For Saari residents

Congratulations on your residency place! As the residency period nears, you will receive more information about working and living at the Saari Residence, as well as about the residence itself. The Saari Residence’s historical surroundings, versatile workspaces and peaceful location near a nature reserve and wetlands offer you an excellent opportunity to focus undisturbed on your creative work during your residency period. During each individual residency period, professional artists from different fields of art and possibly one researcher working under a Kone Foundation grant will be working and living at the Saari Residence, and during the summer all premises are reserved for groups. The Saari Residence’s Community Artist works at the residence year-round.

As the residency period nears, you will receive more information on working and living at the Saari Residence, as well as about the residence itself and taking the COVID-19 into consideration. Saari Residence staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
