LIGHTHOUSE RESIDENCY

The residency programme for Finnish artists in Brighton is hosted by Lighthouse, a digital culture agency, supporting, commissioning and exhibiting work by artists and filmmakers. The residency is organised in collaboration with HIAP - Helsinki International Artist Programme and Finnish Institute in London.

Lighthouse connects new developments in arts, culture and technology. Based in Brighton, it supports, connects and shares new works of art, film, music, design and other new forms of creativity, that explore the social, cultural, political, environmental and economic effects of new technologies on our lives. Lighthouse has worked with artists, makers  and thinkers such as Metahaven, Holly Herndon, Basia Lewandowska Cummings, Kuedo, Lars TCF Holdhus, Eleni Ikoniadou, Jananne al-Ani, Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Hito Steyerl and Nathan Jurgenson.

For this residency, Lighthouse is looking for an artist who explores, challenges and shapes today’s connected world in new, critical and personal ways.

In 2015, one artist from Finland will be selected for a three-month residency at Lighthouse, Brighton. Lighthouse offers a working space for the artist and an opportunity to present his/her practise as part of Lighthouse's programme of public events, such as screenings, performances or installations. The total budget for travel, living and accommodation costs is 7400 €. The budget for materials and other direct production costs is approximately 2500 €.

The residency in Brighton will take place in September-November, 2015.

The deadline for the applications is March 31, 2015. The results of the  selection process are communicated to all applicants in due time.
