Hållnäs konstkoloni

We are a family-run venue for artistic residencies and courses in the forests close to the Baltic sea. We welcome both small groups and individuals. Our vision is of a thriving, creative local community where contemporary art practice has a natural place. We are always looking for new collaborations with institutions, organisations and other local producers of culture.

The season for the studio spaces is May – September. During the cold months we also rent out desk space and accommodation to artists and writers seeking a peaceful and quiet retreat close to nature.

We also welcome small yoga retreats, workshops and small conference groups wishing a quiet and different environment. In summer, we can often provide lunch with produce from our garden and greenhouse. We can also cater for a meal outdoors. Do contact us with your ideas and we'll tailor your stay for you.

We can accommodate 8 over-night guests.

Since 2014, we have been slowly converting an old barn into three beautiful studio spaces, with the help and enthusiasm of many volunteers. Do follow our story on Instagram (#konstkoloni) and Facebook (Hållnäs konstkoloni)!
