The Denmark Arts Artist in Residence Program supports up to four visiting artists per year to undertake a residency at the Denmark Artshouse for up to approximately 6 weeks.


Denmark has a vibrant creative community and cultural identity and also has a unique natural and cultural heritage with strong community interest in supporting and promoting environmental sustainability and conservation values. 


The program aims to provide artists with an opportunity to immerse themselves in Denmark's community and natural environment and to undertake research and development for their own creative practice– and to support skill sharing, community and sector capacity building, encourage the creation of new networks, spark collaboration, and support the mutual exchange of ideas.
