AiR i S12

«Air i S12»  is currently welcoming applications for residencies during March through December 2017.

We welcome all artists and designers who can benefit from, or are in need of the equipment in the S12 work-shop.  Project oriented work is preferred.

The prospective artist will have the opportunity to present their work during an open house event or exhibit the work made in the project room.  The exhibition would last for a certain amount of time, depending on the requirements of the work and the S12 exhibition schedule.

S12 provides most workshop assistance.
Financial assistance is in some cases available as well as free accommodation.

AiR i S12 has been supported by the City of Bergen from its beginning, and the running of the workshop has been made possible by the Norwegian Arts Council. 
Other instances have supported it during shorter periods.
They are:
Kulturkontakt Nord/Nordic Culture Point – 1 yr. (2015/16)
Norske kunsthåndverkere 2 yrs  (2013/14)
