Call for residency visits is now open at Kuusamo Arctic Residence Centre. 1-3 months residency periods available through a continuous open call. The applications should be submitted two months prior to the intended visit. We strive to process all applications within two weeks after submission.

June, July, and September 2023 are full. Unfortunately, we can not accept applications for these periods.

The Arctic Residence Centre at Kuusamo College offers professional artists, researchers, and nature photographers the possibility to work in a versatile environment in the northern nature city of Kuusamo.

Kuusamo College was founded in 1909, offering educational and accommodation services all year round for all age groups.

We can accommodate around a hundred people. Our residency guests are accommodated in single rooms with common kitchens and lounges. The monthly rent is 300 euros/month per person. Weekly cleaning, internet, and the use of workspaces are included.

Materials and personal expenses are not included. The college has its own canteen, offering daily meals, and our residency guests can purchase inexpensive lunch coupons.

After the completed the residency period we wish that the residency guests would present the projects they have working on. A presentation of each residency guest is published on our information channels.

Fill in your application here. Late applications are not processed. The selections are made by our expert panel. Artistic/scientific motivations, the quality of the work plan, and suitability for our residency are stressed.
