Are you an artist, designer, creative of any kind looking for a room in Amsterdam? Do you like living with other people? Are you also interested in getting a studio space at ACTA? Then keep on reading! This is a room at ACTA in our living group with a move in date of Oct 1st 2022. This form gives many of the important details of our home & workspace. It is also so that we can get to know you a bit.  This offer is also open to students as well.

We offer a room with registration as well as the possibility to rent a workspace in Broedplaats ACTA.

There is a possibility of a shared studio in the Broedplaats. It is shared with two other artists.
It is not required to rent the studio to get the room. It is also possible to wait for a different studio space.

Currently the managers of the living spaces are working to extend their contract over their part of the building. They can only offer you a living contract of 1 year. However, if they get their extension then it is very likely that your living contract will also be extended.

We are a living group of 11 artists looking for a person to become of our woongroep and the broedplaats. We are photographers, writers, music producers, theatermakers, actors, mimers, dancers, illustrators, designers, and many other things – so we are open to your discipline and practice. We are a mixture of Dutch and International folks. As a living group, we have a nice dynamic of caring and giving space for one another. One can choose to spend time with the group or to take time for themselves. We give support for each other personally and sometimes creatively. On occasion we have spontaneous dinners and sometimes more elaborate planned parties. Collaborations continue to happen between us and other creatives in the broedplaats. The expectation from one another is that everyone cleans up after themselves, perform their house tasks, and to be good to one another.

We are looking for someone who understands the importance of clear communication, taking care of ones own mess, and participating in the upkeep of the house. Who thinks first about how their actions impact the group and the living space. That sees the benefits of being part of living group and wants to be active in it.

We share a large space – a former lecture hall – that is our common room and kitchen. There is a smoking section in the corner of this room (no smoking in the bed rooms). We also share two WCs and 3 showers. Currently the broedplaats is under contract till 2024. Noise can be an issue (mostly from the students (parties) who live in other living groups in the building). Mice occasionally visit the kitchen so we take care to dispose of food waste and keep surfaces clean. Everyone in the house has a regular task that helps with the upkeep and we rotate the garbage responsibility every week.  We all try to find ways to improve the space (like plant spa in our shower room or finding a new way to organize the lids for pans). We try to have semi-regular house meetings to see each other, check in, and discuss matters. We use Slack as our house communication tool.

If living with us looks like something you would be interested in, then we would like to get to know you! Fill out the form below or record a short video answering the questions. The hospiteer (a meeting with the current housemates) which will take place on  Sept 2nd @ 19:00. Please keep that date & time free.

If you have any questions please contact actawg3.4@gmail.com

It is also possible to create a short video (~5 min) answering the questions & send to the email above.
This application is open until Aug 25 @ 22:00.
