The Resident Fellow Program is the meeting point of the educational community – students and teachers – of the Academy of Fine Arts and the artists and writers in residence with the multitude of their creative practices. The program brings international artists and writers to undertake creative work in the proximity of the Academy community. It aims to support experimentation, reflection and discourse concerning arts and society.
The program is implemented in cooperation with HIAP, Helsinki International Artist Programme.
