We welcome applications from professional artists regardless of their discipline, background, or gender.
This residency is for artists that do not live in Trondheim.

Residency: January and/or February 2024

WHAT we offer
A full equipped studio apartment during your residency period. The apartment is located in the former gymnasium building just across the courtyard from the main building. This contains: 120 cm wide bed, bed linen and towels, dishwasher, refrigerator and freezer, fully equipped kitchen, laundry room and storage room if needed.
24/7 access to joint workshops for wood, metal, printmaking, analogue photography and a kiln.
Possibility to rent project rooms (50 and 90 sqm).
Possibility to have guests (NOK 50,- p/ night), free for children under 2 years old.
January stay: additional large studio of 50sqm on the 1st floor  of the main building with large windows facing the park (west).

Other expenses, such as living costs, travel, materials, insurance and transport must be covered by the artists themselves. We encourage all applicants to apply for funding in their home countries.
Residency artists are expected to do a short artist talk/reading/concert/performance etc. during the stay.
As we are running the residency on limited administrative resources, selected artists must be prepared to be self reliant at times. We will do our best to facilitate contacts, network and local collaborative partners so that artists can achieve what they have set out to do for their stay. Trondheim is a small and friendly city and it is easy to get in touch with the local art community.
We do not have elevators in any of our buildings.
Unfortunately, there is no possibility to exhibit your work at BABEL visningsrom for kunst.
