AIRY – Artist in Residence

AIRY - Artist in Residence Västernorrland is a residency program that includes three residences. The residences is located in three different places in the region, a ceramic residence at Ålsta folkhögskola in Ånge, a sound arts residence at Hola Folkhögskola in Kramfors and a literary residence at Österåsens hälsohem in Sollefteå.

AIRY will give you as an artist or author time for further development, reflection and exploration of your own artistic expression. Furthermore, AIRY creates opportunities for you to develop contexts around each residence, such as workshops, lectures, art talks and meetings with other artists or authors in the region. A residence can also lead to an exhibition.

Airy ceramics

At the center of Sweden lies Ålsta, in the small community of Fränsta. Here, the hectic pace of the city seems
distant and you will get time to work undisturbed in our inspiring country setting. We offer a fully equipped
ceramics workshop with two stoneware ovens and
accommodations in the same facility. In spite of not being a central location, there is everything you might
want here.

Application deadline 15/05/18

Österåsens Hälsohem is beautifully situated overlooking Ångermanälven, 9 km outside Sollefteå in Ångermanland. The castle-like building was opened in 1901 as a sanatorium of King Oscar II. Österåsen has an exciting 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 home and lifestyle center in the Region Västernorrland.
