About WEP
Foundation WEP is an exhibition space, studio building and artist-in-residence for contemporary art close to the city center of Groningen. WEP is a non-profit organization that aims to support and assist artists in the development of their practice and the production of new work and promote exchanges between local, national and international artists, cultural institutions and the public.

WEP places the artist at the centre of its activities. The public program of multimedia presentations aims to challenge perceptions of what constitutes contemporary art, and bring the audience closer to the practice that motivates it.

Summer Residency
They are offering one residency a year: the WEP summer residency that concludes with a public presentation of the working period on the last weekend.

Our project space is tranquil and spacious working environment and offers a unique space for reflection, experimentation and production.

WEP is run by a small team. They offer basic support during the residency and are responsible for promotional activity in relation to the residency. In addition to offering a place to work for the duration of the residency, we offer a living space in collaboration with the studio and housing complex the Biotoop link in the close by village of Haren.

Working space and accommodation are arranged by WEP, but other expenses (such as travel expenses and living expenses) are not paid by WEP.
