Hotel Mariakapel Residency

Once a year HMK sends out an open call for artists and curators to hand in a proposal for a residency period. A residency typically lasts for 4 or 8 weeks (note: the chapel is only available for up to 4 weeks before an exhibition). During a stay in our guesthouse, residents are invited to develop, execute and present new work in the chapel/exhibition space and/or elsewhere in Hoorn. The Netherlands is a small country that is easy to navigate by train, and we stimulate artists to also use the residency as an opportunity to explore other places, museums and project spaces.

Supporting Cultural and Creative Industries in Europe: Towards Smart, Sustainable and Inclusive Growth

Conference ' Supporting Cultural and Creative Industries in Europe: Towards Smart, Sustainable and Inclusive Growth' is set to take place on 18 February 2015 in Thon Hotel Brussels City Centre with keyspeakers Harry Verwayen, Deputy Director of Europeana amd Sarah de Heusch, Project Officer of Smart-EU. Event DetailsWebsiteRegister to Attend According to the European Commission, cultural and creative industries (CCI) in Europe are estimated to be responsible for over 3% of the EU's gross domestic product and jobs, with significant spill-over effects in other sectors, such as ICT, tourism, healthcare, urban development or trade. In fact, while other industries have been hit by the economic downturn, Europe’s cultural and creative sectors have been growing and providing new jobs. However, although they represent a crucial part for European identity and growth, CCIs remain undervalued and unrecognised, facing important challenges in terms of access to finance and start-up capital. A lack of clear evidence and comparable data in the sectors’ potential, coupled with a shortage of the necessary expertise to assess risks and to adapt the investment models to accommodate a number of challenges, result in financiers’ and banks’ reluctance to invest. 2014 marks the launch of the Open Method of Coordination group on the access to finance for the cultural and creative sectors. The group provides among others, a study mapping existing funding mechanisms (public and private) in EU Member States. This timely international symposium provides an invaluable opportunity to discuss the latest challenges faced by the cultural and creative industries in the EU and the solutions available through funding mechanisms, exchange of best practices and access to cultural works across EU. The symposium will examine how cross-sector and cross-border collaborations can lead to a stronger and more competitive cultural sector, fostering European identity and social cohesion. The Symposium will support the exchange of ideas and encourage delegates to engage in thought-provoking topical debate. Registration Program
