Apply for residency at Ateljé Stundars (2019)!

Join us for a three-month residency in 2019 at Ateljé Stundars in Solf, Korsholm (Finland)!

Ateljé Stundars offers its Guest Artists a peaceful rural environment with an excellent chance to concentrate on creative work. Every year we invite four artists to live and work at our residence for a period of three (3) months each: January–March, April–June, July–September or October–December. There is only one Guest Artist staying with us at the time.

The residence operates in conjunction and close co-operation with an open-air museum and centre of culture and art, the Stundars Museum, in the village of Solf in Korsholm, Finland.

Our location and the facilities we offer are excellent for visual artists, painters, photographers and other artists who seek a peaceful place to concentrate on their work. Many of our artists have found great inspiration in the Stundars environment and in the surrounding nature. It is also possible for our Guest Artist to co-operate with a professional theater, the regional Wasa Teater.

We provide our Guest Artist with a studio and an apartment, both rent-free. The studio is situated right in the heart of the Stundars Museum area. The two-bedroom apartment just a stone´s throw away from the studio is fully furnished and equipped.

We expect our Guest Artist to join us with a solid work plan and a strong motivation to fulfill it. We encourage all our artists also to engage in communal activities and arrange artists talks, work shops, open studio events, exhibitions etc.

A residency at Ateljé Stundars is free of charge. Our Guest Artist is paid a grant of 11 Euros a day to cover expenses for materials and supplies. 

We expect our Guest Artists to pay all their travel expenses to and from our residence as well as their living expenses while staying with us – the grant of 11 Euros a day is for artist's materials and supplies only. We also expect our artists to have sufficient health insurance.


Ateljé Stundars is run by KulturÖsterbotten, an organization working with the development of art and culture in Swedish-speaking Ostrobothnia, Finland.
