Fiskars artist-in Residence offers 1-2 months residencies in a rural village known for its exceptional creative community surrounded by beautiful nature, vast forests and clear watered lakes.

This year we especially welcome applications with projects reflecting on the urgent challenges posed by the climate crisis. The aim is that the residency, visiting artists and events actively engage in a dialogue with the upcoming cooperative summer exhibition in Fiskars – Meadow – focusing on these themes.

Like the meadow, the exhibition reminds of the necessity to take time to care, even in the face of the escalating urgency of climate crisis. It encourages slowing down and attunement of senses to the environment, which we are an irreducible part of. It focuses attention on the sustainability of everyday practices and values, while envisioning potential alternative paths towards the future.
