Kristinestad Artists' Residency

Kristinestad Artists' Residency

Description 

The Kristinestad Residency is a joint project between the Yelema association (running a residency in Senegal since 2012), the municipal cultural affairs officer and the local art association Spectra. The emphasis is on cultural immersion and interaction with the local community. The residency is rooted in the local community, and the natural and cultural environment including craft traditions can serve as sources of inspiration for work. Reflection on issues and practices that are central to the local and Finnish context is encouraged.
Both retreat-like contemplation and concentration and community-centered projects are feasible. The organizers will facilitate collaboration with local schools and associations. 

Outcome 

Exhibitions or workshops welcome but not compulsory.

Accommodation Information 

Single-room accommodation with shared bathrooms and kitchens. Three options at close distance to the studios, all in traditional wooden buildings.

Studio Information 

Five bright studio spaces of 10 - 15 sqm, with large desks and storage. Simple printmaking facilities are available. Separate space for large-sized, messy work or woodwork can be organised for an additional fee.
