RaumArs offeres accommodation in the heart of Old Rauma, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The board of directors chooses two to four stipendium artists in a year to whom RaumArs gives a room free of charge, some materials and administrative help in producing the accepted proposal for community/participatory art projects. Other artists pay a small monthly fee. RaumArs supports all artist by paying the exceeding 40 percent of housing. Artists pay travelling, art transporting and living costs (including food, house cleansers, print inks etc.).


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 and is owned by a private owner. Rauma Art Museum and artists' studios locate close by. You can be living alone, with your mate/partner or with other artists. Artist will take care of the apartment so that it stays in a good condition while living there and for the next artist to make herself/himself at home.
