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.
