Visual narrative at Österåsens Hälsohem
Welcome to AIRY Literature at Österåsens hälsohem! Last application day 22 March.
Österåsen offers an inspiring rural and very beautiful environment to stay in. The literature residency at Österåsen is open to authors / artists active in the field of visual narrative. This could include graphic novels, illustrated books, comics and other forms of expression which combine words and images. Only individual artists, no groups.
There is no requirement for artistic production during the residency.
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.
We will invite you to take part in workshops and/or talks and other events during the residency both at Österåsen and in the region. We will discuss the options with the selected author.
Österåsens Hälsohem is beautifully situated overlooking the river Ångermanälven, outside the town of Sollefteå. The castle-like building was opened in 1901 as a sanatorium of King Oscar II. Österåsen has an interesting history in a scenic and culturally stimulating environment. Over the years Österåsen has had many famous writers, artists and musicians as patients, lecturers or visitors. Since 1982, Österåsen is a health and lifestyle centre in the Region Västernorrland.
