TUO TUO Kulttuuri Tila [space for cultural cultivation] & Residency. Located two hours north of Helsinki, our refurbished schoolhouse – built in the late 1920s – offers studio/exhibition and outdoor space to artists, activists, and progressive thinkers, as well as fully-equipped lodging and gathering spaces for collaborators and guests.

The program is self-directed, there are no requirements to produce work. If you have big plans, we want to hear about them. If you want to swim in the lake and quiet your mind – that’s okay too. Residents/ projects spanning Ecology art, Ecopsychology, Permaculture, and interactive public works (which include performance and sound projects) will be given priority acceptance.

Artists fee of 350e per month includes a fully-furnished private bedroom and private work space, as well as access to the kitchen, common areas, laundry, grounds, etc; pickup/drop off from the nearest bus station and weekly trips into town; coffee/tea; sauna, swimming, hiking; production assistance, project management support/ resourcing, and press support.

Gestural lines, fragmented patterns and assorted textures are the threads of my work which create a space for the confluence of memory, time and place.  The overarching theme of my work is a narrative drawn from personal history, my meditation and spiritual practice, community engagement and interest in the mysteries of the Universe.
