We were invited to present our work at the annual meeting of ‘Landsforeningen for Børn, Kunst og Billeder’. The annual theme is ‘Into the arts out in the world’ and Sisters Academy was suggested as a prism to perceive this theme and the overall activities of the organization through.
We have been invited to present our concept, methods and ideas at ‘Kulturcaféen’ at Oure Academy.
The Icelandic manifestation of Sisters Academy is on! It is planned in collaboration with Iceland Academy of Arts and Myndlistaskóllin. The preparations included a full course at The Iceland Academy of Arts, Arts Education conceived in the spring of 2016 and the actual current manifestation at the upper secondary school Myndlistaskólinn in Reykjavik.

We were invited to share our work in this cool inter-aesthetic format at the Rhytmic Music Conservatory in Cph, Denmark. The over-arching theme is Meta-modernism – Interestingly way beyond post-modernism and thus a confrontation with deconstructivism, unreflected critical gazing, there are no one-dimensional hierarchy and our experience of the world is also sensuous. Inspirational sharing to be continued.
