Swedish Lapland AiR is a project run by Resurscentrum för konst
in partnership with other cultural institutions based in Norrbotten

The residencies are located across nine different places in the region. Shaped by their unique identities, the different sites offer a diverse cultural and natural environment, engaging participants with local culture, art, history and nature. Every residency will be a one-of-a-kind experience shaped by individual meanings, schedules and objectives.

Swedish Lapland AiR is possible thanks to the generous support given by Kulturrådet and the Cultural Department of Region Norrbotten.
