Three 2023 Residencies at KulttuuriKauppila in Finland

Three 2023 Residencies at KulttuuriKauppila in Finland

The residency welcomes artists, curators, researchers and other professionals working in the field of art. Deadline: November 23, 2022

 KulttuuriKauppila offers three residency programmes:

  • The KulttuuriKauppila Artist-in-Residence (KKAiR) offers artists time and space to focus on their personal artistic practice and research.
  • The KulttuuriKauppila Artist-in-Community (KKAiC) hosts socially engaged art projects that give the artists an opportunity to engage with the community and build cooperation with relevant local actors.
  • The KulttuuriKauppila Artist-in-Environment (KKAiE) invites artists with a special interest in nature, landscape and the environment. They are especially interested in projects that deal with solastalgia, ie. emotional or existential distress caused by environmental change.

The residency is located in an idyllic cultural heritage site by the river Iijoki, surrounded by an active village community. The fully furnished residency space includes two private rooms with a shared studio space, a kitchen and a bathroom, making it comfortable for individiual artist as well as artist groups. The location is far enough from traffic for peace and quiet, yet near enough to public transportation for reaching the cultural events in Oulu conveniently.
