Residency Call: 6 Month SafeMuse Residency in Oslo

Dear INSPIRE community, we would like to share this opportunity for 6 month residency by Safemuse in Oslo:

"In the Norwegian capital of Oslo, we are establishing residencies for artists that are being censored, are living under threat, or that for various reason cannot work freely in their place of living. We offer six-month residencies with a focus on artistic development and cooperation, for artists within all artistic disciplines. The residencies are funded by the Municipality of Oslo. The residency is a cooperation between Safemuse and Nordic Black Theatre."

Travel cost, accommodation, living expenses and insurance will be covered by Safemuse and they will also help with the process of the visa-application. Please note that the program does not have the possibility of extension after 6 months.

Deadline for applying: September 1st

The application must include:

  • Documentation of your work 
  • A thorough description of your situation regarding censorship, threats, or persecution as a consequence of your artistic practice
