Residencies in Utrecht

In collaboration with the city's venues and festivals, Utrecht Muziek is launching a new initiative, Residencies in Utrecht. Luminaries from the worlds of music, film, literature, and the visual arts head for Utrecht to share their expertise. The (often international) artists link up with local venues, festivals, and art colleges through workshops, master classes, and gigs. Fresh ideas – flown in from abroad – plus brand-new views, know-how, and a wealth of experience elicit inspiration. Thanks to the guests who take part in the Utrecht Residencies, minds will meet as the city hums with activity.
