This AiR program focus on interdisciplinary projects within music, dance, film, performing arts, and literature, in addition to curators and art critics.
We are open for applications from professional artists that already work with interdisciplinary projects or would like to challenge their own practice.
From 2 weeks to 3 months.
Next open call for 2025/2026 residencies will be announced in 2023.
WHAT we offer
A full equipped studio apartment during your residency period. The apartment is located in the old 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 ceramics;
Possibility to rent project rooms (50 and 90 sqm).
Opportunity to apply for an event at BABEL visningsrom for kunst in connection with the residency.
Possibility to have guests (NOK 50,- p/ night), free for children under 2 years old.
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.
