<nettime-ann> Closing soon! Call for artists - Ptarmigan residency program, Helsinki

just a little reminder -

Call for artist in residence projects, Ptarmigan project space, Helsinki.

Deadline: 15 May

Ptarmigan project space (Helsinki, Finland) is excited to announce a new residency programme for artists and cultural workers from the Baltic and Nordic regions (excluding Finland). We are seeking proposals from individuals and collectives who work to expand traditional structures of art and cultural production in creative and innovative ways.

Residencies will last for approximately two months each, taking place from July - December 2010. Our residency programme focuses on dialogue and exchange between visiting artists and the Helsinki-based audience. Preference will be given to proposals that respond to location, community and the environment. We encourage applicants to propose projects that include artist talks, workshops or other community based activity.

The residency offers:
   * A studio/working space - this may also function as a gallery space for exhibition of work, a seminar room, meeting place, or workshop space. High speed   internet.
   * Full kitchen facilities
   * Accommodation in a nearby apartment (within walking distance from the studio)
   * A stipend to cover subsistence costs
   * A materials budget
   * Travel costs to and from Helsinki

Applications are open to artists who reside in the Nordic and Baltic countries outside of Finland. This covers Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania and the autonomous areas of the Faroe Islands, Greenland and Åland.

Deadline is the 15th of May and decisions will be advised in early June.

This programme is made possible by The Nordic Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture administrated by the Nordic Culture Point.
