It’s a space for living and working in Southern Estonian nature. We are open for artists, designers, film-makers, sound artists, musicians, writers etc who want to get out of town and spend some focused time for themselves or their projects. The new residency house will be opened in the first half of 2022.

Residency program

The artist-in-residency program started in 2013. We invite artists, makers, scientists, writers, hackers, etc to work and live in MAAJAAM. Until now the program has been with hectic schedule as we have accomodated the residencies in our living spaces. Now it is changing.

New residency house

In summer 2021 we received a grant to build a new house specially for artist residencies. We have finished the architecture and now going to construction phase. The house need to be ready in 2021. As the grant covers only part of the construction we are looking for help in funding and building the house. Please check our crowdfunding page for ways to help. We are also looking for volunteers for November and December this year to help with the construction. Check our volunteering page for details. See the architecture plans below.

Vison

Our aim is to create perfect melting pot in the middle of the nature for art and technology. To bring people from different fields together and think together about the past and the future. We try to provide spaces and tools for creative freedom to experiment, fantasize and envision.

Price

In order to keep MAAJAAM financially sustainable we will be asking for a residency fee. Currently we are offering vouchers. Concrete times for bookings will be done once the house is actually finished. The vouchers will help us finish the house and find the first residencies. Buy here.

Funded residencies

We will be also programming several art projects, so there will be possibilites for funded residencies as well. We will be announcing open calls for them quite soon.

Equipment

We try to provide possiblities to create all kinds of art forms to be able to combine them. We have sound equipment (mixers, sound cards, studio monitors etc), photo equipment (Canon DSLR, analog cameras, lenses). For woodwork we have saws, drills, routers etc. For metalwork (CNC plasma cutting, welding, etc). Also there is a laser cutter, 3D-printer and electronics workbench.
