AIR on the Edge is a one-month international artist residency exchange between Denmark, Finland, Ireland, the Netherlands and Serbia. It focuses on artists’ professional development, creating opportunities for artists to engage with rural communities, and is rooted in rural places and cities on the edges of Europe.
Through these residencies the programme offers artists an opportunity to connect with host organisations, communities, nature, heritage and cultural landscapes of a variety of rural places and cities.
AIR on the Edge partners invite artists to apply for one of ten AIR on the Edge residencies that will be hosted in either Ireland, the Netherlands, Serbia, Denmark or Finland to engage with local communities. Ten artists, two from each country, will be awarded a residency, and two artists will be hosted in each country. Artists must apply for a residency that is not in their country of residence. Residency dates offered will be subject to availability, but will take place between September 2023 and June 2024.
Applicants must live or work in County Galway (Ireland), Fryslan (The Netherlands), Novi Sad (Serbia), Pirkanmaa (Finland), or Ringkøbing-Skjern and mid Jutland area (Denmark).
Selected artists will receive studio space, self-catering accommodation, an artist fee of 3000 EUR, and travel and per diem expenses of up to 1000 EUR.
