Guldagergaard is one of eight ceramic centers in the world where international artists can apply for a residency.

The Artist-in-Residence program is an opportunity to work without distractions in a professional environment, to exchange knowledge within the ceramic field, and to start inspirational collaborations in an international atmosphere, while Guldagergaard offers professional support and dialogue with the staff.

In addition to the activities for students and artists from around the Globe, Guldagergaard also offers temporary art exhibitions, with accompanying tours, artist talks, communal wood-firing, and workshops for a broader audience. 

In the surrounding grand park, site-specific large scale ceramic sculptures, international contemporary art and learning is offered while following Guldagergaards tenets of ceramic innovation and access for all.
