Open call for The Croft (Ekenäs/Tammisaari, Finland) January – May 2018.

The Croft is a place for short periods of artistic or art-related research, adjoined to the Snäcksund Villa residence. The residence programme at The Croft is open to Nordic artists, curators, art critics and educators, and is built around both invited projects and periodically announced open calls. Each residency is planned individually to match the needs of the project. Due to the diverse character of projects we facilitate both short and long stays (up to 2 months). Participants receive travel allowances for the most economical return journey to The Croft, plus production support according to need. The Croft also serves as a residency-in-residence programme under The Villa programme.

About the Pro Artibus Foundation
The work of the Pro Artibus Foundation focuses on contemporary art, temporary and permanent art in public settings, and the Foundation’s own, constantly growing art collection. The Foundation continually collaborates with artists, curators, art institutions and organizations in other sectors of society. Via The Croft residency programme the Foundation seeks to engage in sustainable development by applying principles that are also embraced by the Foundation’s other programmes and activities. Projects and productions realized under The Croft programme can be directed at a specific audience, focus on in-depth artistic research, or be part of broader contexts, and rooted in topical social issues.
