Helsinki Design Residency 2019

Website: https://design.britishcouncil.org/blog/2019/mar/14/open-call-helsinki-design-residency-2019/

The British Council, in partnership with the Helsinki International Artist Programme(HIAP), Helsinki Design Week (HDW), Design Museum Helsinki (DM) and Strelka Institute, is seeking applications from practitioners to participate in the Helsinki Design Residency 2019 which will explore the theme The Melting Platform: Material Interactions. The Residency offers an opportunity for practitioners to explore and reflect on the evolving life and context of Helsinki as a Nordic capital. The residency focuses on stimulating new research and is open to a broad range of UK-based practitioners at the intersection of art, design and architecture, encouraging speculative and critical thinking and is an opportunity for the practitioner to create new connections with local designers, curators, researchers and design experts. The programme will include two stays in Helsinki: a two-week research visit in May/June 2019, and a production and presentation period of one month in August and September. Applicants must be UK-based creative practitioners or researchers (design, architecture, fashion, design writing, curatorial and cross-disciplinary work) who have a minimum of 2 years’/maximum of 10 years’ experience after graduation. The residency includes return flights to Helsinki, accommodation, a grant of £2,200, a production budget of £600 and mentoring advice and contacts in both London and Helsinki.
