have decided to support 23 artists' residency centres as part of the Nordic-Baltic mobility programme for culture. The support means that each centre can receive guest artists from other Nordic and Baltic countries. Each residency is given subsidy that will cover 2 to 4 artists per year and will cover travel costs and accomodation for a period of approximately two months. In total all the centres together will be receiving 293 000 Euros for a two year period. Each artists' residency centre decides which artists to invite.

The Nordic Baltic mobility programme for culture is financed by the Nordic Council of the European Union.

The organisations to receive this support in Sweden are:
