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.
