Appel à projets

The residencies at Q-O2 offer time and space for artistic research, reflection, and creation in the field of experimental music and sound art. For each residency, we provide the necessary technical equipment, a travel allowance of 120€ maximum, and accommodation in the Q-O2 apartment for international residents. Residencies are usually between three and six weeks long.

Upon completion of the residency, a presentation to an audience can be arranged if desired but is not expected of the artist. What we require are some traces of the residency, whether these are left in word, image and/or audio form. If you are interested to get involved with the city and its inhabitants, we are here to help to make such meetings possible.


Q-O2 will host 14 residencies in 2024 of which 7 for international and 7 for local artists (living in Belgium) working with, on or around sound. We are open for artists, art workers and theorists who wish to work on a research-oriented project (please mind that we do not organise residencies directed at production).

We offer a work studio and material, a creative and communicative environment, and the possibility to present your work to a public and/or propose a workshop. For international residents we provide accommodation in a shared apartment and a contribution to travel expenses of max 150€. A small subsistence budget will be reserved for all artists who do not come with other funding. Residencies are usually four weeks long.

To apply, please send a concise project proposal of not more than one page and a link to your website or other secondary information by September 15th to, stating “Residency24” as subject. Please also provide information about your place of residency and specify your interest in Brussels as a working environment.
