As of 2018 De Link organises an anual artis residency in collaboration with Fontys AMPA.
Promising composers and musicians are given the opportunity to work together on a new music production at Het Cenakel in Tilburg. Participating in the creation process and actively contributing to the develpment of a new compostition is an extraordinary exeperience for a lot of young musicians. That it is essential for a new work to come into being, even more. Composers and performers inspire each other; deppen each others insights and discover new possiblities.
