Interested to be an artist in residence?

Seanse is a national creative development arena and meeting place for art production in all genres. We are located at Volda University College, with access to a broad competence environment within the arts, as well as suitable premises for artistic work.

Since 2004, we have had more than 608 national and international artists involved in 308 productions at our artists residencies. Seanse’s goal is to contribute to quality productions, skills development and innovation in art for and with children, young people and others.

Seanse offers:
• Good working conditions in own premises
• Guidance by mentors with artistic and pedagogical competence
• Participation in an interdisciplinary artist’s collegium
• Reimbursement, paid travel and accommodation.

The artist in residencies in 2020 will be held the weeks 24, 25, 42 and 43. We welcome all types of projects from idea to post-production, and both groups and individuals can apply. This year, we want to prioritize up to three stays for art projects aimed at children and young people with special needs, and three related to cultural heritage. All genres may be relevant for these.
In total, about 20 art projects will be granted a stay in 2020.
