International Residency Exchanges

HIAP has international residency exchange programmes that enable Finnish artists and curators to have residencies abroad, as well as offers residencies in Finland for artists and curators 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.

The conditions may vary between the programmes, but in most cases the residencies are arranged on a reciprocal basis and provide the selected artist with a residential studio, the cost of travel from and to Helsinki, and a working grant. For more information on a specific open call and instructions on how to apply, please visit the open calls section on our website.
