The Helsinki International Curatorial Programme currently offers curatorial residencies in Helsinki for international visual arts curators. The aim of the programme is to provide curators with an opportunity to carry out research on Finnish fine art, to build contacts with Finnish art practitioners and cultural organisations and to develop international curatorial projects involving Finnish participants. The programme is open to curators worldwide with professional experience in organising visual arts projects.

Curatorial residencies include the cost of travel to and from Helsinki with a grant for living expenses provided by FRAME, studio accommodation and residency services provided by HIAP and administrative support and practical assistance for the participant’s curatorial project provided jointly by FRAME and HIAP. A small public event (workshop, lecture, open meeting, etc) will also be organized during the residency. The length of the curatorial residency is usually one calendar month.

Applications are accepted throughout the year. The jury reviewing the applications meets at least twice a year. Applications should be received by May 1st or November 1st to qualify for review at the following meeting. Next deadline: 1 May 2008.
