The Finnish Artists’ Studio Foundation has since the beginning of the early 2000s served as a cooperation point on the Finnish arts residency sector and has taken care of various coordination and information tasks:
– supporting Finnish residency operators to develop their practices (peer-to-peer meetings of the network, advice and best management practices etc.)
– collecting data and information on Finnish residencies (e.g. statistics on the amounts of resident artists) in order to provide monitoring data from the field
These activities have been supported by funding from The Arts Promotion Centre of Finland.
