Silence, to the composer, is like a clean canvas to a painter or blank white paper to a poet. Tabula rasa.”

Arvo Pärt Centre Residency Programme and Scholarships

The peace, the light and the silence at the creative spaces of the Arvo Pärt Centre are welcoming artists from all over the world to work, create and find inspiration. Their spacious residency room with views opening to the surrounding pine forest is open for composers and performers as well as creators from other fields – writers, visual artists, architects, film and dance artists. Centre welcomes solo artists as well as smaller ensembles, collectives or small working groups.

Their aim is to offer the time and space for open-ended, creative processes. During the chosen residency period, the artist is welcome to work and practise at the APC building as well as the surrounding area with no fixed requirement for a completed work or project.
