Open Call: Helsinki Design Residency 2020

Three practitioners in design, architecture, and related fields—one each from Russia, Sweden, and Finland—are invited to join the Helsinki Design Residency this year.

UPDATE: The deadline for applicants from Finland and Russia has been extended to Sunday, March 15.

The residency is organized by the Helsinki International Artist Programme (HIAP) in collaboration with Strelka Institute, Iaspis, Helsinki Design Week, the Design Museum, the Finnish Institute in St. Petersburg, and the Embassy of Finland in Moscow.

The residency focuses on research, networking, and public dialogue on the work conducted. It offers resident practitioners the opportunity to create connections with local and international designers, researchers, companies, and institutions, and to engage in critical discourses on design today.

Research proposals for participation in the 2020 Helsinki Design Residency program are being accepted until March 9.

The residency is open to practitioners who have an interest in critically and practically exploring design and its interfaces as a cultural practice. It comprises two periods in Helsinki: a two-week research phase in May/June and a production and presentation phase of one month in August and September 2020.
