Lauttasaari Manor Residence

The Red Villa located in the courtyard of the Lauttasaari Manor includes a refurbished residency apartment for artists and researchers. Finnish organisations and actors in the fields of art and science, who want to invite a foreign art or science expert to Finland for a cooperation project, are welcome to apply for the residency. Residency guests are selected through an open application process, which is organised in connection with the Foundation’s general application procedure every year.

The Lauttasaari Manor Residence supports the international work opportunities and networking of professionals in the fields of art and science by collaborating with the organisation or actor that coordinate the residency visit, making it possible for foreign experts of art and science to live and work in Finland.

The residency is aimed for Finnish organisations and actors in the arts as well as in the fields supported by the Foundation (social, human and environmental sciences), who can apply for the residency for their international guest. The partner can be, for example, a research unit, think tank, artist(s) or curator(s), art gallery, orchestra, festival or other art event.

The residency is designed to create deep collaboration between local art and science actors and international actors in various fields. The Foundation will take care of the arrangements relating to the residency and provide support in the practical arrangements of the visit. As well as an apartment, the residency includes a work grant.

Residency guests are selected through an open application process, which is organised in connection with the Foundation’s general application procedure every year. More detailed information on how to apply, can be found from our guidelines for grant applicants.
