For the Sake of Being(s) residency provides time, space and facilities for research, experimentation, and production of artistic work and ideas. It’s located in East Finland, in the municipality of Enonkoski, next to the Kolovesi national park, in a former village school of Ihamaniemi. The surrounding of the two-floor traditional log house is Finnish rural landscape, with lakes and forests all around.
For the Sake of Being(s) is a social enterprise and the three points of focus of our activities are art, education, and wellbeing. All our work promotes a healthy relationship towards ourselves, our body and mind, and to nature as a holistic interconnected system and source of all life. In the Olo Center, where the residency takes part, we organize workshops and events on topics such as art, ecology, self-development, wild food, permaculture, etc.
