Open international call to  individual professional artists, fiction writers, poets and novelists, translators, curators and critics and artistic collectives of all disciplines and nationalities to apply for 2 month residencies at Saari Residence in Finland in 2020.

The Saari Residence, maintained by Kone Foundation, is a residence located in Mynämäki, Southwest Finland, for professional artists of all disciplines and nationalities. It offers an excellent opportunity to focus undisturbed on creative work in the scenic surroundings of a rural manor house, as well as opportunities for interaction with other residents.

The residency places are intended for individual professional artists, fiction writers, poets and novelists, translators, curators and critics and artistic collectives (work group or an established organization with a Business ID) of all disciplines and all nationalities for the purpose of carrying out a project proposal presented in advance. Non-fiction writers and researcher are not eligible to apply for the Residency.

The two-month working periods for individual residencies take place during spring, autums and winter, and group residencies for 1 to 4 weeks take place during the months of May, June, July and August.


Residency places can be applied for artistic work. We favour fields of art and subjects which are multidisciplinary, new and emerging from outside the main stream.

For selected artists, a monthly grant is provided, intended for living and travel expenses. The amount depends on the experience level of the artist. Further information under FAQs on website.
