I am an independent curator, and I organize artist residencies and creative retreats.


Art & Culture



Constance van Berckel is an independent curator, art entrepreneur and event organizer. She is dedicated to merging art and creativity with personal development and nature's lessons, in order to inspire positive societal change. She currently divides her time between Amsterdam and Tuscany, where in 2022 she founded SOPRA SOTTO, an interdisciplinary art residency and creative think tank. The aim is to bring together artists, creators, thinkers, and visionaries from diverse backgrounds, to collectively address pressing issues of our time. In addition to artist residencies, SOPRA SOTTO also offers creative wellness retreats (open to everyone, not just artists) and tailor-made art tours and travel experiences in Tuscany and beyond.

Rooted in reconnecting with oneself, others, and nature, the SOPRA SOTTO art residency fosters collaboration and cross-pollination between its residents. By harnessing art as a potent tool for exploration, research, communication and education, the project strives to reimagine alternative futures in our digital age and beyond, for the community as well as the collective.

The residency program focuses on interdisciplinary culture shapers, bringing together artists, thinkers, and visionaries. We invite people from diverse backgrounds, all walks of life, any ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender. For several weeks, creatives live communally and learn, create, and work together, using art and creativity as tools to research, examine and learn.
