Different projects in Nacka this week

These last days we have discussed several projects in Nacka:
  • What kind of art do we need at Isis pre school? Reasoning led us to a certain focus and we will probably choose an artist May 17, to work with their outdoor environment.
  • Älta kulturknut has limited time now to include their children (80% of all visitors) in an art project. Perhaps we will choose an artist May 23?
  • Budget for the prestigious art project at Kvarnholmen. Sketch is done, lets evaluate it!
  • Kulingen pre school need to reorganize their spaces. What about the art they've got?

Two meetings in Nacka

One meeting on how to remove an art piece in a pre school that has outgrown its former use,
One meeting on how to install an art piece in a pre school that has just opened up.
See how these things work...
