Helsinki | HIAP residency 2014 open call


The HIAP Residency Programme is offered to arts professionals from a wide range of disciplines, including, but not limited to, Visual and Media Arts, Dance, Theatre and Literature. Living and workspaces are offered for 1-3 months in Helsinki, Finland.

A Standard Residency includes accommodation and studio space at HIAP Studios free of charge for the duration of 1–3 months. The studios, which combine living and working space, are located in Cable Factory and on the island of Suomenlinna, both in Helsinki, Finland.

Please note that a HIAP Standard Residency includes accommodation and services, but neither a working grant nor travel costs. In case the applicant needs to cover travel, living cost, materials, etc., she/he should apply support from appropriate sources. HIAP is able to offer only limited administrative support for such purposes.

Due to high demand and limited availability, HIAP Standard Residency Programme is available only for individuals who have never undertaken a HIAP residency before.

All applications should be submitted by using the online application form.

For a residency taking place from January 2014 onwards, please submit your application by May 1, 2013.

HIAP welcomes artists, curators and other arts professionals with a wide range of backgrounds and diverse practices. The selection is based on professional merit and there are neither limitations nor preferences in factors such as country of origin, age, media, etc.

The main criteria for the selection are the originality and quality of the professional practice and the motivation letter.
