Artists pay travelling, art transporting and living costs (including food, house cleansers, print inks etc.). Independently working artists pay fee per month.


The apartment of 82 sqm consists of 3 rooms, a kitchen, a toilet and a shower/toilet in a wooden detached house in Old Rauma, just opposite to the Old Church Ruins. The house (yard) consists of 9 lodgings. Rauma Art Museum and artists' studios locate close by. You can be living alone, with your mate/partner or with other artists.
