Enthusiasm from Art
The content of the Enthusiasm from Art digital remote services project is based on the promising results of the Flow from Art project implemented in 2020. The follow-up project will implement a remote service that includes a video link to explore the art museum’s exhibition and related workshop activities. The project is especially targeted at groups within the scope of adult social work. The remote service workshops are also being planned by groups of young people formed through outreach youth work, and the artists of the Wihuri collection are involved in talking about their own art and work.
The contents of the remote workshops will change according to the exhibition on display at Rovaniemi Art Museum. A total of approximately 10 different workshops will be implemented during the project, and the workshop sections are always related to the current exhibition. Live broadcasts will be recorded with artist interviews, and participants will also be able to watch them, in full or in part, at a later date.
The service can be ordered by municipal youth workers, adult social workers, municipal cultural actors, teachers, or actors in the voluntary sector. The project’s guided tours and workshops are free of charge.
NAN - Northern Art Network
NAN is a network of art museums, art organisations and art history researchers in the Circumpolar North that supports existing collaboration and exchange of experiences. The main objective of the network is the accessibility of Arctic art and the mutual cultural heritage. The network was founded in 2014 by Rovaniemi Art Museum and Anchorage Museum from Alaska. The other members come from Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Greenland, Russia, Canada and Switzerland.
The network aims at free, critical and inventive discussion about art and cultural organisations. The purpose is to highlight the significance of art, cultural heritage and art education of the Arctic, and deliver information to experts, researchers and the general public. The innovative cooperation and exchanging experiences develop and strengthen the practices of the museums and provide a solid foundation for future projects.
