VGK2020 KUNST

Mandate

Create public platforms for exploring new ways of communication and interaction away from mainstream culture to allow free flow of different perspectives. Take risks by visiting new grounds and not conforming to preconceived ideas. Democratise and decentralise art.

We aim to place value in striving towards our goals and not quantifiable outcomes.

Location

Venø Gård is located on the island Venøya in Stad municipality. Situated on the West Coast of Norway.

The 400 acres farm Venø Gård has been in the Venø family for more than 400 years. Farming on such a small scale is barely sustainable, therefore it is important to find new ways for the land to give sustenance to the community. Our answer is art.

We create events on Venø Gård and in the local district.
