One of the main goals of The Nordic Watercolour Museum is to promote artistic development to make the museum a space for thoughts and processes. One way of doing this, is by offering artists accommodation in the guest studios next to the museum. The museum wants to contribute to artistic networks, peace of mind, inspiration – for the creation of art. We are curious about the meetings and processes that can occur between the artist, the place, the visitors and the exhibitions.

For more information about the museum's residence scholarship, please contact Anna Berglund, anna.berglund@akvarellmuseet.org.
