HIAP Residency Programme / 3 month residencies

HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme invites artists and other art practitioners to apply for residencies in Suomenlinna and Cable Factory for the years 2023-2024. The HIAP Residency Programme focuses on visual art but is open for art professionals from other disciplines as well. The programme offers time and support for developing new work in dialogue with the local art scene. The residency time can be used for open-ended research and experimentation, without the requirement to produce a finalised piece of work.

The 3 month residencies take place at HIAP Cable Factory live/work studios which are 60 sqm each, furnished, and include a working and living area with a kitchenette, a sleeping loft and a private bathroom. The studios can comfortably accommodate two adults or a small family. Please note that pets are not allowed in the apartments.

The 3 month residencies can be applied by artists and other art practitioners. The residency does not involve financial obligations or support (the resident does not have to pay a fee to HIAP, and there is no working grant, travel funding or production budget from HIAP).

The available residency periods for 3 month residencies are:
– Winter: 9 January – 9 April 2023
– Spring: 17 April – 17 July 2023
– Autumn: 14 August – 14 November 2023
– Winter: 8 January – 8 April 2024
