AiR Assens Open Call

Assens Art Council would hereby like to invite professional working artists to apply for a month’s free residence within the theme of caring for the planet, ecology and sustainability. The residency is from Saturday 31st August 2019 until Sunday 29th September 2019.


Assens Art Council has three sites with residency and atelier facilities at its disposal: Thurup Hus, Naarup Sawmill and Dreslette School.

A jury, consisting of the project manager, Jørgen Svenstrup, and three members of Assens Art Council, will review applications and select amongst the candidates. The jury will award priority to applicants who show particular interest in working with the following themes: the state of the planet, nature, ecology and sustainability.

During the residency period, it is expected that you are willing to give two power-point talks in public for a fee of DKK 3000 (400 Euro). (The talks may be identical.) It is also expected that you are willing to communicate with the press. Furthermore, Assens Art Council has an ambition to create contacts between the Artist in Residence and local artists and art institutes and that you must therefore be open to an interested audience. Further information about the terms can be found here.

The application is online, with deadline 1st March 2019.
