Art residencies for artists and cultural workers in Finland


Four Finland-based art organisations are offering residencies and accommodation for artists and art professionals who are fleeing from Ukraine or who have been displaced due to the war in Ukraine. In collaboration with Frame Contemporary Art Finland, HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme, Connecting Points programme and Saari Residence, both short and long stays in Finland are provided for individuals and families.

We are open for residency requests as long as there are available places in the two residencies. Our priority is to respond to the urgent need for accommodation for artists and art professionals.

The residencies are located in Helsinki at the residence of HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme and in Mynämäki, Southwest Finland, at the Saari Residence. The residency covers the travel and living costs of the residents. The residency period can last from 1 week up to 3 months. The family residency can be extended to four people.

We stand for immediate peace in Ukraine. We encourage everyone to contribute any way they can, whether it’s demonstrating, donating, sharing information or providing other kinds of support.
