JOKKMOKK'S MUNICIPALITY






Residency programme.
The aim of the residency is to get acquainted with the multidimensional life of Jokkmokk. This is a place where mountains meet rivers and forests, traditional reindeer husbandry and business companies live side by side and multi-culturalism is a fact.
The artist needs to be independent, but there will be facilitators who will organise the studio visits (the studio is available for 30 days).
During the stay, the artist will have the possibility to visit the Vattenfall hydro power plant in Porjus, a reindeer husbandry company, the Ájtte museum and local artists' studios.
Moreover, the artist will be invited to give two public lectures - one of them at Kulturskolan, the local music and arts school - and participate in art talks for artists and art teachers within the municipality. 

Location.
Jokkmokk is a village situated above the Arctic circle in Swedish Lapland. It offers an inspiring environment with magnificent sceneries and a modern and traditional culture (Sami and Swedish).
