BRUNAKRA Temporary

The residency program BRUNAKRA Temporary has grown out of a personal interest for art and society particularly focusing on the artistic and productive process. It has from the start been the ambition to offer a sanctuary free from commercial interests giving time and space to work undisturbed on a dedicated project. They are also aiming to create interconnectivity between the art world and groups that generally is seen as standing further from access to cultural capital.

BRUNAKRA Temporary (Brunåkra Kulturförening) has offered residencies in various forms to artists, journalists and writers since 2010. Today the overall ambition is to attract international cultural practitioners and to offer exchange of ideas with local and national networks. The residency program has been built up gradually over the years and they’re now able to offer three resident periods a year. The long term ambition is to invest in the development of a heated workshop and possible additional accommodation to be able to grant two or more guests at the same time.

They offer the residents four weeks stay - the time is supposed to be used to concentrate on a project defined when applying for the residency. At the end of the visit the organizers normally arrange a public presentation by the resident, attended by a regular and recurring audience. The residents are also welcomed to seek contact with local partners for workshops or other kinds of exchanges.


Public presentation in any form presenting the guests main focus while resident.
