Air Frosterus provides artists the time and peace to focus on their work. The beautiful location allows the guests to get inspired by Finnish nature and the four seasons. The length of a residency period can vary between one and six months. At the moment we have an open call, so you can fill and send the application anytime.
We read applications as soon as they arrive and send You a message within few weeks. Due to Covid-19 pandemia we are not booking artists from abroad to the physical residence at the moment, but will do so as soon as the situation gets better. Notice that You can also apply for virtual residency!
The residency programme is individually crafted for each artist. The outcome can be an exhibition, a public art work, a publication or something else, according to the project plan. Workshops and community projects are welcomed as a part of the programme, or as the main outcome.
We thrive to support our artists in their work and we assist them in planning and managing their projects. A gallery space at the centre of Kärsämäki or an exhibition space at the local library is provided for the artists to exhibit in. The opportunities to cooperate with the local artists and the community are good.
Remember to fill in your project plan and state if you are interested in arranging an exhibition, teaching courses or arranging workshops. We encourage all the artists to choose two possible periods of stay.
Artist selections are made by the board of Kattilakoski cooperative. Selected artists are informed personally.
