Nordic Artists´ Centre Dale 2021

Nordic Artists´ Centre Dale is an Artist-in-Residence centre funded by Norwegian Ministry Of Culture. The A-I-R program encourages international contacts for artists and focuses on visual arts including design, architecture and locally rooted practice. Nordic Artists' Centre Dale is situated in the village of Dale, the administrative centre of the Fjaler municipality on the West Coast of Norway. NKD offers artists an opportunity to contemplate, concentrate and work. Presenting invited artists to inspiring living and working conditions, NKD strives to contribute to innovative artwork. The visiting artists from around the globe create an international spirit, and it is NKD’s objective to strengthen and further artistic cooperation in the Nordic area and internationally.

There are five private residencies of various sizes for the selected artists. The houses have at least one bedroom, a bathroom, a combined kitchen and living room and are all fully equipped.

In the main building the five studios are found, each 50 square meters. The artist studios have a common design, making it possible to work with various techniques. They have white walls, wooden floor and a five metres height to the ceiling. The studios have wireless Internet access. In addition, artists have access to the main workshop, set up for woodworking and equipped for welding. The building also contains a darkroom (for black and white prints, small/medium size negatives), a room for surface treatment and a printing press (for relief printing techniques such as woodcut, linocut etc.). All together the studio building area is about 670 square meters. The site of the centre is also suited for outdoor work.

The residency at the Nordic Artists’ Centre includes a monthly grant of NOK 10.000,-. Travel costs will be covered after appointment, but within a limit of NOK 5.000,-. Living and working spaces are for free.
