Things are a little bit different at our house this year...
Due to Covid-19 the Open Call for 2020 has been cancelled.
As we host international artist we have decided to,
'take the safe before the unsafe', as the expression goes in Swedish
and not host a residency programme the summer of 2020.
Having this said, we are still working in the periphery.
The house is standing taller then ever and we have some time to make it
even better for the future.
The Rävemåla Residency Programme is an artist-in-residency programme located in the rural Swedish countryside. Life is a little bit different at our house, we're tucked away from asphalt roads and noise pollution, but still less than an hour away from the historic city of Kalmar and the Baltic Sea. Surrounding us you'll find forests, lakes, rivers and beautiful rural scenescapes through which we offer our residents the unique proposal of time, space and materials with which they can realise a specific artistic project.
Meet some of the very wonderful people who have stepped through our residency's doors...
We are thrilled to announce our partner Ålems Sparbank has decided to support us yet another year - a neighbour both physically and in terms of shared ideas and mindset.
Ålems Sparbank has been supporting local organisations for a long time and this year, thanks to the bank's generous help, we'll be able to manage our residency programme upkeep and host one artist's grant. You can read all about the Ålems Sparbank's wonderful contributions to local life here.
We hope this will be a long and happy friendship :)
