Ateljé Stundars – Who are We?

Ateljé Stundars, an international art residency founded in 1998, is a member of Res Artis: Worldwide Network of Arts Residencies and FAIRE, the Finnish Artist Residency Network.

Ateljé Stundars is run by KulturÖsterbotten, a division of the SÖFUK Federation of Swedish Municipalities in Ostrobothnia for Education and Culture (Svenska Österbottens förbund för utbildning och kultur, SÖFUK). SÖFUK, a joint municipal organization with fourteen member municipalities, is also in charge of the vocational education (Yrkesakademin i Österbotten) and the regional theatre (Wasa Teater) in Swedish-speaking Ostrobothnia.

Ateljé Stundars operates in conjunction and close co-operation with an open-air museum and centre of culture and art, the Stundars Museum, in the village of Solf in Korsholm, Finland.

For 2024, we have invited three Guest Artists to live and work at our residence for a period of four months each.

What Do We Offer?

We offer our artists a peaceful rural environment with an excellent chance to concentrate on creative work. As of 2022, we invite three artists to live and work at our residence for a period of four (4) months each. There is only one artist staying with us at a time.

Our location and the facilites we offer are excellent for visual artists, painters, photographers and other artists who seek a peaceful place to concentrate on their work. Many of our artists have found great inspiration in the Stundars environment and in the surrounding nature.

We provide our artists with a studio and an apartment, both rent-free. The studio, right in the heart of the Stundars Museum area, is an excellent place to work for instance for a visual artist. The two-bedroom apartment just a stone’s throw away from the studio is fully furnished and equipped. 

A residency at Ateljé Stundars is free of charge. Our artists are paid a grant of 11 Euros a day to cover expenses for artist’s supplies and materials.

Where Can You Find Us?

Ateljé Stundars is located in the village of Solf (in Finnish: Sulva) in Korsholm (in Finnish: Mustasaari), Ostrobothnia on the west coast of Finland.

The street address of the residence is: Stundarsvägen 5, FIN-65450 Solf, Finland.

What Do We Expect?

We expect our artists to join us with a solid work plan and a strong motivation to fulfill it. We strongly encourage all our artists also to engage in out-reaching activities and arrange artists talks, work shops, open studio events, exhibitions et cetera, both for the artist community in the region and for the general public. We expect all our Guest Artists to deliver at least one (1) Artist Talk (digital), either to fellow artists and/or art students or to the general public, during their time at our residence.

We expect our artists to pay all their travel expenses to and from our residence as well as their living expenses while staying with us – the grant of 11 Euros a day is for artist’s supplies and materials only. We also expect our artists to have sufficient health insurance
