Finland | Saari Residence 2021 call

Open call for 2-month artists residencies in 2021 at the Saari Residence, maintained by Helsinki-based Kone Foundation, an international residence located in Mynämäki, Southwest Finland.

The residency positions are intended for individual professional artists, fiction writers, poets, novelists, translators, curators and critics, and artistic collectives (work groups or established organizations with a business ID, the minimum group size is 3 people) of all disciplines and all nationalities for the purpose of carrying out a project proposal presented in advance. Individual residency should be applied with a work partner in a joint application.

The selections for Saari residents emphasise artists whose work is rejuvenating and topical, as well as new forms of art. For each residency period, our aim is to select both Finnish and international artists, with representation from several different disciplines of art and stages of career.

The two-month individual residency periods are January to February 2021, March to April 2021, September to October 2021 and November to December 2021, while the group residencies for 1 to 4 weeks take place during the months of May, June, July and August 2021.
