Uncertainties is a theme that marks our present times.

Worries and thoughts on what is considered right or wrong, not knowing what is true and false, all the challenges that the world is facing, and a feeling of insecurity in relation to oneself and others.

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. Guided by art educators Kerstin Gezelius and Saadia Hussain.

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 are: Saadia Hussain and Kerstin Gezelius.

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.


Junior Residence is a collaboration between the Multicultural Centre and Botkyrka Konsthall.
