RaumArs A-i-R is one of the oldest artist residencies in Finland. The activities are based on extensive cooperation with art and cultural institutions, associations, artists and individuals. Artists from different fields carry out community and participatory art projects, workshops, events and performances with local communities, groups and individuals.

Besides community or independent work there is an interesting opportunity for collaborative work and study in the Old Rauma Renovation Centre Tammela. We offer the place mainly to an architect or researcher who specializes in the following topics: cultural environment, cultural heritage, world heritage, wood construction. Applications from artists from other disciplines are also welcomed, and we hope they relate to the world heritage.

All residency artists have good opportunities to obtain materials for crafts from our partners.

Prizes Details: 

Community artists get a room free of charge. Independently working artists pay a small fee 250€/mont. All artists pay a registration fee 100€.

Open call: Saari Residence 2022

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

The Saari Residence, maintained by Helsinki-based Kone Foundation, is an international residence located in Mynämäki, Southwest Finland. It offers an excellent opportunity for professional artists of all disciplines and nationalities to focus undisturbed on creative work in the scenic surroundings of a rural manor house, as well the chance to interact with other residents.

Ecological sustainability, which includes social and mental sustainability, is an essential aspect of the thinking and the activities of the residence. An ecological approach is not a criterion in the artists’ selection process: the ecological focus is on residence activities.

The Saari Residence has been able to be operate despite the coronavirus pandemic. Some residencies have taken place remotely, but if the coronavirus situation allows, the Saari Residence will provide its usual residencies in Mynämäki, Finland in 2022.

The Saari Residence hosts approximately 35–50 residents or workgroups each year. Since the residency opened in 2008, nearly 600 artists from 50 different countries have participated in the program.

THE SAARI RESIDENCE OFFERS:

A grant. An individual residency spanning two months includes accommodation, a workroom and a monthly grant, the sum of which is determined by the applicant’s experience (€2,500/€3,000/€3,600 per month). The purpose of the grant is to cover the costs of living, travel and other expenses. Groups can apply for grant and support for travel expenses for a work period of two to four weeks.

Support for slow travel. “Slow travel” refers to travel that avoids flying in favour of more ecologically unsustainable means of transportation. You can apply for slow travel support if you are arriving at the Saari Residence from outside of Finland and travelling out of Finland upon departure. If the journey takes more than a week in total, you may also apply for a work grant such travel.

Accommodation. The Saari Residence apartments have a kitchen or kitchenette with basic amenities, and one of the buildings has a shared kitchen. Each resident has an apartment to themselves, including an en suite shower and toilet. Groups stay in more compact accommodations and often share apartments.

Working space. The Barn at the Saari Residence has been renovated as a diverse workspace for various artistic practices. The building contains a dance studio, two studios for visual artists, a sewing machine and a woodworking shop. The rooms for literary work are located in the apartments.
The residence does not have a darkroom, media room or equipment for printing, pottery, graphics or textile work. Artists may also apply for a residency for the planning stage of their work.
Groups working at the residence during summer months may also work in the unheated outbuildings. Residents will not have to share workspaces with others.

A peaceful working environment. The Saari Residence is located in a tranquil rural setting surrounded by nature, situated on the shore of Mynälahti, 30 km north of Turku. The diverse workspaces and peaceful countryside surroundings provide a productive setting for focusing on one’s work. The Saari Residence is not intended for networking within the field of art or for hosting exhibitions or performances. No exhibition or performance is required at the end of the residency period.

The opportunity to meet other artists. The Saari Residence is also a meeting place for artists and researchers. The two-month individual residency periods, which typically host seven artists from different fields and a researcher working under a Kone Foundation grant, provide plenty of opportunities for interaction that crosses the boundaries between both different art forms and the arts and sciences. At the same time, the Saari Residence offers a peaceful and unique setting where residents can focus on their work. The Saari Residence’s Community Artist works at the residence throughout the year.

Mentoring programme. We offer every artist at the Saari Residence two mentoring sessions carried out through a remote connection during their two-month residency. Our mentors are key professionals in their fields of art who live in Finland. They have a career spanning at least a couple decades and are skilled listeners and conversationalists. Each one also has a personal relationship with the Saari Residence. The mentoring sessions will be carried out in connection with the two-month periods of individual residencies – that is, from the beginning of September to the end of April. No mentoring sessions will take place in the summer.

Curator call

Eligibility:

Suoja/ Shelter Festival-Laboratory seeks a Curator for its third online edition to be held in June 2020. Individuals of any age, gender, nationality and country of residence are cordially invited to send their proposal in English. 

The conceptual frame of the 3rd edition of Suoja/ Shelter Festival-Laboratory is H_st_rical Narratives: the main focus is laid on the aspects of personal and political affects in the domain of historical systems and speculations. We invite to ponder over how unreflected past can influence uncertain presence; how individual and common affects are used as tokens in political processes; how we can act as political bodies overcoming traumatic experiences and converting them into artistic endeavours, respecting artistic labour and embracing the idea of self-organisation. Driven by the spirit of the previous festival editions, we are reconceptualizing the idea of "safe" and "individual" which still can find ways to remain common and collaborative. Moving online, we are creating a space for performative experiments, discussions, immersive interactions; welcoming the diversity of artistic practices which can reidentify themselves for a digital space; offering to make it is a tryout with a prospect to continue working with the same topic, but on a bigger scale, during the future offline event. We believe that every safe space can be only a temporary measure to surmount crisis and to gain strength to meet reality. Being concerned by the trend of the devaluation of artistic labour by cutting wages for on-line work, we try our best to sustain a fair allowance for every participant.

A Curator will work in close collaboration with festival curators and organisers to develop and produce the core programme of Suoja/ Shelter 2020.
