Seanse is a national creative development arena and meeting place for art production in all genres. We are located at Volda University College, with access to a broad competence environment within the arts, as well as suitable premises for artistic work.

Since 2004, we have had more than 637 national and international artists involved in 319 productions at our artists residencies. Seanse’s goal is to contribute to quality productions, skills development and innovation in art for and with children, young people and others.

Seanse offers:
• Good working conditions in own premises
• Guidance by mentors with artistic and pedagogical competence
• Participation in an interdisciplinary artist’s collegium
• Reimbursement, paid travel and accommodation.

The artist in residencies in 2021 will be held the weeks 24, 25, 42 and 43. Artists in all genres can apply. We accept all types of projects from idea to post-production, and from both groups and individuals. This year, a special invitation is given to applications related to digital productions, for example with e-sports / gaming, and art-productions aimed towards children and young people with special needs. About 20 art projects will be granted residence in 2020.
