Applicants will receive confirmation of their application upon receipt of their proposals.

Candidates may be asked to give more information or to specify certain elements of their research proposals. To this purpose they may be invited for an interview.



To apply at a.pass, you are required to send us a proposal for a research project. Your application is meant to give us a clear insight in what you aim to achieve in your 12-month working period, the relevance of your project, and your willingness to open up your personal research to the critical platform of the a.pass participants.


An application dossier should consist of:

  1. research proposal
  2. portfolio (relevant works in relation to the research proposal)
  3. CV
  4. diploma (if possible)

Please upload your dossier as pdf via the online form.

Candidates should be holder of a master’s diploma (artistic or academic) and deliver a copy of this upon registration (or should be considered equivalent through practice-based experience by the co-ordinators and the artistic board).


Entering the post-master program

a.pass accepts proposals 3 times per year: February, June, October (application deadlines are always 6 -7 month before a possible start). 

With each 3-month block (in January, May and September) new participants can join the program. This brings about a constant flow of new perspectives and ideas. It also allows the participants to exchange insights gained during different moments of the research process. The intermediary buffer month can be filled in collectively or individually.

Artistic creation beyond a.pass can be integrated into the individual program: participants can work on their own creations during their studies at a.pass, in so far as these creations are part of the participant’s research project.
