During the spring, Art Agenda 2030 searched for children and young people who wanted to take the opportunity to creatively express their thoughts about a sustainable future. Several contributions from Åland were received and shortly some of these will be presented in an art exhibition at the Nordic Institute!
Many took the opportunity to apply and the jury groups did not have an easy task. The works that were finally chosen will together present a fine whole from different parts of the Nordic region. The works give a picture of the young artists' view of the future and where they think the world is going. All works relate to one or more of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.
From Åland, works by Sigrid Dahlsten, Linn Kyllönen and Wilma Groos are presented. Inspired by Wilma Groo's work "Don't lose hope", 19 students in the Sculpture department at the Åland Lyceum have also created works on the theme of flying insects. The awareness of endangered species and the knowledge of the phenomenon of insect death have been present during the work and the works are shown in the exhibition.
When? 29.9 - 27.10, Mondag-Friday at 10-16, Thursdays at 10-20, Saturdays at 11-15.
Where? Nordic institute on Åland, Storagatan 9, Mariehamn
