KKV LULEÅ

Residency programme.
We are interested in inviting artists to have the opportunity to work in our well-equiped workshops, giving them the chance to get involved in an international context. 
The selected artists, once introduced to the spaces, equipment and materials, will work independently according to their needs and interests.
During their stay, we would like the artist to present and talk about previous work during an 'artist get-to-gather'.
Please send photos of your previous works, motivating the preference given to KKV in Luleå and specifying what workshop/s you would prefer working in (generally 3 out of 4 weeks of your stay).

Location.
KKV is located in Kronan, a creative district of Luleå reachable within a 30min walk from the city centre or a 7min car/bus ride (bus n. 6). Luleå is served by an airport, a bus and a train station, connecting it to many regional areas within Sweden.
