The modern residency facilities are situated in an old factory that has been transformed into a multidisciplinary cultural centre in beautiful surroundings in the small town of Ebeltoft. The residency buildings offer apartments, studios and workshop facilities and the residents have access to a wide variety of functions and activities in Maltfabrikken. 

Take a look at the residence facilities here.

Maltfabrikken is quickly becoming the area's cultural heart, and the residents will have a quiet space for research and production of their work, as well as access to a thriving community with a focus on gastronomy, entrepreneurship, music, art, culture and events. 




The Jutland Art Academy gives the resident artist access to the professional art scene in Aarhus and hosts networking activities. 

The Jutland Art Academy is a self-governing educational institution under the Ministry of Culture, located in the Latin Quarter in central Aarhus. The academy offers a five-year programme of higher education in fine arts, comprising a three-year Basic Programme and a two-year Diploma Programme. In addition, the academy presents a range of exhibitions and public events such as artist talks and lectures on current topics.

Learning and development do not only take place in specific teaching situations. The Jutland Art Academy should also be seen and understood as a complete academic and social environment arising as the sum of institutional and student-driven initiatives.

The residency’s connection to Copenhagen is through The Danish Art Workshops (DAW). During the course of the programme, the residents will be accommodated in DAW’s guest apartment, introduced to relevant members of the art community and receive professional guidance in artistic work processes at DAW.

The Danish Art Workshops (DAW) is an institution within the Danish Ministry of Culture. The purpose of DAW is to provide working facilities for particularly demanding art works. 
At DAW, it is possible for artists to do work in large formats, which their own studios or equipment cannot facilitate. Artists, designers, craftspeople, and restorers can work here on projects in art and design at the highest level.



Strategic partners

Besides the partners Malt AIR work with three strategic partners, that the residents will meet during their stay. As a part of the program, the strategic partners foster exchanges between the residing artist and the Danish contemporary visual arts scene and give professional feedback. 


Art Hub Copenhagen 
is an international art institution and meeting place in Copenhagen aimed at supporting and promoting young, professional visual artists, broadening and qualifying public debates on artistic practice, and strengthening the voice of artists in society.


Huset for Kunst og Design
is an exhibition, communication, production, and knowledge center for new art and design. The house is an open and lively place that works for the meeting between professional artists/designers and the younger creatives in Holstebro.


Aarhus Billedkunstcenter / Aarhus Center for Visual Art 
is an artist resource center supporting visual artists in Denmark’s Central Jutland region.

One of our key strategies for supporting local artists is to develop meaningful connections with international artists, curators, and institutions.
