Artist Recidency at Seanse

June 13th-June 17th I had an artist recidency at Seanse Art Center in Volda with my project Fortidens Norge (Prehistoric Norway).

In addition to myself there was one other visual artist, one actress, one musician, one group of three actors and one group of two dancers together with a musician having their residency at the same time as me. There were mentors available for discussing the work, and we all presented our work with an audience in the middle of the week. During my stay I mainly worked on how to present and communicate what I am working on with this project about interpreting rock art (petroglyphs). The advice and feedback from the mentors and the other artists having residencies really helped me formulate and improve my plans for communicating about the project.

In addition to everything menitoned above the recidency at Seanse also included the cost of travel, accommodation, meals and a salary. The recidency was a great experience for me and I am grateful to Seanse for supporting the project. Seanse also wrote about my project on their website.
