FAQ // FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What activities can I expect to participate in during the programme?
We will tailor a programme relevant to your research and practice, within which you will be able to meet institutions and individuals from the Danish art scene. This could be in the form of exhibition visits, meetings with artists and curators, participating in seminars, etc. We would like to plan your programme with you before the commencement of your residency. Some of your excursions and visits will be with a guide, others will be on your own.
The programme will include an artist talk at Maltfabrikken. You will also be offered curatorial and coaching about artistic production processes.
Will I get pocket money?
Yes, you will receive a monthly stipend of 1000€ to cover living expenses, local transport and cost of materials and production. 135€ of this monthly allowance is to be used to cover your transport and accommodation expenses in relation to networking activities in Denmark.
Do I get a budget reserved for production?
No, you don’t get a budget reserved for production. But you will receive a monthly stipend of 1000€ to cover living expenses, local transport and the cost of materials and production.
Malt AIR is a residency focused on networking and research, so we don’t expect you to produce while you are here.
You should expect to use at least half of your monthly stipend on living expenses.
Do you accept multidisciplinary artists and/or performance artists in your programme?
If you are predominantly showing your work in professional visual art contexts such as art museums, exhibition spaces, artist-run project spaces, art biennials, and art festivals, you are eligible for the Malt AIR residency program. If your praxis has predominantly been unfolding in other professional performative art / music contexts, you are not eligible.
Why do you ask for professional references in the application - and what type of contact information do you need?
We ask for the references in the application because we might need them in the jury when we have narrowed down the number of applicants. They will be used only if the jury finds it necessary.
We will need the name, profession, mail address, and phone number of your references.
Can I apply with others / as a group / as a duo?
For the time being, we primarily focus on individual artists. This fits with the program's focus on individual research, process and network building. As well as with the residence facilities.
We are however open to duoes. The duo will be considered as 'one resident'. That means that the duo would share the residence facilities; the studio and bedroom. This also regards the monthly fee, and only one of you will have your traveling expenses covered by the programme.
Are there other artists in the residency?
The Malt AIR programme has two artists at a time, for a three-month period. The accommodation also holds space for other residents in different programs. In other words, there can be four residents at a time, sharing the apartment, which has one kitchen, two bathrooms, one living room and four bedrooms.
What can I expect when I arrive?
You can expect a warm welcome! We will pick you up at the Aarhus Airport, which is 15 km from the residency. You will be shown around your new home at Maltfabrikken and introduced to the people here and the surrounding area. The program for your time here includes visits to The Jutland Art Academy and The Danish Art Workshops in Copenhagen, where you will also be introduced to the art scene in the area. Many people are looking forward to meeting you!
Where will I live?
At Maltfabrikken in Ebeltoft. You will share an apartment with one-three other residents. You can see a description of the facilities here: RESIDENCY
Will I have my own studio?
Yes, you will have your own 'private' studio, which is in the same building as the apartment in Maltfabrikken. The studios are meant for research and are office-size. You will also have access to our workshop with equipment for working with wood and metal.
Can I take my dog / my partner / my family with me?
The residency only has space for you. There are, however, various accommodation options in the vicinity for your partner / family.
