one of the most western islands in the county of Sør-Trøndelag in Norway.
The residency is run by the foundation Sula Fyr in cooperation with
Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder (LKV), a studio and workshops house for
professional artists in Trondheim (www.lkv.no).
LKV has an international residency program and give
all guest artists the opportunity of spending some time at Sula.
Residents are hosted in the recently renovated lighthouse-keepers building,
a fully furnished and spacious two apartment house overlooking

of Sula’s lighthouse, the building has one of the most privileged locations in the area.
