During the pandemic in 2021 Swedish Lapland AiR and Berwick Visual Arts collaborated with a digital residency between the two artists Mats Wikström and Morag Eaton. The digital exchange was an opportunity for a creative practitioner based in Råneå and Berwick-upon-Tweed to learn about each other's practice and the creative communities they are part of within their respective rural localities.

Now it's time to meet. Morag Eaton will travel to Sweden and work in Luleå and Råneå, hosted by Mats Wikström and the Råne biennial.
