About Listhus Art Resident Program
The Program was running from February 2012 to September 2019. More than
350 artists from worldwide have been visited us from 1 week to 3 months.
It was a self-directed program for creatives who are inspired by raw landscape and
enjoy quiet surroundings. The home-like setting gives residency artists a warm and
intimate feeling. We could host 8-12 artists at a time, within 2 separate residency
houses located in close proximity to one another. The program provided an
excellent opportunity for international exchange and collaboration.
