OPEN CALL Residence in Tartu, Estonia 2022

The Berlin-based project space roam is pleased to announce in cooperation with the Printing and Paper Arts Centre TYPA the call for applications for a residency in Tartu, Estonia. We are looking for German artists who would like to work from mid-October to mid-November 2022 in Tartu with the option of an exhibition during the Gallery Night on November 25th 2022.

TYPA is an international institution founded in spring 2010 as a private museum to fill the gap within memory institutions and to save the last surviving letterpress machines and equipment. We are looking for printmakers, but we also encourage artists who are new to printmaking – new media, sculpture, audio artists, painters and other artistic practices – to apply. Typa offers a wide range of printmaking processes (etching, relief, silkscreen and more), darkroom photography, bookbinding and support for artists to develop their own projects.

roam defines itself as a platform to engage with international protagonists of the free and independent art scene by strengthening Europe-wide connections, sharing already existing contacts and welcoming creatives to this fastly growing network. The project space accommodates art shows, shorter pop-up projects, networking events and has a residency program with a focus on East Europe.

The residency offers:

  • Coverage of travel costs to and from Tartu (max. 200,00 €)
  • Accommodation and studio use
  • Option of an exhibition during the Gallery Night
  • Material for print and photo work (machines, paper, ink, etc.)
  • Support, mediation and communication with local partners and networks, promotion
  • Exhibition organisation


  • A letter of motivation (max. 1 A4 page)
  • Short biography and/or artist statement
  • A portfolio with examples of work

Application Deadline: July 24th 2022, 12 p.m. via email to
