Context

Landskrona Foto has in recent years been established as one of the Nordic regions’ eminent photography initiatives and includes the renowned Landskrona Foto Festival. Landskrona Foto is an ongoing initiative to develop a hub for the art of photography.

Fröfabriken Creative Space is a collaborative platform for art, production and meeting. It is situated in a former seed plant in Landskrona. 1600 sqm have been remodelled to accommodate artists’ and photographers’ specific workspace needs. Today there are 13 ateliers, one photo studio and a multi-use hall for meetings, events, and group activities. The artists, photographers and designers in Fröfabriken welcome participants of the residency program into a stimulating environment with access to local and global networks within the artistic and photographic industries.

Former holders of the residency programme are

• Coşkun Aral (2014)
