Art Inside Out

Art Inside Out


Art Inside Out is an art institution and a residency program that promotes artistic creativity and engagement with audiences in flexible, cross-cultural formats through the concept of residencies.

Art Inside Out is a nomadic residency program. Artists are invited to work in residence at different locations in Halland County (which is a region in the southern Sweden). New contexts arise in meetings between artists, local inhabitants and audiences, and places. The residencies are open for both international and national artists working with all forms of artistic expressions. They offer an opportunity for a creative practitioner to come to work in Halland for a set period of time with support that includes full funding, travels, technical facilities, accommodation and work premises. Each residency is uniquely curated, and it starts processes that can carry on long after the residence artists have left the site. That is one of the aims with the flexible art institute Art Inside Out that is run as a partnership between the Halland County and its six municipalities.

Since the start in January 2016 they have had six residencies in different parts of Halland County, and hosted about thirty artist from a various fields of artistic expressions, including poetry and design.
