Tusen Takk Foundation

Tusen Takk 2021 Artist Residency
Due Sep 15 2020

Application Period: June 15-September 15, 2020 (extended deadline)
Residency Period: March - December 2021

Tusen Takk was designed to host one resident, or two in collaboration for residencies 3-12 weeks in length. We welcome applications from both emerging and established visual artists in photography, printmaking, sculpture, painting, fiber arts, as well as writers and composers. Artists must be self-motivated so they can be productive in the isolation afforded by a residency. They must also be open to sharing insights with audiences about their work and processes.

Artists-in-residence are provided housing with 24/7 access to the Foundation’s Studios. In addition, arrangements can be made to use the Peckham Library and Collection as a resource. Financial assistance is provided to the artist in the form of an honorarium of $625/week. While in residence, artists are highly encouraged to give a workshop, studio visit, talk, or a public presentation or performance in collaboration with one of the Foundation’s partner organizations.

Highlights of the Tusen Takk Studios include a fully equipped digital photography studio and analogue darkroom for making the finest photographic prints, an etching studio for printmaking (including photogravure), a 63” Glimakra Swedish floor loom, and a painting studio able to accommodate making large works, all in a modernist architectural space brilliantly designed by Peter Bohlin,!
