This is a jubilee year for the Saari Residence, which has been in operation for ten years. In honour of the anniversary, we want to highlight the work of the artists and scholars working at the residency, provide information on the events and functions to be arranged during the year, and introduce the manor’s yard, garden and local history. Throughout the year, we will publish articles on the Saari Residence 10 years website on the activities at the residence under the following themes: The Spirit of the Manor, Peaceful Working Environment, and By the Well. We will also publish information on the programme of the jubilee year: about Saareke, the communal space of Mynämäki and the Meet the Artist events. In the Artists and Their Work section, we will present our alumni and their activities.
