Meet Art of Åland 2013

The artists were invited to Åland during the 23th – 31th May 2013 to craft and install site specific art in Ålands Andelsslakteri.   Meet Art of 2013 was a site specific art exhibition located in an abandoned slaughterhouse in Gölby and cooperation between artists from seven islands in the Baltic Sea. The invited artist were Lene Degett from Bornholm, Ellen Kock & Stefan Walkowiak from Rügen, Richard Kuusk from Saaremaa, Helle Kvamme Öland, Berit Ångman Svedjemo from Gotland, Valev & Kalli Sein from Hiiumaa, Anna Holmström, Mia Englund and Annukka Turakka from Åland. The group has had earlier exhibitions together on Rügen and Gotland. A vernissage for the exhibition has held 30th of May and the exhibition was open until the 16th of August.

lunchThe artists and their assistants build networks and took part in culture and nature on the Åland Islands. The group had lunch by the slaughterhouse and dinner was prepared together at the boarding-house. The 28th of May the group made a day trip to get to know the host island a bit. The day included a guided tour at the castle in Kastelholm as well as a lunch at Smakbyn sponsored by B7. The day continued with a visit in the artist Juha Pykäläinen´s studio and a tour to Bomarsund. Because of the art museum on Åland being closed for reconstructions during the summer it felt important to be able to show modern art someplace else in Gölby in the centre of main land Åland. Another goal was to show possibilities with the abandon slaughterhouse and maybe attract new actors to use it. With good publicity we managed to attract the local population and tourists to a different art exhibition. The number of visitors was 271 and many pieces of good art were created. The response from both artist and the public has been positive.  

NaNo

The goal is to continue the cooperation between the islands and an exhibition was planned for Bornholm 2014. Minna Öberg who was the project leader on Åland 2013 was there 22th – 25th of August to look at possible locations for a common exhibition. However with Bornholm leaving from 2014 we’re hoping for a Meet Art project to take place on Hiiumaa instead.

According to the CHARTER of the B7 ISLANDS NETWORK"Workgroups are the working bodies of the B7 and set up ...

... to help the B7 realise the objectives of their strategy;
... to develop the B7 network throughout the islands by acting as the link between the B7 and grass roots organisations, public institutions, societies, and associations etc of the islands.

The B7 Workgroups provide the contact network between the islands and carry out initiatives and projects of common interest to the islands."


The People-to-People WG is a working group of B7 Baltic Islands Network. Representatives from the seven Baltic Sea member islands regularly meet to contribute to a better understanding and to closer cooperation between the people in the Baltic Sea area.

We work to ...

... to spread knowledge about B7 islands,
... to support existing contacts between people from our islands and to initiate new
contacts

by focusing on YOUTH and CULTURE and implementing our main projects

... B7 Games project,
... B7 Youth Camps,
... Art&Culture projects,

in order to reach the goals of our work:  

... to support tolerance and intercultural understanding,
... to stop young people from leaving the islands, motivate them to come back and
stay.
