Malt AIR is a visual arts residency program in Denmark. Malt AIR invites professional artists from all over the world to participate in a 3-month visual arts residency program at Maltfabrikken in Ebeltoft.

The residency offers international artists the opportunity to develop new and valuable relations with the Danish visual arts scene. Studio facilities and accommodation, as well as a travel grant and a monthly stipend, are included in the program.

Purpose of the program

The purpose of the program is to 
foster exchanges between the residing artist and the Danish contemporary visual arts scene and support the development of the resident’s artistic practice.

The resident artist will participate in networking activities, studio visits, and meetings with relevant professional individuals, as well as receive curatorial feedback. Malt AIR also wishes to support the artistic process and research phase by giving the artist time, space, and opportunity for reflection and focus.

Each residency programme will be individually tailored in a professional artistic manner and involve networking activities.


The residency program includes

  • An individual studio, access to shared workshop facilities, and accommodation in a shared apartment situated at Maltfabrikken in Ebeltoft, Denmark
  • A travel grant for an economy class flight to Denmark and return
  • Visa costs
  • A monthly stipend of €1000 / 7.500 DKK to cover living expenses, local transport, and cost of materials and production
  • Tailormade activities aimed at facilitating network development with relevant artists, curators, and art professionals in Denmark as well as supporting the development of the resident artist’s artistic practice

The program provides possibilities, and it is the responsibility of the artist to make use of these.


Reporting and expectations

As the aim of the residency includes exchange and network development, it is expected that artists in residence are outward-looking and have an open approach and attitude. For example, by participating in artist talks, being active on social media, and becoming actively involved in the Danish visual arts scene.

Evaluation of your stay is also part of the residency program.



Malt AIR is a collaboration between Maltfabrikken, The Jutland Art Academy and The Danish Art Workshops, and the programme is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation.
