We have an ambition to make our Artists in residence visible and influence our creative environment both internally towards students and staff, and externally. That is why we want permission from each participant to photograph works and process, expand and share project description and reflective statements about experiences gained at Steneby, and use this information in publications and reports.
After finished period we wish that the artist deliver some kind of documentation of their residency. The format of the documentation is not set and can depend on the nature of the specific project.
