the Fair residence
Fairres was established in 2021 by Finnish musician Pi Viana. The residence aims to empower creativity through environmental sustainability and by offering ecological and healthy spaces for the artists. Fairres is located in the lovely city of Porvoo close to nature and various cultural or outdoor activities.
We welcome art professionals from all disciplines. Please use our booking calendar for reservations.
Fairres promotes local artists and their work by displaying the work of four residence artists every year. Their art is on display and for sale at the residence. We also collaborate with local events and cultural organizers. We strive to support and promote local artists. Therefore, all profits from any art sale go directly to the artist.
