Vika Ryskina på residens hos Konsthall C [eng]Hello Vika![/eng]

Vika Ryskina från St. Petersburg har bjudits in av Intercult och Konsthall C mellan 22-30 oktober 2016 till ett residens inom projektet Young Curators Network. Projektet har hittills varit mycket lyckat och med varje utbyte ökar kunskapen och den konstnärliga utvecklingen.

I St. Petersburg arbetar Vika f.n. som kulturkoordinator vid New Holland , ett nyöppnat kulturcenter på ön New Holland mitt inne i St.Petersburg. Ön har sedan 1800-talet använts som bas för marinen i Ryssland ungefär som Skeppsholmen i Stockholm förr var militärt område. Sedan 2004 är New Holland inte längre militärt territorium och det beslutades att transformera ön till ett interkulturellt centrum. Under Vikas residens i Stockholm har hon hjälpt kurator Joanna Lombard att färdigställa utställningen Rummet är den tredje pedagogiken på Konsthall C, som öppnar fredag den 28 oktober.

[eng]

Vika Ryskina has been hosted by Intercult and Konsthall C this week (Oct 22-30) on curatorial residency as a part of Young Curators Network, the very successful and interesting exchange program between Russian and Swedish curators – funded by Swedish Institute. The network is expanding by each new exchange; knowledge is growing and artistic progress is being made!

Vika is a Cultural Manager based in St. Petersburg. She is currently Cultural Program Coordinator at New Holland (http://www.newhollandsp.ru/en/), the newly established cultural center at the New Holland island in the city center of St. Petersburg. The New Holland island was formerly used as a naval base, established in the beginning of the 18th century – in the same way Stockholm ’museum island’ Skeppsholmen previously was used as a naval base. In 2004, the New Holland island was no longer under the control of the navy, and the decision was made to transform the former military island into a intercultural centre – funded by the well known ”Moscow Garage Abramovich’s”, and in 2006, a competition was held for the restoration of New Holland island and its buildings; the winning project was commissioned by CT Company who co-worked with the architectural bureau of Norman Foster to create a mixed-use complex, which would include theaters, conference halls, galleries, hotels and restaurants. Despite best intentions, this plan was never realized. In 2010, a new competition was held, and the restoration of New Holland was awarded to New Holland Development and the American firm WorkAC. The island finally opened for public in July 2011 – for the first time since the times of Peter the Great.

During her week in Stockholm Vika has been helping out co-curating the Joanna Lombard exhibition (Rummet är den tredje pedagogen) at Konsthall C, which is opening tonight! Intercult wishes Vika the best of luck in her future curatorial ventures, and we wish and hope that we can work together soon again.

Annual EUSBSR Forum

PA Culture and EDI will be present at this year’s annual EUSBSR Forum in Stockholm, November 8th and 9th. This year’s general topic of the forum is “One Region, One Future”. In order to continue the work and spread the expertise, PA Culture will have an own part on the forum program with a session on Cultural Diversity How do Cultural and Creative Sectors encourage cooperation, inovation and inclusion in a culturally diverse Baltic Sea Region.

Today’s Baltic Sea Region is a pool of a fantastic diversity of people with different cultural, ethnic, linguistic and religious backgrounds. The ten states on the shore of the Sea contribute significantly to the diversity, however the states’ societal composition opens up an even larger diversity. This provides great potential for cross-cultural and cross-sectorial cooperation that needs to be promoted and activated, also in order to facilitate integration processes more easily. PA Culture and EDI invited the cultural ministers Alice Bah Kuhnke (Sweden) and Anke Spoorendonk (Schleswig-Holstein), the Deputy Director of the Council of Baltic Sea States (CBSS) Bernd Hemingway, the director of the research institution European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI) Tove Malloy and two cultural projects to join for that discussion. Moderator will be Europa Direct Intercult’s Chris Torch.

Onsdagen den 9 november arrangerar EDI/Intercult tillsammans med PA Culture ett seminarium med sikte på att utveckla samarbeten mellan kulturorganisationer i regionen, med programchefen för EDI/Intercult Chris Torch som Key-note speaker.

Seminariet är en del av Intercults nyligen uppstartade projekt Baltic Audience Links, finansierat av Svenska Institutet/ Baltic Sea Unit.
Intercult kommer genom projektet erbjuda intresserade kulturorganisationer i Sverige och Östersjöregionen en plattform för möten med kulturaktörer som redan har aktiva, regionala kultursamarbeten. Grundtema för våra möten blir Publikutveckling och verktyg för kulturens lokala samhällsengagemang.
Våra partners i Access Europa och i plattformen River //Cities är speciellt välkomna att anmäla sig till seminariet!

More information about Baltic Audience Links
The project Baltic Audience Links have a specific goal in reaching the civil society with the tool of projects and artistic interventions on micro levels which aim at bringing the society together by participatory approach. A theme we partners of Baltic Audience Links find worth investigating more than it has been done in previous projects within Baltic Sea Region. We would like to take a closer look at local audiences on many levels ranging from people living in modern neighbourhoods to those living in neglected ones, from young generations to senior citizens, from city dwellers to villagers.
The project aims at connecting cultural actors around the Baltic Sea, strengthening the civil society and its organisations as well as developing and building, through culture, the Baltic Sea Region society’s identity, both at local and regional levels. The idea is to connect a network of organisations, institutions and experts working with local development, culture, and social innovation to look strategically at the audiences they connect with on everyday basis. The aim is to contribute to complex common regional Baltic Sea cultural identity but also, on a macro level, to European identity. We want to bridge the Baltic Sea Region with European Union through joining efforts of two existing networks and one European project. We want to create a new constellation of actors within BSR and strengthen cooperation with BSR. The specific aim of this project is to widen and strengthen the existing networks: River//Cities and Access Europa, giving them a clear Baltic dimension.

A warm Thank You to Baltic Audience Links co-funder Baltic Sea Department at Swedish Institute; and to our partners Laimikis and River//Cities!
