Open Call - North AiR: Expanding Entanglements

The "North AiR: Expanding Entanglements" residency explores environmentally conscious ways of mobility and production within the arts! We are seeking applications from Finland and Scotland based artists to undertake a fully supported extended three month residency spanning three different locations, ecologies and organisations in Finland or Scotland.

The application deadline is December 7th ! 

Scotland based artists please apply via

Finland based artists please apply via

The programme is delivered in partnership with MUSTARINDABioart SocietyKulttuuriKauppila Art Centre, Timespan and Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum and Arts Centre.

Spanning residency/arts organisations in Scotland and Finland, the residency and research cooperation fosters long term inquiries into each partner’s role and response-ability within the ecological crisis as we look towards a post-fossil culture with a trans disciplinary approach. As a key part of this research we are bringing together our resources and networks to think beyond dominant artist exchange models and look to question the role of artists’ residency in a time of climate breakdown.

We are inviting applications from artists who are based in Scotland with a view to participating in the Finnish programme, and artists based in Finland with a view to participating in the Scottish programme. Each artist will spend 3 consecutive months from April-June 2019, at each partner organisation in either Finland or Scotland.

The programme is supported by the North AiR network partners and the The Finnish Institute in London.

Application dates: 
26.11.2018 to 07.12.2018
