The Arts Residency OUR AIR, is located in a peaceful rural milieu, close to nature, in between Jakobstad and Nykarleby, in Western Finland.
The residency is intended for individual professional artists of all disciplines and all nationalities, and anyone who’s creative, adventurous, and willing to come to Ostrobothnia to create new bodies of work that are informed by their experience here. During the residencies artists get the opportunity to deepen their artistic practice, explore different themes and develop new ideas and works. OUR AIR offers an excellent opportunity to focus undisturbed on creative work in the scenic surroundings of Ostrobothnia, as well as opportunities for interaction with other resident artists.
The Artist-in-Residency program is run by Anneli, Jukka and Rita. Our aim is to reach out to the general public to incite cultural dialogue in the field of contemporary art and the current society.
OUR AIR have got support from
Arts Council of Ostrobothnia, Finnish Cultural Foundation, Central Ostrobothnia Regional Fund, Institut Français,
Konstsamfundet, Otto A. Malm Foundation and Svenska Kulturfonden.
