Art and creative expressions on young people’s terms
Access to aesthetics and creative expressions are basic needs. For teenagers and young adults, expressing themselves creatively on their own terms is especially important. Nevertheless, there is very little focus on creative subjects both in school and in leisure time. Whose responsibility is this and how are we to reach young people on their own terms?
The seminar is in Norwegian.
We present experiences from three youth projects: The illustration workshop by Byverkstedet and Oslo Open, Oslo Art and Knowledge Workshop by Kunsthall Oslo and Blikkåpnerne by Kunstnernes Hus and several other art institutions. The presentations are followed by a panel conversation between Marit Silsand (PRAKSIS Teen Advisory Board), Trond Hugo Haugen (Oslo Open), Anniken Dedekam Råge (PLNTY), Christian Slaaen (FUBIAK), and moderator Miriam Haile (Agenda X).
How do projects aimed at a young audience affect the art institutions and the cultural field in the long term?
