Druskininkai - Hållnäs Art Residency exchange, Sweden, August 16-30, 2021



Lithuanian composers and sound artists are invited to apply for the Druskininkai - Hållnäs art residency exchange program in Sweden.

The duration of residency is 14 days, August 16-30, 2021.

Artist-in-Residence will receive a €400 one-time scholarship and covered travel expenses (up to €200). AiR will be given free accommodation for creative activities and living, as well as administrative and tutorial assistance, if wished for. AiR should take care of their health insurance. The AiR will get the opportunity to present their work at the end of the stay. Composers and sound artists are invited to submit their ideas and project for the residency, before the 31st May.

Hållnäs peninsula is a beautiful area with a long, untouched rocky coastline, quiet old villages and good trails and roads for walking and cycling. The nearest town with a train station is Tierp. It is a very quiet place. The open sea can be found a five minutes’ bike ride away. 

AiR will have their own studio space and private room in a guest cabin, which are cosy but rustic. Kitchen and bathroom is shared with other AiR present. The cabins have wireless mobile broadband of slightly limited capacity. There are bikes for guests to use.
