The Pro Artibus Foundation administrates the residency programs The Villa and The Croft in Tammisaari in Finland.
The Croft is a place for short periods of artistic or art-related research. The Croft building is adjoined to the Snäcksund The Villa residence. The residence programme The Croft, open to Nordic artists, curators, art critics and educators, is built around both invited projects and periodically announced open calls. Each residency is planned individually to match the needs of the project. Due to the diverse character of projects we facilitate both short and long stays (up to 2 months). Participants receive travel allowances for the most economical return journey to The Croft, plus production support according to need. The Croft also serves as a residency-in-residence programme under The Villa programme.
