Program Description:

RUD AIR is an Artist-In-Residence program in the rural area of Laxarby. It is situated ten km east of the small town of Bengtsfors, in the province of Dalsland, South-West Sweden. Away from the energetic and often hectic art world of the cities, this residency provides a tranquil and intimate space for art and reflection.

RUD AIR is an artist-run project initiated and organized by Lina Berglund ( The residence welcomes artists and writers from all over the world to come and spend some time in the house and its surroundings. The program is self-directed. RUD AIR simply aims to provide breathing space away from the obligations and routines of everyday life. It offers plenty of space in a calm environment enabling you to immerse yourself in your vocation and concentrate, research, experiment or simply clear your mind. Producing artwork or a final product is a possibility but not at all a requirement.

Please see website for information about the work space, accommodation, etc.
