The Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten focuses on developing talent through a two-year residency programme. Artists from around the world have the opportunity to work in optimal conditions to deepen and broaden their artistic practice. During their stay at the Rijksakademie the resident artists are supported by advisors on artistic, technical and theoretical levels. In addition to permanent advisors the Rijksakademie also uses the Guest Advisors Circle. This additional body is set up to focus attention on current developments in the arts and to address the interests and concerns of the individual artists. Ammodo supports the Guest Advisors Circle and by so doing contributes to the development of contemporary visual artists.
