Konst i Blekinge: Visual Arts Residency for Artists in the Baltic Sea Region and Scandinavia (Sweden)

In the Swedish woods, a man is driving a spade into the ground while a woman bends down with a mic to capture the sound.

AIR Blekinge offers artists a place and resources for artistic development with the aim of establishing long-term collaborations between artists and different actors in the region.

The programme’s focus area is the Baltic Region, where Konst i Blekinge have a longstanding network and collaboration area. The residence is based in Ronneby, Sweden. Two artists from the Baltic Sea region will be selected to live and work at AIR Blekinge during one month from 18 September – 13 October 2023, with the possibility of a later return for collaborations or exhibitions. One artist from Blekinge will also be selected to participate in the residency and share a studio.

Through travels you will explore the county with its towns, cities, nature and archipelago and meet with representatives from different organisations and institutions, to provide new contexts, starting points or conceptual directions. There are studios, exhibition localities and workshop facilities in different medias available. The residency aims to be a catalyst for new art productions in the Baltic Sea region.

Among other forms of support, the residency provides accommodation, a stipend/grant of 3000 EUR, reimbursement of travel expenses to and from the residence, and studio space/facilities.
