Open Call

TUO TUO's Inaugural 2020 Open Call Is Now Live!


No Funding
Joutsa, Finland


We support radical thinking across disciplines by providing space, proximity to nature, and a platform to exchange ideas that are free and open to all. TUO TUO prioritizes projects and proposals in the fields of Ecological art and research, Ecopsychology, Permaculture, and interactive public works. We believe art functions as a mirror of the wider society; its reverberations are felt beyond the creative community. Artists with similar environmental and conditional requirements will be hosted together for synergy and ease. Conditional criteria covers preferential aspects such as digital technology use, silence and interaction, structure and critique, as well as more granular considerations.

Number of Participants

Our Residency can accommodate up to three residents at a time, or small groups up to five.

Program Description

The TUO TUO Residency program is self-directed. We’re not product-oriented, so residents are not required to fulfill or produce during their stay. We aim to provide the optimal conditions for each artist based on their process, needs, and freedom to nurture their creative minds and spirits. Artists will be selected based on the correlative balance between their desired conditions and TUO TUO's means and provisions. The length and conditions of each residency period vary based on artists' needs, but each participant can rely on the following to be provided: high-speed internet, organic bedding, coffee and tea, transportation to and from the bus stop on arrival and departure, as well as weekly trips into town.
