Time, advice and rooms
Transit is both a site and a collaboration partner for freelance film makers, musicians, performing artists, fine artists and designers. We who work at Transit know that a dynamic and accepting environment helps many artists and their companies to develop both artistically and economically.
If more artists are given the conditions they need to gain strength, then we will all be able to partake in and benefit from arts and culture production that is both developing and challenging – An important contribution to the formation of an open and inclusive society.
At Transit you are given time to develop your artistic work for two years.
Those of us who work at Transit are always available when you need advice or want to bounce an idea.
We work in an open-plan office of 360 sqm full of inspiration and exchange.
The artists at Transit work within the fields of music, film, craft, performance art, visual art or design. Many work across multiple fields and art forms. Transit is aimed at those who are in a phase of development regardless of whether you have worked artistically for many years or just a few. The shared experience for the artists here is the need for focus, tools and structure in their artistic work, as well as a community to develop with and alongside.
Transit is a non-profit-making association for professional filmmakers, musicians, performance artists, visual artists and designers. Transit offers office space, workshops and coaching as a type of scholarship. In total there are 25-30 freelance artists in an open-plan office space who share contacts and knowledge over lunch on a daily basis. Transit is financed by Stockholm County Council’s Culture Department.
