The Villa is a three-year residency programme aimed at artists and curators.
During their stay participants work in close collaboration with the Pro Artibus Foundation within a framework of projects related to the Foundation’s exhibition, collection or audience work. The programme includes living and working grants. The Villa was built in 1857 and houses two dwellings. The grounds include a detached building with two studios for recipients of The Villa’s grants and a workroom that can be used by participants in The Croft programme.
The artists-in-residence at Villa Snäcksund receive a working grant from The Swedish Cultural Foundation in Finland. Fastighetsstiftelsen för Svenska kulturfonden (property foundation for The Swedish Cultural Foundation in Finland) owns and maintains the residency estate.
The residency artists in 2023–2025 are:
