About Contact AiR Studios Projects Workshops Open Call ︎ ︎
The artist residency program started in 2013, and we have had around 50 artists from 15 countries. Most of them have stayed for one or two months, also conducting workshops and seminars. Now we want to concentrate on profile with the Nordic countries and the Baltic, after some inspiring contacts.
We have invited artists from Iceland, Denmark and Sweden, who have projects also involving the local community. We are cooperating with "Energiverket Jakobstad" - Finnish artists- about "New Fluxus"- a project in the making, supported by The Nordic Culture.
We offer up to fifteen artist residencies for periods of one to three months, giving them the choice of length of stay and an a choice of living and working arrangements, whether it be in the apartment building adjacent to the mainhouse or a room in the main building.
The main building has three floors with seven studios, including a separate photo darkroom and a printmaking workshop, which houses two large presses an a large Epson printer.
Living accommodations in the main house include seven bedrooms, two kitchens, a living room and a meeting room, in the adjacent apartment, two bedrooms, bath, and living room with a kitchen.
There are four local artists with studios, who contribute to helping visiting artists, a part-time custodian and part-time cleaning personnel.
