Air Frosterus 2018 call is now open!

We welcome artists from all fields of art and design to apply to our residency at the beautiful natural landscape of Kärsämäki, Finland. The deadline for year 2018 is 22.10.2017. Apply by sending a project plan for your residency, portfolio and CV to airfrosterus@gmail.com. Please state in your project plan if you are interested in arranging an exhibition, teaching courses or arranging workshops. We encourage all the artists to choose two possible periods of stay and mark them in the order of preference.
Artist selections are made by the board of Kattilakoski cooperative by 29.10.2017. Selected artists are informed personally.

Residency
Air Frosterus provides artists the time and peace to focus on their work. The beautiful location allows the guests to get inspired by Finnish nature and the four seasons. The length of a residency period can vary between one and six months.

Sauna, silence and a peaceful pace of life are all part of the local culture at Kärsämäki. Though relaxed, the residents of Kärsämäki are very active in organizing events and they have a small town do-it-yourself-attitude. With the hosting organization being a highly active force in the cultural scene of Kärsämäki, residency artists have a front-row seat to the local cultural life.
The residency programme is individually crafted for each artist. The outcome can be an exhibition, a public art work, a publication or something else, according to the project plan. Workshops and community projects are welcomed as a part of the programme, or as the main outcome.
We thrive to support our artists in their work and assist them in planning and managing projects. A gallery space at the centre of Kärsämäki is provided for the artists to exhibit in. The opportunities to cooperate with the local artists and the community are good. Our volunteer workers are happy to help the artists in their work, to supervise the exhibitions and take part to arranging community projects or workshops when needed.
Air Frosterus can host up to four residencies for individuals or couples at once. Our spacious residence allows artists to choose if they want to concentrate on their own work or to collaborate with each other. All visiting artists have a private bedroom/study and the possibility to have their own studio for the period of their stay. The in-house shared studio and common areas allow artists to meet each other, collaborate and get inspired by the work of others.

Duration of the residency period
1-6 months
2-4 months is the recommended duration of the stay
Up to 6 month residency periods are available for artists working on community projects or other projects that can be seen as highly beneficial to local culture
