A new series of Søndagskrydder live and online

Wrap is a centre for artistic production and communication, which provides a wide range of facilities to professional artists, on a project-to-project basis. Wrap is artist-run, but none of our facilities are exclusively reserved for any particular artist. Our tools and spaces are maintained and organised by knowledgeable professionals and our prices are subsidised in order to reflect the means of most artists, and to maintain an inclusive profile.

We also initiate and curate various artistic projects that we believe benefit the artistic communities surrounding the centre.

Søndagskrydder family-friendly matiné event starting 27.09

Sunday the 27th of September we invite you to join us for an afternoon full of Workshops, art experiences and great food! Søndagskrydder is a family friendly matiné event where we showcase work and projects by some of the many great artists in our extended network, at a sociable event with a cookery course that culminates in a wonderful meal served directly in our canteen.

This time we are very pleased to present a vocal workshop with the extremely talented and renowned composer, singer, writer and performer, Alwynne Pritchard - as well as a preview of her forthcoming performance of commissioned new works by various composers, DOG/GOD II. We will also be showing the exhibition Du finn meg på kanten, with texts by the Volda based poet, author and editor, Fanny Holmin, and photography by Ørsta based Svein Olav Humberset.

Shruti Karkhanis from Hjemmelaget fra Hjemlandet will be sharing her recipe for authentic samosas and sauces from Mumbai, and these will be served in Wrap’s canteen with dal tadka and rice.

There will also be the opportunity to contribute to a stop-frame animation at our animation station, which is suitable for adults and children alike.         

Wrap's own aproach to curating

An important aspect of our mission at Wrap is that we should provide good opportunities for artists to share their work with an audience. To do this we have developed conceptual frameworks that are designed to support artists on their own terms, whilst striving to offer the most valuable and touching experiences to our audience.

Søndagskrydder is a concept that we have tried before. It’s a generous framework for family friendly matiné events that will combine exhibitions, talks, workshops and performances with fresh warm food that gets made in Wrap’s kitchen with a new cookery course each time. Thanks to support from Bergen City Council’s “Open Doors” fund, we have decided to make all the contents of these events completely free, and you will be able to join the excellent courses online for free too!

Through our Plastic Arena framework, we also offer artists the possibility to show their own work on their own terms, with technical and promotional support as well as other forms of mentorship where this is desirable. Plastic Arena is an opportunity that Wrap offers to five artists/groups per year, and which has already covered a wide variety of aesthetics and genres. It is particularly intended as an opportunity for artists who are consciously interested in exploring alternatives to more conventional formats.
