WELCOME TO OUR SATAMA HOUSE. YOUR CREATIVE HIDEAWAY IN SOUTHERN FINLAND.

The Satama House residency is for people who would like to work independently on their projects in profoundly beautiful nature, close to Turku and Helsinki.

SATAMA HOUSE

Our house is located on a peninsula in Southwest Finland, within the large archipelago of the Baltic Sea. “Satama” means harbour in Finnish and is a metaphor for our residence. Surrounding the house is a magical world of thousands of islands, trees and wild birds. Satama House is close to the Gamla Stan (Old Town) of Ekenäs, situated in a lively community with a market square, cafés, restaurants and shops. People are bilingual in this region. They speak Finnish and Swedish and, normally, very good English. By train, bus, or car, Ekenäs is only 1.5 hours away from Helsinki and Turku. 

THE STIPEND

We offer a stipend lasting from 1 to 3 months. We’re not covering travel or daily expenses, but we do cover all running housing costs. Applications to stay are not possible during the period starting from the beginning of June to the end of August and from mid-December to mid-January. 

WHO IS IT FOR

Writers, translators, and scientific working people. Conceptual artistic, photographic or compositional work is also possible. Our residency doesn’t have a studio, but a cozy study. It offers space for one person, a maximum of a couple, and pets are not allowed.

HOW TO APPLY

Before you apply for our stipend, please be sure to read the FAQs. Then email us a short description of you and your project. We'll get in touch with you as soon as possible.
