Welcome to apply for 1 - 12 months residency! Even shorter visits possible depending on timing. We are looking for Art Professionals artists / researchers from all disciplines for whom the archipelago nature and the surrounding seaside could be an interesting area to contemplate or a theme to work on. We can offer time for thinking and for experiments without a pressure to produce a new work. Artistic process needs often time to develop. Longer stay offers time to make deeper connections even with our local community. Mark clearly how long stay you apply 1-12 months. NEW: 1 year residency "Four Seasons" Longer residency gives a great possibility to live on the island and experience the change in nature: light summer months towards quiet dark winter and then towards lighter times again! We encourage a dialog between the visiting artists, both national and international quests and a dialog with local people and the environment. Our special area is the unique archipelago nature, with the nearby Archipelago National Park and biosphere area. We have light summer nights May-July. Autumn deep darkness, star nights and possibly ice at winter time often Feb-March and frozen sea when a heavy winter – AARK has something specific with nature around the year. Our location is by the seaside and nearby forest. Our residency can offer a quiet retreat as well a more social setting – depending on the artists needs and other art professionals visiting.
