If you are a Baltic or Nordic artist we could have a sponsored place for you in our Summer We Go Public program happening this summer.

Nes Artist Residency is a contributing member to The Baltic-Nordic Network of Remote Art & Residency Centres. The Network is awarding 1 artist a residency place at Nes for the month of September 2013. You will be provided accomodation and studio space at Nes Artist Residency and be involved in our Summer We Go Public program. Travel, art supplies, and living expenses are to be covered by the artist.

From June to September Nes will host artists interested in public, live art, ephemeral practice and engaged work in contemporary fields of artistic practice. This summer we are stepping up to present new live, performance, engaged and/or temporary public works that create a vibrant artistic community visible in the streets of our fishing village. For more information on the program see the summer blog:
