The Pro Artibus Foundation’s residency program at the Archipelago Centre Korpoström is organized in collaboration with Åbolands Skärgårdsstiftelse (Åboland Archipelago Foundation) and the Åbo Akademi marine biological research station. The residency is aimed for Swedish-speaking professional artists and curators working in Finland within the visual arts.
The residence is a pilot project, the purpose of which is to link environmental and marine research with art. The artist has a workroom at the Archipelago Centre and a residence in Lillstugan next to the centre. The Archipelago Centre Korpoström is a visitor center where science, nature, art and culture meet. The building serves as a base for Åbo Akademi University’s marine biological research in the Archipelago Sea, Metsähallitus’ activities in the Archipelago Sea National Park and the Biosphere Reserve’s educational activities, the Biosphere Academy. The residency period is six months.
The artist-in-residence at the Korpo Archipelago Residency receives a working grant from The Swedish Cultural Foundation in Finland.
