Takahuhti Artists Residence

010-420 2040

The Takahuhti artists residence is kept by Tampere Artists Association and it is open for artists year round. There is no scholarship on behalf of the Association, therefore the artist must pay rent for the residence. The residency periods are from 2 weeks onwards, and the apartment houses 1-3 people (one double bed and one single bed).

The applications for the residence periods must be sent to the office of Tampere Artists Association by email: info@tampereen-taiteilijaseura.fi.

The work studio is a spacious room of abt. 40 sqms with a table and an easel. Living quarters contain two rooms. One room is an open hallway with an sleeping alcove (double bed) and a closet. The other room contains a kitchen as well as a single bed, night stand, table with four chairs, cupboard, sink, refrigerator, washing machine, microwave oven, coffeemaker, electric kettle and dishes. Shower room is elsewhere in the building.

The fees vary upon the duration of the residency. 2 weeks: 280 euros, 1 month: 440 euros for one person and 470 euros for 2-3 persons.

The Association has working facilities also in Artcenter Maltinranta at the center of Tampere, where the visiting artist can rent work periods by separate request. These facilities include metal workshop and versatile graphics workshops where the artist can do intaglio, silk screen and wood cut printing as well as litography.
