Artist in Residence, AIR Jakobstad

The Residency was started 1996 by Svenska Konstskolans Vänner which was a support oganisation for students at Svenska Konstskolan i Nykarleby - later the Fine Arts programme in Novia University of Applied Sciences.
Until 2012 the residency was located in Nykarleby.
In August 2012 both the educaton and the residency moved to Jakobstad and the new Campus Allegro which houses several educations as well as cultural venues. The AiR and its related projects (workshops, talks etc.) continues in Jakobstad under the adjusted name (AiR-Jakobstad) and a new organisation.
Exchange projects and visiting artists are mainly organised through established contacts and collaborations.
