WOW offers artists from various disciplines an inspiring environment where they can live, work, meet and exchange ideas with visitors and other artists. Artists can develop professionally, benefitting from the experience and creativity of other artists, and are invited to add to WOW’s creative and dynamic atmosphere.


Fifty studios for Artists in Residence are situated on the first and second floors and vary in size from 24m2 to 36m2. With a height of 3.80m the studios can also be used as a combined living and work space. There are centrally located shared kitchens and bathroom and toilet facilities.


Artists who have recently graduated or are about to graduate from one of Amsterdam’s art institutes (like AMFI, the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, the Sandberg Instituut, the Filmacademie, the Conservatorium and the various other departments of the Amsterdam School for the Arts) may apply for a temporary residency with a maximum duration of two years.

Tenants must meet the conditions imposed by the CAWA, the Amsterdam Committee for Studios and Studio Housing. Read more about the CAWA here. Click here for their application form.


Please note that we prioritise applicants from the art institutions of Amsterdam. If you are interested in a residency and meet the requirements, please email
