AiR Green – Artist Residency at Søndre Green farm
– for artists whose work relates to textile media
Norwegian Textile Artists (NTK) announces an artist-in-residence opportunity for artists whose work relates to textile media. The residency is at Søndre Green farm in Noresund, at the foot of the Norefjell mountain range in Krødsherad Municipality, Buskerud County, Norway. With this residency, NTK aims to create an arena for concentration and in-depth research, to contribute to the development and presentation of textile art, and to promote contact between artists who use different approaches to textile media.
APPLICATION DEADLINE DECEMBER 15 th. 2023
The application deadline for both AiR Green and AiR Green Studio is Friday December 15th 2023. Applications must be submitted via an application form at the bottom of this page.
WHO CAN APPLY
AiR Green is for professional artists who work with textile media, fiber art, or who have a project relating to textiles.

No instructions in textile techniques or the like will be given. The residency also applies solely to the artists (it does not extend to family members, partners, pets etc.).
The residency is open to international artists.
