Norway - Residency Program


Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder (LKV) was established in 1993. The name means “artists’ workshops in Lademoen” (Lademoen is the name of a part of Trondheim).

LKV contains 34 artists’ studios, 6 workshops and 2 guest studios. The studios and workshops are located in an old school building dating from the turn of the century. The five story building has a total floor area of 2264 m2. In addition to 34 private studios the facility also includes two project rooms at 90 and 55 m2 respectively. Over the last 6 years we have built up a print making workshop, photgraphic dark room, metal and welding workshop, carpentry, a computer room and digital video editing suite. LKV is run as a foundation. LKV offers two guest studios (50m2, headroom 3,8 m). The studios contains some basic tools (hammer, screw drivers, stapler etc.). The studio flats (ca 30 m2, fully furnished accomodation includes bedroom/living room, kitchen and a bathroom) is located in a connected building. Both the studios and the flats is provided free of charge to artists from all over the world with a duration of 1 to 3 months. Longer residency can be negotiated in special cicumstances. The rent for the studios is payed by the local authorities.

Residents may be asked to give lectures about their work for other artists in Trondheim. LKV does not have a gallery, any exhibition must take place in the studio, in one of our project rooms or outside LKV´s premises.

Guest artists may use the workshops by paying a fee of NOK 600,-.

The guest artists are selected once a year by a committee of 3 professional artists on the basis of applications with slides or other documentation of work. Trondheim is situated in the centre of Norway and lies on a fiord two hours from the open sea. The city is surrounded by a fine landscape of agricultural land, forests, hills and highlands with more mountainous regions to the south and east. Trondheim is the 3.rd largest city in Norway. The city has throughout history been a cultural, spiritual, commercial and an educational centre including the University (NTNU) with institutes for film and drama, philosophy, antropology, architecture, industrial design, construction technology and technical research. Trondheim has a rich cultural life with an art academy, music conservatory, symphony orchestra, concert hall, theatres, cinemas, clubs, bars and cafés.
