Since its foundation in the year 2015, AARK has hosted hundreds of artist in residency from all around the world, we are so proud that all of them have chosen the Archipelago Art Residency in Korpo.
The residency feels like a big family for most of our visitors, they enjoy the inspiration that comes with the day-to-day contact with other artists and the proximity to Nature. They also love the passion that Renja and Benkku invest in making them feel welcomed and integrated into the small community of the island.
The building that host the residency is quite unique in Korpo. Built-in the late 50s, it was home for the ferry crew and their families. The combination of intense red and white and the fact that it is located just by the ferry makes this building an iconic and recognizable place. But what the resident artists generally love the most is the proximity to Nature, as it is located 100 meters from the seashore, and surrounded by forest.
