Open Call for
MUSTARINDA ARTIST / WRITER / RESEARCHER RESIDENCIES
Working period: 1 – 2 months during
SPRING /// 1st February 2019 – 30th April 2020
AUTUMN /// 1st September 2019 – 30th November 2020

Located in Hyrynsalmi (Kainuu province, Finland), Mustarinda-residency offers rooms for artists, writers and researchers of varying fields. Available for rent are four artist studios and additionally three rooms suitable for researchers/writers.

Mustarinda is situated on the second highest summit in Kainuu, adjacent to the north-east edge of the Paljakka nature reserve. The surrounding view is of valuable, and in some places, completely untouched old-growth forests. Paljakka and Mustarinda are also some of Finland’s snowiest areas. Mustarinda is the only inhabited house on the summit, 23 kilometers from the nearest village.

The Mustarinda Association reaches towards a post-fossil culture by combining scientific knowledge and experiential artistic activity and aims to continually reduce its carbon footprint and that of those associated with it. In keeping with this, through the AIR Open Call 2019 we are attempting to promote other forms of transport than air travel. To support this ideal we are offering a few slow travel support grants for those applicants willing to use alternative means of transport.

Applications will be submitted via online application form.
Applicants will be informed about decisions by the end of November.

You can find details about open call and residency program on our webpages or facebook.
