Each season, AHC invites three artists in residency. In previous years, the program has taken place at Halmtorvet 27, but from spring 2024, the artists who are selected will instead be offered a studio at the Container Academy in Copenhagen’s Nordhavn.

Applications are now open and the deadline is Wednesday, 10 April at 11.59 PM.

Below you can read about the program, about the Container Academy, who and how to apply.

AHC values diversity highly. We therefore encourage everyone regardless of ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and identity to apply.

We look forward to receiving your application!


AHC is a network-creating institution that works actively to create and expand visual artists’ networks both nationally and internationally.

Focusing on networking, communication, contemplation, and production, Art Hub Residency features a studio, a monthly fee, a production budget, and a programme of development and feedback based on the needs of each artist. Also, part of the program consists of meetings with selected curators/mentors as well as a visit program to a number of art institutions in Denmark.

In addition to the focus on networking, Art Hub Residency provides the artists with time for reflection and/or production. There is no requirement to produce work during the residency, and thus the time can be tailored to suit the process of each artist. It might involve research and studies, trying out ideas, or actual production. The artist has access to workshop facilities at the Container Academy, by agreement, a shorter stay at the Danish Art Workshops is also an opportunity.

Art Hub Residency is both for recently graduated artists and other artists, for whom the residency program could make a difference in terms of establishing and expanding their practice nationally and internationally. The residency runs over five months from September 2024 to January 2025.

One of the requirements of the program is that, during their residency, each artist must present their practice, research, work, or project to the public. The form of presentation is up to the artist. It could be a talk, a podcast, a video, a text, a viewing, a performance, or something completely different. We shape and organise the presentations in collaboration with each artist. It is also expected that the residents plan their stay in a way that allows them to spend most of their time at the premises in Copenhagen.



Graduated artists who are EU/EØS citizens or either in possession of a permanent residence permit or entitled in some other way to reside in Denmark for a period of five months.

The Container Academy is a studio community for visual artists at Oceanvej 1 in Copenhagen’s Nordhavn, which is expected to be operational from early January 2024. The site contains a total of 30 individual studios as well as two large joint workshops.

The “Academy” in the Container Academy refers to the “School of Athens” and the Socratic way of thinking about equal conversation between free people. The studio community will therefore not only be a place for artists to work, but also an intellectual community where a continuous, investigative conversation will take place – through an artistic and public program of exhibitions and other events. It is hoped that several of the applying artists will want to contribute to initiating knowledge-producing and investigative conversations at the Container Academy.

The initiator of the project is visual artist and professor Bjørn Nørgaard. The place was built and is run by the Container Academy Foundation in collaboration with AHC, which helps to develop the studio community and the artistic program. The Art Hub Residency program is temporarily moving to the Container Academy until AHC moves as planned to Thoravej 29, Copenhagen NW, currently scheduled to open in 2025.
