Nuart produces both temporary and long-term public artworks as well as facilitates dialogue and action between a global network of artists, academics, journalists and policy makers surrounding street art practice. Our core goal is to help redefine how we experience both contemporary and public art practice: to bring art out of museums, galleries and public institutions onto the city streets and to use emerging technologies to activate a sense of public agency in the shaping of our cities.
Outside of Nuart Festival, our growing portfolio of projects represents an on-going art and education program that seeks to improve the conditions for, and skills to produce, new forms of public art both in Stavanger and further afield. For us, public spaces outside conventional arts venues offer one of the richest, most diverse and rewarding contexts in which this can happen.
Our work is guided by our belief in the capacity for the arts to positively change, enhance and inform the way we think about and interact with each other and the city.
Nuart Plus – our annual series of artist talks, panel debates, film screenings, workshops and more – takes place from 5th-8th Sept 2019 across various sites and venues.
The Nuart Plus symposium, held at Tou Scene Centre of Contemporary Arts, sees artists, academics, activists, news media and industry experts come together to explore a host of Street Art-related topics in the days leading up to the Nuart exhibition opening.
The two-day academic symposium is also supported by a host of off-site debates, artist talks, film premieres and workshops at venues across Stavanger exploring similar themes.
All events are free, unless stated otherwise on the program.
