It is very appreciated if the recipients of the program present their projects on e.g. a book event, a reading or a class. The Arstad Artist in Residence program is usually aimed at foreign writers. However, since there is still a huge uncertainty about the travel restrictions in November, the residency will also accept writers living in Norway.
There is only one guest writer/artist on the farm at one time.
Arstad Nordre Farm is beautifully situated on a southwest-facing elevation with a view towards Lake Mjøsa, 5 km south of the town of Hamar, 1 hour from Gardermoen Airport, and 1.5 hours from Oslo.
The artist’s apartement is located in the old farmhand’s house, built in 1900.
Arstad AIR is an artist-run residence. Arstad Nordre Farm is owned and run by author Ellen Fjestad and her family. Hosts live in the house next to the artist apartment.
