Arvo Pärt Centre Residency Scholarship (Estonia)

The peace, the light and the silence at the creative spaces of the Arvo Pärt Centre welcome artists from all over the world to work, create and find inspiration. The residency is open for composers and performers as well as creators from other fields – writers, visual artists, architects, film and dance artists. The residency welcomes solo artists as well as smaller ensembles, collectives or small working groups (up to 4 people). Since 2023 the Arvo Pärt Centre residency is part of the Estonian Creative Residencies Network (LOORE).

The aim of the residency is to offer the time and space for open-ended, creative processes. During the chosen residency period, the artist is welcome to work and practise at the APC building as well as the surrounding area with no fixed requirement for a completed work or project.

The Arvo Pärt Centre is located in Laulasmaa, 35 kilometres from Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, on a beautiful natural peninsula between the sea and a pine forest. As the centre does not include accommodation facilities, the residency will be combined with hotel accommodation in the area, 800m walking distance from the centre building.

Two residency scholarships are awarded every year, one for musicians and one for other artists. The scholarship will provide an all costs covered residency by the APC, including international and local travel, use of residency facilities, hotel accommodation in the area and per diems. The applicant is free to decide the duration for the residency between 1 to 4 weeks. Please note this residency is personal and does not include any accompanying persons. While it is possible for small ensembles, collectives or working groups (up to 4 people) to apply for the scholarship, the APC has funds to only cover the expenses of 1 person in a group.
