The IASPIS residency programme in Stockholm has nine places, four for Swedish-based and five for international artists in the field of visual and applied arts.

The residency programme aims at international exchange and is focused on exploratory artistic work, which can be both practical and theoretical. Swedish-based artists apply for the programme, international artists with activities outside Sweden are invited by IASPIS.

  • For three to six months, artists are offered the opportunity to work in their own studio, meet colleagues from Sweden and all over the world and take part in the entire IASPIS activities. The Artist in Residence has access to a studio in the Swedish Arts Grants Committee’s premises as well as a scholarship to cover the costs of subsistence, accommodation and expenses for the work.

    Swedish-based artists are responsible for arranging accommodation during their residency, international artists are offered accommodation. All artists in residence have the opportunity to take part in various IASPIS activities during the residency period. We arrange talks, meetings, study visits, travel, studio visits by visiting international curators and public events in various forms. The purpose of all these activities is to promote opportunities for artistic development, international outlook and exchange.

  • A residency in Stockholm can be applied for by any professional artist in the field of visual and applied arts who has their main activity in Sweden.

    International artists, who have their main activities outside Sweden, are invited by IASPIS following proposals from artist colleagues, curators, critics and other actors in the field of visual and applied arts.

  • Foreign artists are invited by IASPIS following proposals from artist colleagues, curators, critics and other actors in the field of visual and applied arts. Decisions on who to invite are made by the Visual Art Fund’s IASPIS delegation four times a year. Proposals can be submitted at any time using the form below. Normally, it takes at least a year between decision and possible stay since the programme plans well into the future.
