Region Uppsala, in collaboration with the Quilt Academy of Sweden and Uppsala Municipality, is announcing the international artist residency Art ‘n Fiber for artists living in Europe. The residency wishes to encourage individual creativity and international artist collaboration in textile art. During the residency period, the artist is expected to participate in a public artist’s talk at the Uppsala Art Museum to talk about his/her art and share experiences and insights from the residency.

What the residency includes

The residency includes an individual residency grant of SEK 15,000 for one artist. It is intended for two weeks of artistic work including a studio stay with accommodation and self-catering at the Quilt Academy of Sweden’s centre just outside Storvreta, Uppsala. Here there is a studio intended for textile art activities, a kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. It’s situated at 5 km from Storvreta and 15 km from Uppsala centre. Access to bicycles is available. A travel allowance of up to SEK 5,000 for travel to and from Sweden is also included in the residency. Costs for travel within the country, insurances and food are not included.

Who can apply?

The residency is for professional artists or those with equally active artistic commitment. The artist must be a resident outside Sweden's borders and living in Europe. The artist must work with textile techniques and have an explicit modern/contemporary focus based on one/some of the following textile techniques:
• Quilting / patchwork technique • Embroidery • Fabric print
The residency artist's work process should be based either on independent artistic work, a desire to create artistic collaboration with professional artists/individuals or groups within Uppsala County or based on already ongoing collaboration projects with an existing party within Uppsala County. During the Covid-19 pandemic the Quilt Academy of Sweden wishes that the resident artist can present a valid vaccination certificate upon request.
