Artist in residence

Artist in Residence / for English please look below 

Siden 2019 har vi startet et Artist in Residence-program I vores hus i Hans Jensens stræde 20 i Odense. Her er to små værelser på 1. sal, og køkken og bad i stueetagen. Vi modtager gerne ansøgninger om opholde fra en uge op til 3 måneders varighed.

Vi ønsker at give udenlandske grafikere mulighed for at arbejde i vores værksteder, samt at udvikle de talentfulde grafikere blandt vores egne medlemmer. Vi modtager gerne gæstekunstnere fra hele verden. Desværre har vi ikke midler til at gøre dette til et ophold der er gratis for kunstneren.

Det koster 200 DKK i døgnet for logi, og 500 kr. for et værkstedskort. Man bør være medlem af Fyns Grafiske Værksted for at søge ophold. Vores tilbud er til gæstekunstnere 5.000 DKK for en hel måned. Kunstneren skal kunne arbejde selvstændigt i værkstedet. Man kan søge om tilskud til sine rejse og opholdsudgifter hos

Residency Opportunity for Refugee and Migrant Artists at Printmaking Studios Across EuropeFive printmaking studios across Europe are inviting applications from artists who identify as refugees or with experience of displacement to undertake a 1-month long printmaking residency as part of the European residency programme In from the Margins, funded by Creative Europe.

30 artists will be selected in total, will have the opportunity to work in a print medium of their choice and will be supported to develop their practice practically and professionally. Throughout the residency programme we will be welcoming refugee and migrant communities in the studios to engage with resident artists, to share their own stories and create new work which will be shared between our project members and the wider visual arts community in Europe. The programme will culminate in a group exhibition at Edinburgh Printmakers in spring 2023.

Made possible with the support of the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union,
In from the Margins is a collaboration between:
Edinburgh Printmakers, Scotland

Cork Printmakers, Ireland

Funen Printmaking Studio, Odense, Denmark

International Centre of Graphic Arts, Ljubljana, Slovenia

AGA Lab, Amsterdam, Netherlands


Artists are invited to apply for the residency opportunity available within their host country.

Application period:           15.12. 2021

Individual application deadlines and details for each of the studios can be found on their website.


In from the Margins

How can we support and promote work by refugee and migrant artists who have had to leave everything behind?

Funded by Creative Europe, In from the Margins is a European programme of Studios of Sanctuary residencies that provides: supported workspaces for artists from refugee and migrant backgrounds; exchanges of their work; and engagement with refugee, schools and wider communities. Work with refugee and migrant artists is currently largely focused on outreach and engagement programmes of major galleries. The project will bring this work 'in from the margins' to mainstream programming.

In from the Margins will create the first network of Studios of Sanctuary in Europe, offering opportunities for 30 artists from refugee and migrant backgrounds to take up supported residencies in internationally recognised print studios, taking place as follows:

9 residencies at Edinburgh Printmakers

6 residencies at Cork Printmakers, Funen Printmaking Studio, Odense and International Centre of Graphic Arts, Ljubljana; and

3 residencies at AGA Lab, Amsterdam.


An engagement programme with refugee, schools and wider communities will be running alongside the residencies. The contribution that refugees and migrant communities make to wider society will be celebrated also through exchanges of their work, exhibitions, and multi-disciplinary events.

In from the Margins seeks to break down barriers and create opportunities for refugee artists and local communities to share and to learn from each other while being supported by the resources and expertise of print studios. Each organisation will work in the language of their own studio and the languages of the resident artists where possible.

The project emerged from discussions between the partners, all print studios with civic aims which are based in multicultural cities on the margins of Europe. Our residency programme will further develop the 'Studios of Sanctuary' model, which originated in Yorkshire in response to the work of migrant artist Mohammed Barrangi, an artist and former Paralympian from Iran who became resident artist at The Art House in Wakefield, in a range of contexts across Europe.
