“Back to Basics” Intensive residency program in Hämeenkyrö, Finland
Focus on the essentials
Stop the information overflow, go offline and get back to focus in a supportive, natural environment in the middle of the Northern summer.
Back to Basics residency program gives artists the opportunity to clear their mind, get back to focus and (re)discover the very basis of their creative practice and being. What are the fundamental elements and ideas behind my work? What is the purpose in doing what I’m doing? Where to take it from here?
In this residency program, participants are encouraged to not have a predetermined project plan to follow, but to arrive with an open mind and dedicate their time at the residency for on-site observations, ideas, conversations, self-reflection and development. With support from the program structure and other participants, Back to Basics provides an intensive residency experience far away from everyday distractions, surrounded by peaceful and beautiful nature.
