Konnect is a Nordic project that brings together art and environmental sciences with the aim of arousing awareness of pressing environmental concerns among the general public and decisionmakers.
Art students from all Nordic countries, artists and environmental scientists come together in 4-day workshops to learn about and discuss important environmental issues and threats. The students develop ideas of art works that can draw attention and elucidate these concerns. Selected art projects get a production grant and will take part in a common exhibition when Konnect workshops have been held in all the Nordic countries.
Participants are Art academies in all Nordic countries, as well as the Institute for Sustainability Studies, University of Iceland, the Stockholm Resilience Centre and the Nordic House in Reykjavik.
