Arteles Creative Center in Finland is one of the largest and most international creative residencies in Scandinavia. Welcoming over 90 selected visual artists/ curators/ musicians/ writers/ performance artists/ photographers/ designers / architects per year. It is an inspiring place to produce original work and collaborate with other energetic and ambitious artists & creative professionals for a concentrated period of time from 1 to 3 months.
The Center is run by Arteles, non-profit organization, encouraging experimentation and innovation - and therefore give voice to works that otherwise have nowhere else to be produced or displayed. Their living and studio spaces are designed to support creative activities and social exchange and every resident will have their own fully equipped private bedroom.
The center is located in the middle of extraordinary nature of Hämeenkyrö, Finland (European Union Landscape Award in 2009) where you can soak in the fresh air, enjoy the silence, go for wandering walks in the forests, swimming in the many lakes nearby, go skiing and skating at winter time, do hiking and trekking trips in the nearby nature or have daily relaxing in a traditional wood-fire sauna. You can also get to know the fascinating and rich old culture of Finland viewed through Kalevala Epic, full of trolls, witches, myths and its inherent ties with nature.
