We encourage interaction with the local community and workshops or similar activities are invited but not demanded.

During the residency project we wish to see some activity on our social media accounts at least once a week and a final report including text and visual material is also required. 

As this is a summer holiday residence, artists are also invited to spend part of the time in residence relaxing and enjoying summer in Loviisa. 

Loviisa is a small town on the coast of Finland, a swedish-finnish bilingual community with a small but dynamic art scene. The residency is in an shared apartment in the city center with 3 bedrooms and a shared studio space. Selected artist(s) will have access to 1 or 2 bedrooms there will be one other artist staying in the residence apartment at the same time.
