  • Description


    This is a project in Northern Norway. We are working on building up an artist residence and a sculpture park. We are a couple with a little child and need help with building, gardening, animal care. Sometimes we have to take a trip for having exhibition or with different work for the project, then you will be alone here and take care of house and animals. We have two rabbits, some chicken and will start with sheep soon.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The place is beautiful. You will have the opportunity to go hiking and do fishing. In winter it's possible to see Northern lights and in summer the sun does not go down.

    There will be the possibility for a great exchange with us and other artists, which will come for projects. The neighborhood and the people around are very friendly. In summer there are many people around, who have holiday houses and grew up at lavangsnes. During wintertime we are 6 people living in the village.

  • Help


    The animals have to be feeded when we are away. There is as well always wood to be chopped and in summertime grass to be cut. The area is very grown in and we are working on getting ways and free space for art by tidiing the forest. So carrying trees, cutting bushes and plants, moving earth and stones are important things we need help with!

    Painting / building / making hey for the animals and tidiing could also be necessary.

    Since we are building up a place for art and artists, there will be many different types of things to do which we cannot foresee at the moment.
