Today everyone in Norway grows up surrounded by images, and in social media everyone is a producer, as well as a product. Nevertheless, the majority of young people do not think of the art exhibited in museums and galleries as part of their world. The future of visual arts culture in Norway depends on opening up and creating possibilities for young people from all walks of life to take part. This is the context in which Kunsthall Oslo is beginning a long-term project, the Oslo Art and Knowledge Workshop, to develop new collaborations with and opportunities for young people growing up in the local area.

The Oslo Art and Knowledge Workshop is a collaboration with Agenda X and Forandringshuset Grønland. The project has been supported by Arts Council Norway, the Savings Bank Foundation DNB, the Bergesen Foundation and Fritt Ord.
