Sandnes Artist in Residence

Foreign and norwegian professional artists are welcome to spend up to three months in Sandnes town, south of Stavanger.

Sandnes City Council and Rogaland County Council, offer a residency to professional artists. The artist can be from abroad, a Norwegian national or a regional artist wanting an alternative project space. The offer consists of a 1-3 months residency in a rent-free studio with accommodation situated in the city of Sandnes in the municipality of Rogaland, close to the city of Stavanger.

We offer a one to three month residency at AiR Sandnes in a rent-free studio and additional rent-free accommodation. The studio is situated in the same building as several other artist studios at Stasjon K.

The flat is located at the city end of the largest park in Sandnes, Sandvedparken, about a five-minute walk from the city centre and studio space. In addition to a one-person bed the flat has a sofa that can turn into a two-person bed. On those premises we can accommodate for collaborators, a couple, or possibly a family of three.

The studio is in the middle of the city centre in Sandnes by Stasjon K-art studios, where a group of 14 professional artists have their working space. The studio is 60 m2 with adjacent small kitchen and toilet.
