Slipvillan has 5 studios used for various cultural activities, exhibitions, talks, conferences as well as working space. Two of the studios are used by local artists on a permanent basis providing contacts and help to the AIR. The garden is used both as a recreation area and for outdoor work.

Slipvillan has housed cultural activities since 2007. The AIR began in 2020 and is open to international artists, curators and speakers as a working place for periods of one to six months.

Slipvillan aims to involve the artists-in-residence in public interaction, initiating both aesthetic and philosophical conversations, and they welcome a variety of artistic positions. Artist-talk, presentation or exhibition will be encouraged in connection to the stay. 

Slipvillan is in collaboration with the artist-run gallery Studio 44, a central meeting place for the artist run community of Stockholm, and a catalyst for numerous ideas and thoughts in the fields of visual arts. ( )
