KulttuuriKauppila AiR // Call for Applications

International AiR program of KulttuuriKauppila Art Centre

The international AiR program of KulttuuriKauppila Art Centre, Ii, Finland, provides time and space to work in peace free from the everyday haste, new contacts to the art field as well as to the local community.

Artists from all art branches can apply to KulttuuriKauppila AiR, though we concentrate on visual arts, community arts and applied arts. The duration of the stay varies between two and four months.

Fill out the application form and attach your CV and portfolio. Include also a working plan for the residency. If you are interested in having a bigger exhibition in the region, please state this in the application, too. As Finland is known for its four very distinct seasons, the applicants are asked to state the season (summer / fall / winter / spring) they prefer for their stay in their application.

The residency program is tailored for each artist. In order to develop the individual program the artist is asked to plan his/her stay. The guest artist may take part in the activities of the local art field by teaching courses, arranging community art workshops and producing artworks to exhibitions in the region.

If the guest artist has a special field of expertise that she/he is interested in sharing with colleagues, we offer possibilities to arrange master classes for local artists throughout the year. The artists who teach classes get paid for their work.

Please note that there is only one artist or an artist couple at a time in the residency. Most of all KulttuuriKauppila is a place of silence and peace and a place to find time and inspiration for the creation of art.

KulttuuriKauppila makes the selection of the guest artists. The selected applicants will be informed personally. Applications can be sent either via e-mail to or by post to the art centre. Please note that the rent of the residence is 400 € per month.

Fill out the application form and send it to us with other materials.
