Open call : SCF Artist in Residence Program 2020

SCF invites Swedish artists practicing Swedish crafts (eg. glass blowing, wood craft, textile, etc.) every year for a maximum period of three months. During the period of stay at SCF the artist will work within his/her art field with the aim of creating art pieces and exchanging skills. In addition to the creation process, the artist will also hold seminars and workshops. Furthermore, the artist will take part in various events organized by SCF to promote cultural exchange.

 

Purpose of the program:

1) Introducing Swedish art crafts and their history, as well as the artist’s art and technique.

2) Exchanging knowledge and techniques between Swedish and Japanese artists.

3) Introducing Sweden as a country (artist’s hometown, general information, society, culture,customs and traditions).

4) Giving the artist a new source of inspiration through a longer stay in a different environment.
