In 2021, we launched a residency scheme for local artists & creative practitioners. This scheme gives people who are at an early stage of their careers an opportunity to develop their practice in the beautiful surroundings of Gathenhielmska Huset.
By giving artists time and space to devote themselves to their work in a unique environment, we hope to offer new sources of inspiration, encourage experimentation and support artistic advancement. Through the scheme we also want to cultivate new connections between artists, and we envisage there to be public engagement activities in the form of residency presentations.
If the project is successful, we will explore the feasibility of launching a residency for international artists in 2022.
Are you an artist interested in finding out more? We’ll be announcing an open call soon – keep your eyes peeled!
