UNICORN – Artists in solidarity

UNICORN – Artists in solidarity

UNICORN – artists in solidarity, is a network initiated by artists and cultural workers based in Malmö. UNICORN is developing a residency programme in cooperation with Inter Arts Center with the aim to give refuge to artists at risk. All over the world artists are put under pressure, and their possibilities to work are being systematically undercut by governments and other oppressing structures.

The residency programme comprises an apartment that the artist and/or activist will share together, access to studio space at Inter Arts Center and a small stipend for each participant that will cover daily expenses. UNICORN will assist with access to workshops and equipment according to the resident’s needs and pay for travel expenses and help with visa.

At the heart of the residency programme is a desire to act in solidarity and share experiences and strategies with colleagues as well as support artists who are in need of citizenship.


The first call for applications closed in April 2016. For more information, contact UNICORN at unicorn.malmo@gmail.com


Former residents include Ganna Tysba and David Chichkan.
