About the project:
International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) will organize on-site and virtual talks and open studios to share the work of inspiring artists and curators in residence from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden with audiences around the globe. These public programs will bring together some of the brightest Nordic creative minds and support their practices.

Nordic Public Programs at ISCP will open residents' practices further to the world at large, reaching ISCP's broad global audience of 10,000+ individuals. At the core of ISCP's work with Nordic artists and curators is the belief in creating the broadest possible platform of support for contemporary visual art practices and cultural exchange while connecting to diverse publics. Moving beyond the borders of the Nordic region, the artwork itself will be at the fore in these Talks and Open Studios with in-person and virtual audiences.

Due to the impacts of COVID-19, ISCP plans a public programs model that is a hybrid of virtual and in-person participation and which will respond to increasing interest in finding new digital forms.

Relevance for Globus Opstart:
The project creates a platform for discussions on artistic practices with Nordic artists in a global context. Despite the limitations, caused by the pandemic, the project will contribute to cultural and artistic exchange by creating a platform both on-site and digitally. The project has the potential to develop and share new and unique knowledge for the future.
