De Besturing has a talent program called HIDE OUT. This program is two-folded: HIDE OUT Project Space: a studio space for a collective of makers to kickstart their own creative hub. And HIDE OUT Studio: a workspace for a talented student available for free for a whole year.


The kick off of De Besturing’s talent program HIDE OUT took place on 6 October 2018 with the selection of the first talent for HIDE OUT Studio. Gökay Atabek, student at the ArtScience department of the KABK in The Hague, joined us for a full year, working from his very own studio in the Binckhorst. In October 2019, he made space for a new talent: Gabriela Acha. Check out her website:
Also, we’re very happy that Gökay is still part of our collective! He took the opportunity to move to his own permanent studio in De Besturing.

HIDE OUT Project Space

HIDE OUT Project Space offers you the chance to set up your own ‘creative hub’ within De Besturing as a collective of makers. A place to work, think and play hard with a group of like-minded people. You can create and expose new work, and simultaneously, develop a strong organizational backbone for the collective.

Since September 2019, a group of 7 young artists – called Hgtomi Rosa – are setting up their own collective in HIDE OUT Project Space. Check their website for more info:!
