Name of Residency: AiR Ateljé Stundars, Korsholm, Finland

At Ateljé Stundars we offer our artists a peaceful rural environment with an excellent chance to concentrate on creative work. Every year we invite four artists to live and work at our residence for a period of three months each. There is only one artist staying with us at the time.

The residence operates in conjunction and close co-operation with an open-air museum and centre of culture and art, the Stundars Museum, in the village of Solf in Korsholm, Finland.

Our location and the facilities we offer are excellent for visual artists, painters, photographers and other artists who seek a peaceful place to concentrate on their work. Many of our artists have found great inspiration in the Stundars environment and in the surrounding nature.

It is also possible for our artists to co-operate with a professional theater, the regional Wasa Teater.

We provide our artists with a studio and an apartment, both rent-free. The studio, right in the heart of the Stundars Museum area, is an excellent place to work for instance for a visual artist. The two-bedroom apartment just a stone??s throw away from the studio is fully furnished and equipped.

Ateljé Stundars is run by KulturÖsterbotten, an organization working with the development of art and culture in Swedish-speaking Ostrobothnia, Finland.
