AiR – S12

OBS: Denne teksten finnes foreløpig kun på engelsk.

Deadline for 2023 applications is Saturday July 15th.

OPEN CALL is now closed – thank you for your applications!


Who can apply

We welcome artists from all fields who can benefit from, or are in need of the equipment in the S12 workshop. Both Norwegian and international artists are welcome to apply.

What we offer

S12 provides a fully equipped glass workshop with the possibility to work with both hot and cold glass processes. See full list of equipment here. The program offers some workshop assistance, depending on the kind of work being made. Use of the workshop is free, and free accommodation is also provided.

The selected artists will have the opportunity to present their work during an open house event/ artist talk. The artist working with light will be offered the possibility to show the work in our gallery in December. 

See How to Apply

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.
