BRINGING ART AND AUDIENCES CLOSER

RaumArs hosts an international artist residency, where artists from different fields carry out community and participatory art projects, workshops, events and performances with local communities, groups and individuals. The mission of RaumArs is to develop cultural possibilities in Rauma town and in Satakunta region by producing interesting and high-quality projects, open for everyone. Through community art projects and art visible in the environment, art comes closer to citizens and enables the development of national and international connections between artists and cultural actors in Satakunta.

Residency program includes all fields of art. A prerequisite in choosing the resident artists is a plan for a high-quality and functional art project that will be implemented during a visit to Rauma or elsewhere in Satakunta. Independent artists can also apply for residency. As a general rule, you apply for residence for the following year.

RaumArs is one of the oldest artist residencies in Finland. The first guest artist arrived in 1997 and RaumArs A-i-R registerated in 1999. The activities are based on extensive cooperation with art and cultural institutions, associations, artists and individuals.

Ivana Blanco Gross, 2022 artikkeli

Exchibition at Seppä House, Alfredinkatu 3, Rauma, 7.-18.6.2022. Open Mon–Thu 12–18, Fri–Sun 12–16.
Sitting at the intersection that connects conceptual, pop and neo-minimalism art, the show is a celebration of joy and color. It invites you to play with wooden blocks and build your own personal landscape. The art now in Seppa House is meant to be inhabited, manipulated, walked through and experienced with a smile. The artist is asking you to be present in her own landscape and interact with it as if you were on a hike.

Noora Ylipieti, 2022

Exchibition at Seppä House, Alfredinkatu 3, Rauma, 7.-18.6.2022. Open Mon–Thu 12–18, Fri–Sun 12–16.

Ylipietin vampyyri-teokset ovat sarjakuvamaisia ja tarinallisia sekä väreissään, että tekniikassa anteeksipyytelemättömiä. Hahmot ovat kaksijakoisesti sekä ihmisten maailmassa, että toisaalta omassaan. Useita näyttelyitä sekä yhteisötaideteoksia sisältävä kokonaisuus on Ylipietin monivuotinen hanke. Näyttelyn teokset hän on toteuttanut residenssissä joulu-helmikuun (2021-22) aikana.
