ART

MUSIC AND MEDIA (in co-operation with local professional music studio, Sonic Factory)
ARCHITECTURE

Instructions for applying can be found from Call page.

Residency is situated in a small but culturally very active rural town called Kärsämäki in the region of North-Ostrobothnia, Finland. Calm and relaxed lifestyle, traditions, sauna and being close to the nature are part of our everyday life.

We want to offer our guests a place that fosters creativity, feeds experimentations and gives birth to innovations. We’d like to give free hands to our visiting artists and guarantee that the ideas flow.

As cultural scene of our town is very active and Kärsämäki is considered as a “cultural nest” of our region, starting a residence program was natural decision for the cooperative.  Associations network is wide, opportunities to connect with locals are strong and we believe it will be a benefit for the artists.

We are a members of ResArtis and TransArtists worldwide network of artist residencies
