Online Open Meeting

Tomorrow, Tuesday Nov. 22nd from 11 AM to 12:30 PM CET

OPEN MEETINGS are open to members and non-members to present ideas, projects and artists at work in rural areas.
THIS MONTH: we welcome THE KOLONIN. A group of artists who live in or around Arvika in Värmland in rural Sweden. THE KOLONIN is based in a former shop open to artistic practice and makes it visible and accessible to the public. KOLONIN organizes local art projects. They intend to contribute to an inspiring cultural environment, for the people of Arvika and for themselves to live and work in. Presented by Helene Karlsson.

We will also welcome Sara Strandby. In 2021 she started the Bystue (The Towns Livingroom) in the rural town Vinderup. The Bystue became a meeting place for inhabitants of all different cultures and backgrounds. Sara organizes creative activities, theatre projects with youngsters, singing evenings, drawing classes. It is also the local library and a museum, The "Artists Close By" are some of the partners. She won a regional price for her initiative!
OPEN MEETINGS are organized monthly. Do you have a co-production idea? Do you want to share information on your project? Do you have any questions? Do you want to sell a production? Are you interested in what others do? The Open Meeting is open for everyone to talk or just listen! Leif Persson and Henk Keizer are contact persons and moderators:
