Fiskars village artist in residence
The residency is mostly self-directed and the Fiskars AiR coordinator and Onoma staff will do their best to connect you with local professionals and organisations for studio visits and possible collaborations. Workshops, artist talks, screenings, micro exhibitions or other events are encouraged and it is their wish that the visitor donates an art piece or product to the AiR collection at the end of his/her residency.
⚠️ Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, no open call for 2021 has been organized. Fiskars is trying to reschedule cancelled residencies as much as possible and accept open applications until the situation returns to normal.
Workshops, presentations, pop-up exhibitions and open studios will be arranged according to individual interests.
