Hovinkartano Arts and Cultural Centre, Finland

Residency in old Manor House surroundings in Finnish countryside.

Description of residency program
We prefer the artists to suggest the program that is most profitable for their career. Write shortly about your ideas and plans for the residency time.

Duration of residency
The duration of the residency is 1-2 weeks starting Mondays. We are open during the summer months June. July and August.

Disciplines, work equipment and assistance
Our curator is a professional artis and will help with all the work equipments. She will also help the artist in going shopping for the probable artistic materials etc. needed.

Private or shared rooms in old manor buildings. Modern showers and facilties are in a separate building nearby. Sheets and towels are included. Possibility to make own coffees and prepare own meals. We help in going shopping to the supermarkets.

Studio/ workspace
Several different spaces to work in both inside and under roof outside. There is a waste garden area around the houses and a lake very close.

Fees and support
We support the accomodation so that the remaining cost for one week is 120 euros (200 euros for a couple). Since we operate on totally private bases we have no possibility to give any grants. We are happy to send an invitaion to work in Hovinkartano in case it helps the artist to get some support from elsewhere.

Expectations towards the artist
We wish to get at least one work from the artist to our collections. We also expect the artist to take part in a workshop or even help if one is organized in our premises during the residency time.
