Titanik artist-in-residence programme (Turku, Finland) offers residencies for artists working in the intersections of sound and contemporary art. The application period is 9 March – 6 April 2021, and the call is for the following time periods:
The length of each residency is 1–3 months.
Titanik A.i.R. programme is run by Arte Artists’ Association in Turku, southwestern coast of Finland. Titanik A.i.R has been running since 2006, shifting its focus to sound in 2013, which made it the first sound art residency in Finland.
We provide a work space (20m2), which is adjoined to the contemporary art space Titanik, located in the city centre of Turku by the river Aura. Residents are welcome to use Titanik’s audiovisual equipment during their stay (however, availability depends on Titanik’s separate exhibition programme). The residents are also provided with free accommodation in a cosy, fully equipped flat in the city centre, within walking distance from Titanik. The flat is suitable for one person or a couple. The artists must fund their travels as well as their living and working expenses, including food, transportation and materials.
The residency programme aims to provide time and space for artists to focus on their work. We also wish each selected resident will present their practice during one public event, which may be e.g. a short exhibition at the Titanik A.i.R. studio space, an open studio event, a screening, a talk, or a performance.
The application consists of:
One pdf-file (max size 4 MB) with
- 1) Short motivation statement (max one page) with preferred dates of residency, and possible interest in hosting an event (e.g. performance, short exhibition, artist talk)
- 2) CV (max two pages)
- 3) samples of recent work as one link (e.g. website, dropbox)
- no attached images/files
Everything listed above must be provided in order to complete the application. Only pdf files are accepted and all work samples other than one compiled link will be dismissed. Please send your submission by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date is 6 April 2021.
The residents for 2022 are selected by the Arte board.
We look forward to hearing from you!
