The organisation is situated in the south of Swedish Lapland in a village called Västra Örträsk. Örträsk is situated by the river Öreälv and the lake Örträsksjön. The residency with a studio and three-room apartment is in a former free church built in 1958. The lake and river are surrounded by forest.

The residence welcomes and offers artists the opportunity to develop their project within the following fields: Visual arts, literary arts, research, sculpture, design, environmental art and music. The location of the residence is rural so for artists looking for an inspiring, quiet place where you can test new ideas, develop your work and above all, find the tranquility you need to explore and develop your work, this place is the one for you.
