Short info about EHBK/OT301
OT301 is a artist organization in Amsterdam, exploring the possibilities to open up our main building by hosting a residency program in one of our studios. OT301 is located in the former film academy next to the Vondelpark at Overtoom 301. It was originally squatted in 1999, then bought by association in 2007. There is a venue, a cinema, a gallery, a culture-kitchen, a recording studio, a theater-studio and a body-lab as well as people living and working in their studios.

Application Guidelines and Criteria
Applicants must have an interest to participate in the collective. Writers, researchers, organizers and artists are invited to integrate in the organization while focusing on a connection, a theme, problem or case related to OT301. Applications include a project, plan or approach to integrate into the building and organization with additional documentation like text, image and cv.
A residency period lasts a maximum of three months. The committee People and Spaces will carefully review the applications. All applicants will be notified of the outcome.

With this residency program OT301 aims to
* Use the residency program as a social experiment to gather more external and objective knowledge about the ins and outs of the organization.
* Open up our building even more to an (inter)national network of socially and politically engaged people
* Develop a continually evolving organic residency module for temporary participation in our collective organization: development is shaped by the residents.

OT301 prefers the residency to be mutual beneficial to all involved. Therefore each applicant is asked to explain explicitly why he or she is interested in renting a space in the building. We are looking for people that take their stay serious and that are ready to integrate and participate in the collective structure of the EHBK association.
