Helsinki-Dublin Residency Exchange offers residencies for Finnish and Finland-based artists in Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, Dublin and for Irish artists in HIAP, Helsinki.
Since the partnership began in 2007, TBG+S and HIAP have supported over twenty artists and curators from Ireland and Finland.
In 2020, one artist from Finland will be selected for a two-month residency at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, Dublin. TBG+S offers accommodation and a studio space for the artist and an opportunity to present their practise in the framework of TBG+S’ programme of public events, such as studio presentations, talks, screenings or mini exhibitions in the studio space. The residency is planned to take place in October-November 2020 (but could be postponed to 2021 if necessary).
“The framework offered to me by the residency at TBG+S, the studio and staff, enabled me to realise a new painting, Paulas Garten, which I had had in mind for a long time. Furthermore, I gathered a lot of energy for my practice from talking with artists and curators and getting to know the Dublin art scene.”

The exchange programme is co-organised by HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme, Temple Bar Gallery + Studios and Finnish Institute in London.
