Residency Features:

The Snäcksund Croft in Ekenäs/Tammisaari, Finland, is a place for short-stay periods of artistic or art-related research, adjoined to the Snäcksund Villa residence. This Nordic-oriented programme is open to artists, curators, art critics and art educators through open call and by invitation. Each residency is planned individually in order to match the needs of the specific project. Due to the diverse character of projects we facilitate stays up to 2 months with the possibility to split a residency period and return for further development of the project. The Snäcksund Croft is situated approx 1,5 hours South of Helsinki. This open call offers residency periods during 2019 onwards.


The Snäcksund Croft offers an approx 30 square foot fully furnished living space suitable for one artist or an artist couple. Participants receive travel allowances for the most economical return journey. A production support according to need and pre-calculated project costs is also granted.
