Mobilizing Citizenship is a project initiated by Kunsthall Stavanger together with guest curator Kristina Ketola Bore. The art mediation project is aimed at young people aged 12-16 with no prior exposure to art mediation or formal art education. During the semester, the youth will meet and collaborate with six different artists and be introduced to artistic strategies and methods in a workshop format. One of the main goals is that the participants will build a sense of ownership over their surroundings and see themselves as autonomous agents with the possibility to partake in public discourse.
