability. As there are more requests than available rooms, access is granted via an application process with focus on giving space to professionals actively working in the field of culture and academia.

Applications for work retreats start as from September and are assessed continuously. Applications are reviewed upon submission by NAC team. Response given within 5 days to 2 weeks. Fill out the work retreat form here.
