Sustainability involves practicing a novel understanding of the human place in the world. An understanding rooted in the what we have inherited from the past, our heritage and ways of doing embedded in the present context.
Traditional modes of production and cultural heritage are not expressions fixated in an image of the past. On the contrary, they are ingrained in a dynamic oscillation between continuity and change, constantly re-interpreted and recreated in the present by local actors and practices.
The global economic and environmental crises, entwined with social inequalities and challenges, forces us to embark on a process of change emerging from the creative re-combination of existing resources and practices. A multidisciplinary approach is key in this important journey. Culture has an inherent capacity to translate this process into a common language, interweaving the ecological, the social and the economic within a sustainable framework of development.
At NSF we incite to look and reframe the way we operate and correlate with where we are, triggering collaborative interventions situated in the local and global context through a diversity of practices and disciplines that can open meaningful connections and routes to make sense for sustainable futures

Residencies @ Moskosel Creative Lab - North of Sweden - Europe
We are proud to be able to offer artists (and family) a location where art, people, and nature connect to each other.
Moskosel Creative Lab is more than just a residency program, it is a home for artists. Built and run by artists for artists, our focus is solely on the development of art, culture and people.
We do not operate like a traditional institution as we believe in the power of sharing and collaboration.

Our residency program offers two options for artists:
1.. to develop your own project/research/skills, we have an open dialogue about residency costs which can range from 450 SEK per night to 1500 SEK (mainly to cover operational costs) depending on budget and the possibility of exchange.
2.. to be part of a project we are developing with free accommodation and studio space, or
At Moskosel Creative Lab, we strive to be a creative home for artists in North Europe, Sweden. We invite artists to make this their home for creativity, studio and residency.
Contact us to see how we can make your creative journey better, because a better experience for you means a better experience for other artists and for us.
Our Studios & Accommodation:
At Moskosel Creative Lab, we believe that art and creativity have the power to bring people together and create a vibrant community. That's why we started with the re-opening of a closed village school with 37000m2, transforming it into a hub of artistic expression and innovation. We renovated the space to include over 20 studios, a sauna, and a full-size gym, making it the perfect place for artists to come together and create.
In addition to the main building, we are also engaging with other older and closed down houses throughout the village, following a sustainable model. Our approach is that art and creativity are not limited to one place, but rather can be found and expressed in many different ways. That's why we are also building 13 tiny homes, each of which has been renovated and designed by artists, providing a unique and inspiring space for other artists and visitors to stay - at the lab, at the tiny homes, or at homes throughout the village of Moskosel.
Our goal is for Moskosel to become a silicon valley for art and creativity, where everyone involved benefits from the collective energy and strength of the community. By bringing artists together from all over the world, we hope to create a thriving and vibrant environment where creativity and innovation can flourish.
