Silence Awareness Existence
Special theme residency program by Arteles
1 month residency in Finland / December 2013
Retreat into existence
December being the darkest of the Finnish winter, S.A.E offers an extreme retreat into existence through art, silence and nature. The program brings together creative minds who are interested and working around the theme on various fields.
The predefined structure of the program is kept empty and more extreme elements can be added to it (e.g limited internet access to limit the escapism through web). Conditions are excellent for both collaborating and for concentrating on your own work, thinking and being. There is no pressure to produce anything, in case you are more into inner development.
True northern experience
The northern winter is an experience like no other. The sun stays low on the horizon, leaving the days to be ruled by long blue moments and dark nights. Snow is likely to cover the grounds, and the landscape is very monotone. If you get lucky, you can even catch a glimpse of the Northern lights. The raw & rural surroundings create an ideal setting for personal inner journeys and research.
The program is organized by Arteles Creative Center, one of the largest and most international residency centers in Scandinavia.
