Saari Residence > Individual and Group Residencies (Finland)

The Saari Residence, maintained by Helsinki-based Kone Foundation, is an international residence located in Mynämäki, Southwest Finland. It offers an opportunity for artists of all disciplines and nationalities to focus undisturbed on creative work in the scenic surroundings of a rural manor house, as well the chance to interact with other residents.

Both individual and group residencies are offered. Two-month individual residency periods are available from 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.

An individual residency spanning two months includes accommodation, a workroom and a monthly grant, the sum of which is determined by the applicant’s experience (€2,400 / €2,800 / €3,500 per month). The purpose of the grant is to cover the cost of living, travel costs and other expenses. Groups can apply for grant and support for travel expenses for a work period of one to four weeks.

Additional support is offered for slow travel. (Slow travel refers to avoiding flying and other ecologically unsustainable means of transport. If the journey takes more than a week in total, it is possible to also apply for a work grant for the travels.)

Deadline: 31 March 2020
