With a gentle hand, objects are moved, painted with blueberries and glued with fish glue. Clay sculptures populate the site, creating the ephemeral Magic of Nature exhibit. During three summer weeks, 6 young people from Botkyrka worked to make an impression on the magical peninsula of Ekholmen.

about Junior Residence

Junior Residence is a three-week residency for young creatives based in Botkyrka, who get the opportunity to explore, experiment and create their own collective art project.

Youths aged 15-18 can apply for a paid summer job through the municipality’s recruitment agency, and through a process of interviews, a group of 6 individuals are selected for the residency. Artistic leaders and pedagogues year 2020: Kerstin Gezelius and George Chamoun.

We place great emphasis on bringing together individuals from different parts of the municipality and with different interests and backgrounds, and no one needs to have any previous knowledge of art, even if most have some form of creative practice going.
