Pro Artibus Foundation’s programme of short and long-term residencies exist to support artistic activity.
Set amid the natural beauty of Snäcksund in Tammisaari, c. 100 km South-West of Helsinki, is Pro Artibus’ The Villa and The Croft residency programmes. There is an opportunity here for undisturbed engagement in artistic work and research, along with development without the demand for specific end results. The Foundation has a three-year artist residency in Vasa in collaboration with the teacher training program at Åbo Akademi University. The goal of the residency is to create models for how contemporary art and artists can be intregrated into teaching in general education. In Korpo the Foundation has a new residency in cooperation with Åbo Akademi University’s station for marine biology and Archipelago Centre Korpoström.
The Pro Artibus Foundation collaborates with HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme and Frame Contemporary Art Finland to support Ukrainian artists fleeing, due to the ongoing war in Ukraine, by offering the Snäcksund Croft as a Solidarity Residency. Already agreed residency stays, within the regular program will be completed according to an adjusted arrangement, in agreement with each artist. More information here
