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, right next to Kinokino – Centre for Art and Film, which will open September 9th 2009.
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.
AiR Sandnes provide a mobile phone with a Norwegian telephone number / network card and mobile broadband that can be used in both the studio and flat. The artist will also have access to stationary computers in a building close to the studio.
