Arteles Creative Residency Programme

The Creative Center run by Arteles is organizing a residency programme, the most international artist residency in Finland, welcoming over 80 creative professionals per year. This residency programme brings together creative professionals from around the world to work together for 1 to 3 months, encouraging experimentation and innovation.

In addition to fostering creativity, the Arteles Creative Residency values partnering with established institutions and individuals to create a rich network for artists to be embedded into. Arteles collaborators from around the world appreciate the selected group of artists and are willing to offer working possibilities for fresh inspiring projects and new creative people. Furthermore, the programme provides plenty of opportunities to connect with the locals and get plugged into the contemporary art scene in Finland. Professionals from the fields of visual arts, media art, music, performing arts, design, architecture, literature and research are invited to apply by 7 October 2011. In this admission cycle, applications are received for the period from December 2011 - June 2012.
