Art Inside Out

General information

Brief description of organisation

Art Inside Out is a nomadic residency program. The core personnel are a artistic director and an art & culture producer, but with every residency we build a team of co-workers. Connected to every residency are also different filmmakers (or sound artists) who follow the process and document it. All the residencies are uniquely curated, so what kind of team is working with the artists during the residency depends on many factors.

Brief description of residency program

Art Inside Out is an art institution and a residency program that promotes artistic creativity and engagement with audiences in flexible, cross-cultural formats through the concept of residencies. Art Inside Out

Art Inside Out is a nomadic residency program. Artists are invited to work in residence at different locations in Halland County (which is a region in the southern Sweden). New contexts arise in meetings between artists, local inhabitants and audiences, and places.

Our residencies are open for both international and national artists working with all forms of artistic expressions. We offer an opportunity for a creative practitioner to come to work in Halland for a set period of time with support that includes full funding, travels, technical facilities, accommodation and work premises.

Each residency is uniquely curated, and it starts processes that can carry on long after the residence artists have left the site. That is one of the aims with the flexible art institute Art Inside Out that is run as a partnership between the Halland County and its six municipalities.

Since the start in January 2016 we have had four residencies in different parts of Halland County, and hosted about twenty artist from a various fields of artistic expressions, including poetry and design.
