Ptarmigan operated in Tallinn from 2011-2014. This website exists as an archive of its activities during this time. We no longer maintain any presence in Tallinn, but some people involved with Ptarmigan are now operating Temporary in Helsinki.
Residencies have been central to Ptarmigan's activities since day one, back in Helsinki when we started in 2009. Our residency programme has attempted to be both flexible and stable, to reflect the chaotic nature of culture production in the current age while simultaneously being hopefully more than a quotidian CV-building 'art hotel' experience.
Ptarmigan Tallinn offered a funded residency platform for Nordic/Baltic artists in 2012 and 2013, which was sponsored by Kulturkontakt Nord's Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme. This programme ended in 2013 though our Axis of Praxis shared residency programme with MoKS continues into 2014. The application period for Axis of Praxis is now closed.
Fo other residencies we cannot offer any funds or support beyond our enthusiasm and what we can scrape together of our non-monetary resources, but we are enthusiastic about mobility and having an international presence. If you have an idea for a short-term project that would work in a residency setting, please feel free to contact us.
