Back to Basics is a 1 month residency programmes taking place over the months of July – September 2019 in Hämeenkyrö Finland. The residency is open to artists of all disciplines.
The aim of the residency is to give artists the opportunity to clear their mind, get back to focus and (re)discover the very basis of their creative practice. Through the residency artists are encouraged to ask themselves a series of questions:
“What are the fundamental elements and ideas behind my work?”
“What is the purpose in doing what I'm doing?”
“Where do I take it from here?”
In this residency program, participants are encouraged to not have a predetermined project plan to follow, but to arrive with an open mind and dedicate their time at the residency for on-site observations, ideas, conversations, self-reflection and development.
With support from the program structure and other participants, Back to Basics provides an intensive residency experience far away from everyday distractions, surrounded by peaceful and beautiful nature.
The deadline for applications is 10 January 2019. You can read more about the residency and apply online here.
