Welcome to Arty Party, Kunsthall Stavanger's exciting new event for children!
Held one Sunday each semester, Arty Party is an event for children aged 0 to 12. Here we invite an artist to create a program that is especially developed for children. There are always fun activities, a drop-in workshop and a disco.
This spring's Arty Party artist is Fredrik Floen. Together we join Fredrik's universe, informed by his background as a performing artist and costume designer. Read more about Arty Party with Fredrik Floen here.
The Arty Party artist for autumn 2023 is Maria Drangeid. Together we get to join Maria's universe, informed by her background as a theatre director. Here we meet three expectant party planners who will organise a birthday party for the kunsthall. The kunsthall has its 10th anniversary this year. And of course you are invited to the party! Read more about Birthday Arty Party with Maria Drangeid here.
The event is free of charge for all.
Arty Party has received generous funding from The City of Stavanger.

Maria Drangeid er en teaterregissør fra Stavanger. Hun er utdannet ved regilinja på Teaterhøgskolen, KHiO. Drangeid lager scenekunst hvor rasjonaliteten både strekkes og forlates. I formrike og lekne universer undersøkes hun alvor gjennom naivismens kombinasjon av voksenverden og barnslighet. Maria er fast regissør i teaterkompaniet MÅGÅ. I 2022 ble hun utnevnt til «Årets Stavangerkunstner» av Stavanger kommune.
