This is both artistic projects connected to the gallery and projects about developing the creative business in the town and region. Scroll down to read more about the different projects!

 
 

Photo Artist Residency

For a trial period of two years, we will welcome in total five artists to our Photo Artist Residency. The artists will live and work in Kristiansund for a period of 3–6 weeks. During this time they will do activitities such as exhibitions and/or workshops. The first artist was here in August/September 2017. The next will visit us from mid-January 2018 and stay until mid-February 2018.


"Fra Gråpapir til Galleri"

The project aims to support young local artist through giving them a space where they can show their work. The project is open to all kinds of artistic expressions. We encourage young artists living in Møre and Romsdal County to apply to be a part of the project, and exhibit their art in our gallery.


Creative Business Network

This project, wich is still in a early phase, is looking into the possibilities of creating a business network for companies in the creative industry in Kristiansund and the Nordmøre region. We will explore the interest for such an network and what possible members think that a network of this type needs to be able to offer for it's members.

Photo Artist Residency

 

During a period of two years (2017-2018), we will invite five (5) artists to live and work for a couple of weeks in the small and charming coastal town of Kristiansund, located on the North West Coast of Norway. The residency is open to professional, foreign or national, artist within film and photography.

 


Short about the residency

The Photo Artist Residency is a pilot project with support from Møre and Romsdal County. The aim is to see how such an residency can make the region a more attractive place for artists, and how this kind of artistic ifnluences can benefit the local communities.

The chosen artists bus be prepared to be quite self reliant when in Kristiansund. The Nordic Light Team will help out as much as they can, but the team also have other repsonibilities they need to take care of.

Fra Gråpapir til galleri

 

This projec  aims to help young artist that are just starting out, giving them an exhibition space to show their work . The exhibition is often shown at the same time as another exhibition (for example exhibitions with the Artist in Residence) in the Nordic Light Art Gallery which makes the art for both exhibiting artists, available for a wider audience. The project is supported by Møre and Romsdal County.

 


 

about the project

We encourage all young/aspiring, local artists who live in Møre & Romsdal and want to show their work locally to contact us to discuss the possibilities for an exhibition.

Nordic Light will provide you with a gallery space where you can show your work and use our network and resources to market your exhibition. The artist must prepare and produce the art work and install the exhibition themselves. The exhibition manager will be available to help with planning.

Creative Business Network

Nordic Light har tatt initiativ til etableringen av  et nettverk for kreative næringer ved å søke om støtte fra kommunalt næringsfond til gjennomføringen av en forstudie. Bakgrunnen til dette ligger i ønsket om en styrket kreativ næring på Nordmøre som sammen kan realisere større prosjekter, samarbeide om administrative oppgaver, selge hverandre tjenester og generelt samarbeide for en styrket kreativ næring i regionen. Innholdet og ambisjonene for nettverket er ikke satt – og vi ønsker å høre fra hver enkelt hvilke muligheter og utfordringer vi kan løse sammen.
