The Åland Archipelago Guest Artist Residence in Kökar was created in 1977, first for an international artist exchange project with Ireland and Catalonia in1997.

The center offers artists who want to find inspiration from nature a great opportunity to develop their work. The basic idea behind the creation of this center is to experience a new surrounding for creative work. The center also wishes to improve artist's ability to pay attention to constructed natural environment and, eventually, to find new ways for interaction between artists, society and environment.

The center is welcoming all visual artists and craftsmen.

Transportation to Kökar: Ferries (Ålandstrafiken Tel +358 18 525 100) from Långnäs on the Åland mainland and Galtby Korppoo archipelago of Turku from mainland Finland.

Please send a freely formulated application, work plan + CV to reach us by the end of February for the period from May to April, next year. Please state the preferred duration of your stay.

We look forward to seeing you!
