HICP Helsinki International Curatorial Programme > Open call

HICP Helsinki International Curatorial Programme offers curatorial residencies in Helsinki for international curators of contemporary art. It is co-organised by HIAP Helsinki International Artist Programme and Frame Visual Art Finland.

The aim of the programme is to provide curators with an opportunity to carry out research and to develop international curatorial projects while building contacts with art practitioners and cultural organisations in Finland.

Curatorial residencies include the cost of travel to and from Helsinki with a grant for living expenses, studio accommodation, residency services and administrative support. HIAP and Frame both offer practical assistance, networks and critical context for the residents’ curatorial research and projects. A public event such as lecture, workshop or screening is organised during each residency. The curators have also access to the international residency community and programme of events at HIAP, while Frame provides extensive contacts to Finnish artists and other arts professionals.

The length of the curatorial residency is usually one calendar month.

The open call opens on 10 September
