The Annual Art Act award for Safe Haven Helsinki residencies

We are very happy that Safe Haven Helsinki residencies received the Annual Art Act award!

The Annual Art Act award rewards people or organisations that boldly promote contemporary art both in Finland and abroad, challenge norms and increase the appreciation of art. The prize of €5000 is funded by the Finnish Fair Foundation. This year ArtHelsinki invited rapper and lyricist Paperi T to choose the winner from a list of preliminary selections made by the ArtHelsinki Advisory Board in cooperation with the Finnish Art Galleries Association.

Safe Haven Helsinki is co-organised by Perpetuum Mobile and HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme and funded by the City of Helsinki.
