The Saari Residence offers artists an excellent opportunity to focus undisturbed on creative work in the peaceful and scenic surroundings of a historical, rural manor house, as well as excellent opportunities for interaction with other residents.

Residencies are available to individual artists working in various artistic fields; translators, curators and critics; and artistic groups (working groups and organisations with a business ID) of all disciplines. It is open to all nationalities.

Residency positions are intended for artistic work. Priority is given to fresh, multidisciplinary, marginal, or non-mainstream themes and fields of art. Applicants must present in their application a project proposal or a work plan for their residency.

A two-month individual residency includes accommodation, workspace, and a monthly grant. The grant is awarded to cover living and travel expenses.

Groups may apply for support for their travel and living costs if their residency is of shorter duration (2–4 weeks).
