International innovation network of artist residencies (KRIPA) 2020-2022

The project aims to create permanent supporting structures for the field and to increase the international competence for the local cultural actors in Ostrobotnia.

The KRIPA-project is based on the appeal of rural surroundings and the growth potential in the creative field. The objective of the innovative network is to create permanent supporting structures for the field and to increase the international competence for the local cultural actors.

KRIPA is based on a previously conducted development plan for artistic residencies in Northern Ostrobothnia, which included nearly all municipalities of the region in co-operation with the City of Oulu.

The project is funded by Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment through European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.

The project is led by Municipality of Ii, City of Raahe and Kuusamo College.
