A gathering of the ar(c)t(ic) tribes II

Collaboration between TrAP, Nordland Fylkeskommune, RAM galleri, Rana Museum and The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design


A gathering of the ar(c)t(ic) tribes II was a seminar on contemporary art, urban development and social change, focusing on art projects in public spaces. What happens when artists intervene directly in society? What is the connection between sustainability and art? Is it possible for art to be an agent for social change?

The industrial community of Mo i Rana served as the backdrop for this seminar. By inviting both Norwegian and international speakers, various approaches, traditions and completed projects are highlighted. The seminar targeted artists, architects, curators, art historians, employees at museums and art institutions, cultural managers, teachers and decision-makers within arts and culture.

Speakers and contributors:

The seminar took place during the opening weekend for the exhibition In the National Museum's Blind Spot at Rana Museum.
