Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture Artist-in-Residence Programme AiR has an open call for a new artist. The deadline for applying is 15 August 2013.

The Aalto AiR programme follows the practices of the best international universities and is, notably, the first of its kind in the Nordic countries. Aalto University’s commitment to enhancing cross-disciplinary dialogue is also visible in the artist-in-residence programme. Its purpose is to create a new kind of cooperation model within the university and to increase collaboration between art, science, technology and business.

Aalto AiR programme provides dedicated and internationally active artists with a unique opportunity to work with a truly collaborative community of researchers, students and staff and to avail themselves of Aalto University’s resources for artistic and creative productions for a two-year period.

The programme invites artists to Helsinki from January 2014 to December 2015. During this time, the artist will pursue his/her own creative project while at the same time engaging with the Aalto University community in various ways: collaborations between departments and schools, periods of teaching, workshops and public presentations. The outcome of the residence period—a work of art, an exhibition, a film, or a project of another kind—will be premiered in Helsinki.

The notion of ‘artist’ encompasses all the areas of the school’s expertise: visual artists, architects, designers, filmmakers, graphic designers, photographers and researchers. The aim of the residence scheme is to foster far-reaching dialogue between students and professionals across disciplines, and in so doing, to provide special opportunities for the artists and students in question and to enhance the international visibility of Aalto University.
