Helsinki International Curatorial Programme

Helsinki International Curatorial Programme organised by HIAP – Helsinki
International Artist-in-residence Programme and FRAME Finnish Fund for Art
Exchange 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, studio accommodation, residency services
and administrative support. Practical assistance for the participant's
curatorial project are provided by HIAP and FRAME. A small public event
(e.g. workshop, lecture, open meeting) will also be organised during the
residency. The curator will have access to an extensive collection of
Finnish artist portfolios at the FRAME office.
