"My father considered work the most important of all virtues. The Bergman Estate shall therefore be a centre for challenging and creative work. It is to be a place to withdraw to create in solitude, and a place where people meet to achieve something in common."
From Linn Ullman's initial project outline

Please use the designated form to apply. The application form is available from October 1 to November 28. Grants will be announced and communicated in january.

The Bergman Estate offers accommodation for a work period of no less than one week and no more than three months. Applicants with special needs can apply for travel grants. The Bergman Estate is closed from December to March.

Applicants must be able to document professional accomplishments and works, provide a description of the project they intend to work on while on Fårö, number of people (spouse, children, etc), and the intended period of stay. Additionally, applicants must specify how they intend to reimburse the community in the form of a cultural event.

The Bergman Estate is also open to group projects. This includes, for instance, theatre groups, film productions, or the editorial department of a media company. The Bergman Estate aims to be an international arena and especially welcomes applicants who wish to introduce a non-Western view across the Baltic Sea.

Applications will be evaluated by the artistic director, who in turn processes them for final assessment by the Board. Decisions will be based on the project description and the Bergman Estate statutes. When assessing applications, we put great emphasis on the description of the purpose and quality of the project applied for. Stays for study purposes will normally not be considered unless the subject calls for a presence on Fårö.

If the work during your stay at the Bergman Estate results in a publication of any kind, please mention The Bergman Estate (Bergmangårdarna på Fårö) in your credits.

If you have been granted a stay at the Bergman Estate, please visit the page Information for residents for practical information.
