The aim of the Malakta Artist in Residency (AiR) programme is to provide a creative space where artists can work, develop, share, interact and experiment.
Malakta is located in the middle of a beautiful and quiet countryside, and is a family friendly location. The residency is suitable for both individual artist and groups. We offer access to a range of studios and work facilities, and a place to meet with other creative people in a small collaborative community. We encourage applications from a wide range of artists of different cultural and geographic backgrounds. We are open for applications for all phases – from initial research to finishing works.
The Malakta AiR offers both a two bedroom fully furnished apartment and single rooms with access to shared kitchen and bathroom facilities. We offer access to extensive working facilities and equipment.
For selected artists we offer possibilities to hold artist talks, exhibitions, engage with community arts activities, realice collaborative projects and to experience the beautiful Ostrobothnian nature and culture.
