1-Year-Long Residency

1-year-long residency for Nordic-Baltic* artist

September 2018 – August 2019
Deadline: 15th March, 2018

Artists are invited to submit a proposal to stay one year in the residency. This is a challenging invitation to root oneself within one place while other residents are changing every 1-2 months. Artist in exchange should contribute 25% of working time towards artistic reflection and the development of the residency programme. 
Support: Studio costs (400 EUR/month) and basic living expenses with a modest grant are covered. Production expenses are subject to negotiation.

7 years old residency programme is looking for dedicated artist who would like to commit and spend up to 1 year in the residency programme, while other 4 residents are constantly changing every 1-2 months. We consider ourselves a slow institution in the high speed and saturated art ecosystem. We are located in a pine forest next to a small resort town Nida and surrounded by National Park of Curonian Spit based on 99km long sand dunes spit locked in between two waters (Baltic Sea and Curonian lagoon). Although being remote, we are connected with local, national and international contemporary art networks.

Residency starts on September 2018 when the climate is mild and Baltic Sea is still welcoming swimmers. Running through the short days, some freeze, snow and probably frozen lagoon during winter, the residency will burst during spring towards high summer season with thousands of beach-goers.


The goal of the residency is reflect on the residency programme itself with an opportunity to contribute to exhibition and/or publication.


More coming soon.
