How to Apply

Next application deadline: 5 August 2024 at 24:00

You can apply for a residency four times a year. The deadline is always at the beginning of February, May, August, and November. Are you applying with a project that’s more than a year ahead, we kindly ask you to wait for a later deadline.
Students are not taken into consideration – you must be established as a professional within your field.

N.B. It is not possible to rent a space in either workshops, studios or guest accommodation.

Your Application Must Contain

  • A resumé of your project description with a maximum of 1500 keystrokes incl. spaces. Argue what you need our facilities for, and why your project cannot be solved elsewhere.
  • Visualizations, photos, sketches or drawings of the project you intend to work with.
  • CV and images of previous work.

Remember to clarify when using other people’s images for mood boards or other visual documentation in your application. 

Attach your project description (max. 1 page), your CV (max. 1 page) and visual documentation (max. 10 pages) – collected all together in one pdf-file.

Personal Data and Copyright

By submitting your application form, you simultaneously hand us your personal data such as name, address, phone and birthday. We keep this private of course, but if you are in doubt of what you agree to, you can read through our privacy policy: Download Privacy Policy (PDF)


You automatically receive a receipt, when submitting your application. You will receive an answer approx. 4-5 weeks after the application deadline.

Contemplation in the Studios

SVFK provide a peaceful alternative to the usual workspace in shared art studios, and you may come and go as you like around the clock. If you have been granted access to one of our studios, other users will not have access to it.

When you work at the SVFK you will meet colleagues across disciplines and industries. We arrange artist talks and design talks, and you can have your lunch with other users and the staff. Friday afternoon we have a tradition of ending the week with wine and cake.

Online communication of projects is always based on respectful dialogue between the artist and the communication staff.

Please note, that a stay at the SVFK is not a residency in its original sense. We only provide the optimal working facilities – not press relations, contact with curators or other promotion activities.

The Execution of the Project Lies in Your Hands

Our workshop supervisors and consultants are skilled artists and craftspeople. As resident, you may draw on their expertise. The wood and metal workshops have full time staff, while the other workshops have associated consultants, who will get you started. The actual work on your project must be carried out by yourself or by your assistants.

You Must Provide Your Own Materials

You are responsible for providing the materials that you need, but our workshop supervisors and consultants are happy to give their advice on what to buy and where.

Non Danish Applicants

Non-Danish applicants must apply with projects related to cultural activities within Denmark. This means, you must have some kind of collaboration with a Danish artist/exhibition space or your project must revolve around a Danish topic.
