Kristinestad Artists' Residency is a non-profit and artist/volunteer run organisation, anchored in the community of Kristinestad on the Finnish West coast. The residency programme is offered by the association Yelema in cooperation with the municipal cultural affairs office, the local art association Spectra and crafts association Hemslöjdsföreningen.

We would like to encourage reflection on issues and practices that are central to the local and Finnish context. We particularly welcome practitioners in visual arts, craft and design but also, for instance, musicians, writers and researchers.

In 2023, we will host artists for selected projects and workshops, but there will be no open call for that season. Please do not send us any applications or proposals for the time being.
