Kemijärvi Artists Residency sr

+358 400 692 804

The purpose is that the visiting artists among their own programmes also take part in developing the local cultural and artistic projects.

Residency Programme since: 2006
Description of Organisation:

Kemijärvi Sculpture and Culture Foundation has renovated an old, unused dairy house in the centre of the town for the use of international artist guests. The old Dairy House (established in 1929) is one of the few houses in Kemijärvi which survived the Second World War.

The renovation and modification works were completed by the end of 2005.

The house will essentially be used for the international artist exchange programmes.

The traditional Kemijärvi Woodsculpting Symposium will also be part of the Kemijärvi Residency programme.
