AiR program Oct 2018 - Sep. 2019

We received 304 applications for the AiR program 2018 - 2019. 31% of the applications came for Norway, 25% from Finland, 20% from Sweden 13% from Denmark and 12% from Iceland.


As a consequence, the selection committee during its final evaluation has again been obliged to do a rather drastic prioritising based on diverse factors and considerations of artistic and practical character. We selected 59 artists, and you can see them in the PDF file here below.

Circolo Scandinavo would like to thank everyone that applied.

Being a member means giving important support to Circolo, helping us keep up and develop our activity – offering Nordic artists from all art fields the possibility to live and work in the center of Rome for periods of one to three months. Circolo is also keen on promoting Nordic art and culture in Italy, and actively try to help our artists in residence to create contacts to the Italian art and culture field.


Circolo’s – for a Nordic context – rather long history of some 150 years, with well-known names such as Selma Lagerlöf, Henrik Ibsen, Bertel Thorvaldsen and H.C. Andersen among its former members, give the visiting artists a sense of belonging to a great tradition of Nordic artists. Rome has, and always will be, a great source of inspiration, and a place artists feel a need to visit. And with its current location in idyllic yet central Trastevere, Circolo offers a unique atmosphere and working possibilities for the artists in residence.
