A couple of talented local artists gave away their paintings to Unga Magasinets charity for the Swedish radio and tv show “MusikHjälpen” tonight! It was super fun. One of my paintings were there too ofcorse and there were a lot of happy winners there and ofcorse a lot of warm hearts that were happy to donate money for children in warzones that still have the right to go to school. ♡

Helping people through Art

I truly believe that helping people though art and culture is possible. Teaching someone to express themselves or just letting someone be shown through a creative expression. I am so grateful to be a part of planning cultural events for all people; the disabled, the homeless, the lonely and the youth.

For myselfe art has healed many things in my life. Breakups, emotional trauma, even my social phobia at times. Bringing my drawing pad to social events where I can escape and then later on interact with other people into collaborative art.

Young Spring Art & Our Festival

Soon its a premier for the annual spring festival for everyone called “Vår Festival” (our/spring festival) in Sweden. I have been planning this together with the local commune and the cultural arts center, Kulturmagasinet, here in Sundsvall for a while now. I am the one who is in charge for the aesthetic aspects such as the art exhibition, designing the festival logo and the posters. I will also lead an abstract art workshop in the middle of the square in the cultural art center. We will finish the workshop with a collaborative painting. The exhibition will be from 9th of May to the 22nd of May. We are 4 young artists that are exhibiting and next year there will be a lot more young artists joining us. It is a big honor being part of something new in the local community that hopefully will be lasting for many years to come.

The festival is mostly for the young scene but it is open for everyone and it is also customized for disability. We will even have a interpreter for the hearing disabled.

The artists on this exhibition are: Anna Isabella Sandberg, Lennie Karlsson, Amanda Bergkvist & Emmelie Berkö

Fashion show for the environment

image

So here are some pictures from the fashion show on the Young Magazine. The clothes were from the clothinglibrary Tekocirkeln in Sundsvall. I think its a great idea with clothinglibraries where you can borrow unique clothes for a small membership fee. Tekocirkeln focus on Art Nouveau inspired clothes! The youths also gave us an inspiring speech on how bad the clothing industry is for the environment. I am so grateful peoole are becoming more and more aware.

Also feel free to take a look at last weeks blog update where you can read about the upcykling workshop I held at the same day as the fashionshow here on http://aisandberg.com

Upcykling Workshop

image

Last weekend me and my colleague Kristina Huss led a Workshop at the local museum here in Sundsvall. The entire day was a celebration for the environment and earth hour.

We gathered a bunch of old jewelery, left over pearls, fabrics and what not that we and our friends had. An industrial company donated metal for us and the café ungamagasinet bought some tools and useful stuff. We made new jewelry from old stuff, upcykling in other words!!! We had a lot of fun and the kids loved it, so did the grown ups 😉

One friend brought an old shark tooth that he used in a necklace. One talented kid made both earings for her mother, a metal bracelet and a necklace for herselfe! And the creativity was flowing.

There was also a fashion show going on with borrowed clothes from the clothinglibrary TekoCirkeln.. For pictures see my next blog post at http://aisandberg.com

150 peeps at the gallery!

So the gallery opening at Galleri Granen was a success! About 150 people (a friend of mine counted) attended throughout the day and people got to try out the graphics technique “drypoint” live in the gallery with me and a few others supervising.
