Oslo is now the fastest growing city in Europe. Property prices and rents are rising creating new challenges for artists and small to medium arts institutions. This pair of seminars organised by UKS with artists Ida Madsen and Ingrid Lønningdal, brings together a range of experienced contributors - both local and international - to address the issues being faced and seek possible solutions.
PRAKSIS’s Director Nicholas John Jones will contribute to seminar #1: discussing PRAKSIS’s choice to run nomadically and the experience so far, and to seminar #2: looking at artist initiated models for affordable studios and whether there are potential solutions to the rising cost of housing.
