Kunstkollektivet 8B

Name of Residency: Kunstkollektivet8b

Located in scenic surroundings close to beach and forest and only an hour’s drive from Copenhagen, you will find the newly renovated merchant house, which is home to The Art Collective 8B. 8B is a newly formed communal house and workshop for ceramicists and textile designers, which is driven by local volunteers in cooperation with artists living in Odsherred.

The vision for 8B is to offer a communal house and professional workshop in quiet surroundings for ceramists and textile artists, who wish to develop on a professional and personal level.

We offer three residency programs within ceramic and textile: a program for design and crafts, a program for fine arts and a program for public art. To each of the programs there is connected professional networks and a professional mentor will be assigned each resident.

As a resident of 8B you will be assigned a private room, a workshop space that you can organise and access to lovely communal areas. All in all, this creates a calm and informal space for creativity. It is possible to apply for a stay in The Art Collective 8B for a period of 2-12 months four times pr year. Deadlines are: 28th of January, 28th of May, 28th of July and 28th of October. https://kunstkollektivet8b.dk/en/application/


Residency Programme since: 2019
Description of Organisation:

The Art Collective 8B saw the light of day in 2018, when the local merchant house in the village of Unnerud was put up for sale and the locals quickly formed a charitable association and bought the house. The locals had a desire to use the old merchant house in order to create a more vibrant atmosphere in the village and at the same time help young artists on their way to creating a career. Local volunteers worked together with several artists from Odsherred and Copenhagen and started planning what today has become The Art Collective 8B. https://kunstkollektivet8b.dk/en/about8b/
