The Jan van Eyck Academie (Maastricht, the Netherlands) is an international, multidisciplinary post-academy for artistic talent development that furthers experiment, research, production, collaboration and exchange. The Jan van Eyck offers residencies to artists, designers—ranging from graphic, fashion, to food and social design—, writers, curators and architects from all over the world. Every participant is provided with the time, space and expertise needed to develop their artistic practice in depth. The institute is committed to exploring the agency, roles, and civic significance of art, design and other creative practices in relation to the climate crisis, environmental breakdown, and their manifold effects. This institutional focus aims at creating a common-ground that embraces a diversity of practices and allows for a multitude of voices.
The academy is situated right in the historical centre of Maastricht, near the music academy, the art academy, the drama academy and the university. It is also near the border of Germany and Belgium, cities such as Cologne (110 km), Düsseldorf (110 km), Brussels (120 km), Paris (400 km), London (490 km) and Berlin (680 km) are relatively close by.
