Maajaam offers a way to live and work in Southern Estonian nature. We are welcoming artists, makers, scientists, writers, hackers, designers, film-makers, sound artists, musicians etc who want to get out of town and spend some focused time for themselves or their projects. We also run volunteer program for those who want to help out.

We have hosted artist-in-residencies since 2013 on irregular schedule in our home environment. Starting from 2023 we are accepting residency requests all year around in the new residency house.


As a private residency space we are working towards being self-sustaining. To be dynamic we have created different residency programs with different financing models. Per project basis we organise residencies that are fully funded aimed at more specific topics. We also collaborate with other organizatsions who are using our spaces for their residency programs. The rest of the time Maajaam is open for self-funded residencies.

Below you see a list of currently open programs. Feel free to contact us if you have questions regarding any of them.
