AIRY Sound Arts

Welcome to AIRY Sound art at Hola Folkhögskola! Last application day March 20.

Through the years Hola Folkhögskola’s Sound Art Course has established a platform for sound art with a practical focus. The course with its network of guest teachers and course leader, Björn Eriksson, is internationally recognised in the audio arts field. The residency offers a combined sound studio with lab space and workshop as well as active hosting that enables access to the regional art life, artist presentations, performances, installations and interaction with the Sound Art Course.

We welcome applications from emerging and established artists. Only individual artists, no groups.

There is no requirement for artistic production during the residency.

You should expect to do a presentation about you as an artist and to spend some time (1-2 days) with the art students at Hola during your stay.

We will invite you to take part in workshops and/or talks and other events during the residency both at Hola and in the region, and we will discuss the possibilities with the selected artist. You should expect to do at least one talk about your work, and participate in at least one group event with AIRY artists, other artists and authors in the region.

About Hola

Hola Folkhögskola is announcing a sound art residency in Prästmon, Sweden. Hola Folkhögskola, a school similar to a community college, has a long tradition of offering a creative and beautiful environment for people working in the fields of music, sound and art. The school is situated on the shore of the Ångermanälven river in the High Coast World Heritage Site – an area of magnificent, unspoilt nature with many historical places and environments.

Despite its rural location, it is easy to get to Hola, since the college has a train station (Västeraspby) and an airport (Höga Kusten Airport) nearby.


We provide a private room (17 m²) with an en-suite bathroom. A small flat (25 m² including kitchenette) may also be available. Hola Folkhögskola has a drug and alcohol-free policy.
