Nyskaben: Participatory Art Residency for Artists and Cultural Practitioners (Denmark)

A lonely road snaking through green fields at dawn.

Nyskaben is organising a residency from 1-30 June 2024 for 4 artists/cultural practitioners (A/CP) in Lundø, Denmark.

Nyskaben invite A/CP that work with participatory art within their own artistic practice, or in other cultural fields such as social work, youth work, formal and informal education to apply. The participatory aspect can be in the development process (i.e. working with people throughout the research and creative process) or the end product (i.e. audience participation or performative games).

The call prioritises A/CP that work within the fields of performance and visual art, and who address environmental questions of any kind in their work.

Individual applications are recommended, but Nyskaben will allow applications from duos or groups with good justification.

Only people legally residing in a Creative Europe country can apply. As the residency promotes international collaboration and takes place in Denmark, A/CP residing in Denmark cannot apply.

Nyskaben specifically encourage A/CP who want to boost their activities after having taken up a parental leave to apply. There is the opportunity for families (partners, children) to join in the residency for 2 of the 4 weeks.

The residency offers:

  • Free accommodation in a small but fully equipped vacation house.
  • Travel allowance of 350 - 700 EUR per person, based on distance and means of transportation.
  • A daily allowance of 25 EUR per day for food expenses, local transport, etc.
  • A communal workspace (no black box).

The residents will get the opportunity to learn from each other and work closely with local artists and cultural practitioners in a small rural environment surrounded by the beautiful sea of the Danish Limfjord. About 150 people inhabit the peninsula and many locals are consciously invested in strengthening their relation to the landscape of Lundø, which is considered a national treasure struggling with ecological challenges.
