Mobilizing Citizenship (MC) is an educational project where Norwegian and international artists and designers are invited to work with a small group of young people aged 12-16 at Kunsthall Stavanger during one semester.

The first semester of MC looked at how young people can build ownership of their own environment, seeing themselves as autonomous agents with the opportunity to participate in public domains.

The overall focus of MC is to investigate how young people can use tools and methods from contemporary art to express themselves and be heard in today's society. MC is not a talent development programme, but rather an investigation into how contemporary art can be a relevant contribution in young people’s lives.

Curator: Kristina Ketola Bore.

Mobilizing Citizenship has received generous funding from Arts Council Norway.
