Persbo Studio artist-in-residence program offers a unique setting for artists, where they are offered time and space to contemplate and discover new approaches to their work. The Mission is available for stays of up to 2 weeks. Consideration is given to select cultural producers with diverse practices, although those with a sculptural foundation to their practice are favored. The artist in residence facilities are every year getting improved. Persbo Studio can offer space and time for artists to work with thier projects but a stay with the program means sharing all the facilities that Persbo Studio can offer with other artists and the founder. If you are interested to work with a project here please send an letter to the email adress below. As of today the residence is self-funded but there are funding possibilities to apply for. Introductions from artists who wish to make Persbo Studio of their interest in this program are very welcome to make contact.
