The selected group of artists will be invited to stay at the Christinegard mansion (see image) from September 19th to October 19th. Each artist will be provided their own room within the mansion and studios will be within a small commute.

Each collective also has shared kitchen space with various artistic facilities and equipment. The Mansion is a luxury complex 5 minutes to the downtown core.

Flaggfabrikken – Center of Contemporary Art is a non-profit organization run by artists in Bergen, Norway.

Flaggfabrikken was initiated in 2003 by ten former students from Bergen National Academy of the Arts. An old flag factory which they renovated with the ambition to create individual working spaces and to set up a local base of competence for contemporary art. Since then Flaggfabrikken has housed several Bergen based artists and international guests.
