NEW: 1 year residency "Four Seasons"
Longer residency gives a great possibility to live on the island and experience the change in nature: light summer months towards quiet dark winter and then towards lighter times again!
We encourage a dialog between the visiting artists, both national and international quests and a dialog with local people and the environment.
Our special area is the unique archipelago nature, with the nearby Archipelago National Park and biosphere area. We have light summer nights May-July. Autumn deep darkness, star nights and possibly ice at winter time often Feb-March and frozen sea when a heavy winter – AARK has something specific with nature around the year. Our location is by the seaside and nearby forest.
Our residency can offer a quiet retreat as well a more social setting – depending on the artists needs and other art professionals visiting.
