AIRY – Artist In Residence Västernorrland

Every year, we invite a ceramic artist, a sound artist and an author to stay at three inspiring rural locations in Region Västernorrland. All three residencies are located at Folk High Schools with arts courses.

Ceramics, sound and literature

We offer three art-forms: ceramics, sound, and literature in three unique locations in the north of Sweden. We also provide accommodation, food, a grant to cover travel and other expenses, and a host at each location to support the residence artist.

Time for work and inspiration

You will get the time and space to work undisturbed. And the opportunity to  make connections and engage with the place and the people. 

Deadline and period

Deadline for applications: 20th of March.

Residence-period: September – October.

We welcome applications from emerging and established artists and authors.
