RaumArs functions with help from local art and cultural institutions, organizations and individuals. The purpose of RaumArs is to take art out of museums and galleries, and to work in a community/participatory/social context to create innovative links between people. RaumArs can host 1 to 4 artists (an artist accompanying a partner/groups/families) at the same time in Old Rauma. During the residency, participatory artists create artworks, projects or happenings with local people according to a project plan. Independently working artists/curators work themselves.
Residencies in 2021:
Notice that for the summer period (June–mid/end August) they accept only independent work applications.
Participatory / community / socially engaged art project realized with local people. Or independent working. RaumArs collaborates with schools, art institutions, museums, music and dance schools, widely different associations and festivals. The project can be a research or be presented in the form of an exhibition / performance / education / workshop / event somewhere inside or outside, in an environment / cityscape during and at the end of the residency period. Exhibitions can’t be guaranteed, because RaumArs does not have a space of one’s own. Very often shows, performances or events happen in unconventional spaces. Please read about the old projects from their archive for an inspiration.
