Arteles Creative Center runs annually 3–4 residency programs, welcoming over 130 selected artists per year. Our residency programs bring together creative minds & professionals from all over the world, from all fields of creativity.

The residency programs take place at Arteles Creative Center, in the beautiful landscapes of Hämeenkyrö, Finland. We host 11–14 artists per month, in carefully selected multidisciplinary groups. The residency periods last 1 or 2 months. Program details vary depending on the program.

Freedom for Creativity

The main value of Arteles is to give freedom for creativity. We provide our artists an inspiring and supportive environment, with no stress or pressure coming from the outside. We embrace long-term progress, personal growth and mindfulness, and therefore our focus is in the artist and their individual aims and being, not only in production and career.

Our facilities, staff and wide selection of creative equipment & gear support the artists' individual ways of working. We understand that creative process is always in a state of flux, and we encourage taking things bravely beyond the conventional – out of the box.
