At least 1 midweek

Throughout the year, excepting the Christmas holidays and the period between 15 July and 15 August


The Passa Porta Studio (not to be confused with our official residency programme) is accessible to translators, academics, literary professionals, and authors in all literary genres. Authors and translators must have published at least one literary work with a professional publishing house (or have obtained publishing contract). To be considered as a playwright, a professional company must have performed at least one play, and as a scriptwriter at least one of your scripts must have been turned into a ‘director’s movie’. Academics and literary professionals must enclose their CV with their application.

We accept all applications that meet the criteria, on the basis of the first come, first served principle.

The minimum rental period comprises a full working week. You yourself are responsible for your own meals and drink, with the exception of coffee, tea and water.

Rental prices can be downloaded below. Bespoke arrangements are possible; feel free to contact us for all the financial and technical questions or to book a workspace.
