What happens on DOK depends on the decisions of the DOK residents. For this year’s season, DOK is looking for new DOK residents who want to help and contribute their creative maneuvers to shape and create DOK 2017. Together with the residents, DOK offers room for socio-cultural initiatives related to art, sport, ecology and well-being.
DOK explicitly wants to host new ideas, novice collectives and starting projects. DOK is open for suggestions by individuals, neighbourhood residents and artists and for proposals by collectives and organizations as well.
We are willing to host residents whose project(s) take a long period of time and who are therefore looking for a long-lasting place to stay and work. The proposals will be confronted with and judged by the following criteria: accessibility, (artistic) renovation, contributing to a creative urban dynamic, experiment and encounter.
In 2017, DOK focused on the following themes: hospitality, flexibility, superdiversity and mobility. These themes will remain active. This year we’re adding: self-government, common sense and radical.
