Art Inside Out


Art Inside Out is a nomadic institution for artist-in-residence in all art forms and genres. Artists are invited to explore the possibilities for their own art practices, as well as delve into new collaborations, with the county of Halland (southern Sweden) as a playing field.

Through an open process that leaves room for the unforeseen, there is the opportunity for new discourse, where art generates creative solutions and new perspectives. Our residencies are open for both international and national artists working with all forms of artistic expressions. We offer an opportunity for a creative practitioner to come to work in Halland for a set period of time with support that includes full funding, travels, technical facilities, accommodation and work premises.

Since the start in January 2016 we have had six residencies in different parts of Halland County, and have hosted about thirty artist from a various fields of artistic expressions, including poetry and design.

Each residency is uniquely curated, and it starts processes that can carry on long after the residence artists have left the site. That is one of the aims with the flexible art institute Art Inside Out that is operated as a partnership between the Halland County and its six municipalities.

Residency Programme since: 2016
Description of Organisation:

Art Inside Out is a nomadic residency program. The core personnel are an artistic director and an art & culture producer. But with every residency we build a team of co-workers. Connected to every residency are also different filmmakers (or sound artists) whom follow the process and document it. All the residencies are uniquely curated, so what kind of team is working with the artists during the residency depends on many factors.
