AARK Archipelago Art Residency in Korpo
About all residency periods, let’s make a new plan when its safe to travel again! Just contact us: info at aark.fi

AARK art project for almost 6 years

AARK, my biggest art project

My biggest art project is definitely AARK which we founded with my husband Benkku over 5 years ago. We strongly believed in our idea and wanted to create a space for several artists from all disciplines to have a residency on our home island. We focus on a dialogue inside the residency and with the surrounding archipelago nature and of course with the local little community. AARK gives a lot of positive energy and positive signals from this former ferry staff family house in Retais Ferry shore.

We are supported by Svenska kulturfonden, TAIKE, Parainen, Sparbanksstiftelsen i Korpo
