Artist Residency Swap
Artist Residency Swap – ARS is a new kind of artist residency platform offering supported residency swaps between Finland and the UK. ARS is an initiative of Anni Fahler and Timo Wright, with an aim is to create a practical and flexible artist residence platform which can serve a greater number of artists and cultural workers in different life situations. The Finnish Cultural Institute in London supports travelling costs with up to 150€ if the artist chooses to fly, and up to 300€ if the artist chooses to travel without flying (e.g. with train and ferry). Artist Residency Swap wants to offer all artists and creatives the chance to take part in a new kind of artist residency platform regardless of their age, gender(s), social class or position in the art world.
