How to Apply

The Takahuhti residence is open to artists from all over the world for periods year round. There is no residency program with scholarships provided by Tampere Artists´ Association. We offer only rented housing and work space for visiting artists.

Rent for the studio and apartment: 440 €/month (1 person) and 470 €/month (2-3 people), 280 €/2 weeks.

The artists living in the residency must be ready to carry out their projects independently. However, the residence is situated in an Artcenter, where there are studios of several other artists as well, thus providing a friendly community for visiting artists.

Applications by portfolios are accepted year round.

The duration of residencies is minimum of two weeks. The Association has work facilities in Mältinranta Artcenter as well (studios for metal works and intaglio, litography, woodcut and silkscreen printing) and the visiting artist can rent also them for different periods of time. More information of this option is available at the office: info (at)
