in the autumn of 2015, the museum Dhondt-Dhaenens started with a residency program in the region of lys river. Two notable buildings fulfill this assignment: The wunderkammer Residence and the House Van Wassenhove.

Residents are selected based on a proposal for a research project in progress or in need of reflection. The residence needs to be a place of dialogue and encounter, an opportunity for thinkers and creators to connect and to meet. House Van Wassenhove can also be a place where artists and small collectives can develop projects together.

There is no fixed time period, a residency can last 2 days or 3 months, depending the needs and intentions of the resident and the availability of the house. Some of the residences will be filled and followed in close cooperation with the Faculties of Architecture and Arts Science of the University of Ghent.

Project proposals for residencies should be sent to
