Platform Nord invites to a Nordic seminar at the University of Agder 14.-15.November 2018

We ask: How can we promote artistic mobility? Does higher education have a responsibility to support young artists in establishing themselves?

Through two inspirational and intense Platform Nord festivals we have got to know some up and coming Nordic young artists. Our participants come from different Nordic countries, and are characterized bydiverse artistic expressions, but share common ground in being educated at the academies and universities in the Nordic region.

The young artists of today are expected to follow up graduation by becoming innovative entrepreneurs financing and justifying their existence through creative grant applications and business skills. They must be ready to navigate the system, building profitable network associations both home and abroad.

And then, they are supposed to create art.

Platform Nord starts the conversation by inviting Nordic art academies and universities to “dugnad”: identifying how we can work together to help our young artists build Nordic networks, international connections and cross artistic relations.
