Past year we have been gathering resources and scouting possibilities for a new location for our residency program. We are happy to announce we are relocating to a beautiful spot in Rautjärvi, South Karelia.
The building from the year 1905 that during its history has served as a school, a field hospital during the war and as a summer camp center for the local congregation will now be transformed into a center for arts and place for a community. In the surroundings you can find hiking routes, streams, rural lakes and beautiful deep forrest in the southeast of Finland.
We are already renovating the spaces for studios and living quarters suitable for communal living for three artits at a time. We are so excited for all the added space for it allows wider networking opportunities, events, co-learning and peer-support.
The open call for 2024 is now open and we welcome applications for residency periods all through may to october the upcoming year.
