Titanik A.i.R open call for April – December 2024
Application period 9th – 29th FEBRUARY 2024
In 2024, the Titanik artist-in-residence programme is happy to host process and research residencies for artists who work in the intersections of sound and performance arts, and are looking for an opportunity to live and work in Turku for up to two months. The residency programme aims to provide time and space for artists to focus on their work without the pressure of presenting a final work. However, if an artist wishes to share their work-in-progress in the format of a workshop, an open studio, a performance, a screening, or a talk, we will be glad to organise it.
Titanik A.i.R. programme has been run by the Arte Artists’ Association since 2006. It is hosted by Titanik, a contemporary art space located in Turku, on the Southwestern coast of Finland. Titanik aims to create a space for unexpected encounters, artistic interchange and critical discussion. No form of harassment or discrimination is tolerated at Titanik. In addition to exhibitions, Titanik hosts a variety of open public and project-based events, such as concerts and performances.
What Titanik offers:
For the duration of the residency, an artist or a duo is hosted in a studio (20m2) adjoining the contemporary art space Titanik and library, located in the city centre of Turku. Residents are welcome to use Titanik’s audiovisual equipment during their stay (availability depends on Titanik’s exhibition programme). The residents are also provided free accommodation in a cosy, fully equipped 25 m2 studio apartment close to the city centre, within walking distance from Titanik. The apartment is suitable for one person or a couple. Unfortunately our current studio apartment is not wheelchair accessible.
The residency programme is currently self-financed and during their stay, the artists fund their travel as well as living and working expenses, including food, transportation and materials. We will gladly provide invitation and reference letters for funding applications that accepted applicants might apply for and we are actively working on changing the material conditions of the residency.
fill in the application form:
- send us a motivational letter up to 1000 characters of what you might want to work on during your residency time and why you wish to do that in Turku
- and a link to a sample of recent work (e.g. website/Vimeo) and your CV (max. 2 pages)
- do let us know if there is anything that we might work on specifically to make your stay in Turku more accessible.
We accept applications in Finnish and English. For more information, please, contact Saskia Suominen at firstname.lastname@example.org
The residents for 2024 are selected by the Arte board: Anastasia (A) Khodyreva, Outimaija Hakala, Anna Tahkola, Rooa Paldanius, Isto Rahkila, Inari Sandell and Antti Tolvi.
