Kultiveras creative residencies allows primarily two things, time and space for an artist to practice their craft and a particular context which may inform that practice. The area of Småland in Sweden has a particular beauty and landscape that enhances a sense of creative space and time but it is not necessarily to the physical environment which the organisers wish the artists to respond. The residency is not taking place within a particular industry, organisation or building. Rather it is hoped it takes place within a spirit of intercultural dialogue and possible collaboration. International cultural exchange, both physically and creatively is the driving force behind the creation of Kultivera in the town of Tranås, a cultural organisation dedicated to the development of a programme of international cultural exchange within the region.
