We are inviting Finnish or Finland-based CURATORS, VISUAL ARTISTS, DESIGNERS, AND ARCHITECTS to submit their applications for the FCINY Residency Programs in New York for 2025.

The focus of the residency programs lies in networking and dialogue, individual artistic research, and creative work. Each residency includes housing, access to a local hosting organization, flights, and a monthly working grant of 800 EUR.

The programs are particularly suitable for artists and professionals who are seeking to expand their international network in the US, and who wish to take advantage of the tailored relation-building support each residency program provides. Each residency is conducted in collaboration with a local partner who will provide the artist with support and connections to local networks. Each applicant should prepare to showcase their work/research to New York’s creative community, and actively take advantage of the facilities and activities provided by the residency program.

The FCINY welcomes artists, curators, designers, and architects with diverse backgrounds and practices to apply. The programs are open for individuals and working groups of up to two people (the residency apartment is a one-room studio space, and it houses two people willing to share the open studio space). The selection is based on the motivation letter including a plan on how the applicant is intending to use the residency period in New York, and an interview with the jury. The residency program is open for all Finnish or Finland-based practitioners. Affiliations to member associations are not mandatory. We favor applications with a socially responsible stance, and encourage underrepresented groups to apply.

APPLICATION PERIOD:

The application period is May 6 to May 26, 2024.

The deadline for applications is Sunday, May 26, at 23:59 Finnish time (4:59 pm New York time). 

The results of the selection process will be communicated to all applicants by the end of June.
