HIAP has several international exchange residency programmes that enables Finnish artists and curator to have a residency period abroad as well as offers residencies in Finland for artists and curators worldwide. Exchange agreements are developed on a long-term and reciprocal basis with several city councils, residency centres, cultural organisations, art museums and galleries worldwide. The aim of the exchanges is to offer dialogue, collaboration and networking opportunities and to foster mutually beneficial cultural interaction between the participating countries and regions.
