Studio Spaces

Studio Spaces

Artist-in-residence programmes are not the only way to stay and work abroad. Did you ever consider a temporary international studio swap? Or renting out your studio while you go abroad so other artists can make use of it? Are you looking for a specific kind of studio on a temporary basis?

Check out this Offered & Wanted Section and see what destinations trigger your imagination... Please note that this concerns mainly working space and not (always) accommodation.

Read here how to proceed to add or remove a studio opportunity from this page.

Housing & optional art studio sought by writer/photographer, Nov 2019 - April/July 2020 (flexible on length of time) / Huisvesting en optionele kunststudio gezocht door schrijver / fotograaf, nov 2019 - april / juli 2020 (flexibel qua tijdsduur)

US-based writer and digital photographer seeks affordable housing (with or without a separate art studio) for next six to nine months (Nov 2019 through April 2020, possibly until end of July 2020 or longer), while working on several writing and photography projects. I am a non-smoker, quiet, considerate, tidy, mature, and handy around the house. Plus I have managed residential housing, and know how to cope with emergencies ranging from plugged sinks and toilets to electrical fires, earthquakes, and wildfires.

Currently based in the San Francisco Bay Area (California), but flexible as to location within US, Canada, or Mexico. Would prefer to be in quiet locale, with some access to public transit.

Small budget (up to $700 (USD) per month), but wiling to trade house/pet sitting, computer help, family/genealogy research, and other home help services in lieu of additional rent or for a rent reduction.

Previously arranged two housing and art studio rentals in Den Haag, NL, through this website; happy to provide Dutch and US references. My Dutch cousins live in and around Amsterdam and Rotterdam.

Please contact via email at jmftravels [op] yahoo [punt] com.

Thanks you kindly,

Huisvesting en optionele kunststudio gezocht door schrijver / fotograaf, nov 2019 - april / juli 2020 (flexibel qua tijdsduur)

In de VS gevestigde schrijver en digitale fotograaf zoekt betaalbare huisvesting (met of zonder een aparte kunststudio) voor de komende zes tot negen maanden (nov 2019 tot april 2020, mogelijk tot eind juli 2020 of langer), terwijl ze werken aan verschillende schrijf- en fotografieprojecten . Ik ben een niet-roker, rustig, attent, netjes, volwassen en handig in het hele huis. Bovendien heb ik woonhuizen beheerd en weet ik hoe ik moet omgaan met noodsituaties, variërend van aangesloten wastafels en toiletten tot elektrische branden, aardbevingen en bosbranden.

Momenteel gevestigd in de San Francisco Bay Area (Californië), maar flexibel qua locatie in de VS, Canada of Mexico. Zou liever op een rustige locatie zijn, met enige toegang tot het openbaar vervoer.

Klein budget (tot $ 700 (USD) per maand), maar bereid zijn om huis / huisdieren te ruilen, computerhulp, familie / genealogisch onderzoek en andere thuishulpdiensten in plaats van extra huur of voor een huurkorting.

Eerder via deze website twee woningen en kunststudio's in Den Haag geregeld; graag Nederlandse en Amerikaanse referenties verstrekken. Mijn Nederlandse neven en nichten wonen in en rond Amsterdam en Rotterdam.

Neem contact op via e-mail op jmftravels [op] yahoo [punt] com.

Dank u vriendelijk,

Studio or desks in creative space in Stockholm Sweden

Dear artists, 

I am a visual and performance artist based in Berlin, New York, and Stockholm. I currently have two desks available in my lovely studio in Stockholm, Sweden where I usually work together with my assistant and collaborator who is a fashion designer and interior architect. 

Since we will be going on tour you won't see us much and it is therefore also possible to rent the whole studio for some months during that time. 

The studio is 35 sqm and located in a building created for artists, designers, fashion designers, and other creatives. You have access to the studio 24h/day and it has a very good high-speed internet. There is a kitchen, bathroom, common space and shower but to live there it is not allowed. 

Price per spot 250 EUR/month (paid per for 3 months at a time), plus a deposit of 1000 EUR.

I prefer to rent it out at least 3 months at a time, but are open to other alternatives! 

Write something about yourself and I promise to get back to you! 

You can see some pictures of the space here:

If you are coming from abroad and also need help with finding galleries or to curate your own show, let us know!


Pony Sugar is also a gallery and creates shows in both Sweden and Germany!
