Pikene på Broen

Collective of curators and producers based in the northeastern Norwegian town of Kirkenes.  Pikene på Broen was established in 1996 and has spent the past 20 years realising large and small scale cultural projects – they call these ‘border-crossing exercises’ which provide new perspectives on the north while initiating discussions on themes relevant to the Barents Region

Terminal B

Terminal B is the new Barents hub for genre and border crossing art projects. A place where professional artists can share their interests in the High North with art connoisseurs, an engaged local public as well as visitors and tourists to the Arctic. Gallery hosts exhibitions, workshops, debates, concerts, seminars and other activities all year round

Barents Spektakel

It is an annual festival in Kirkenes that builds cultural bridges across real and imaginary borderlines. Festival week consists of contemporary art, theatre, music, debates, film, performances and a bar concept. Through these different elements the festival becomes a meeting place for everyone with an interest in art, the cultures and contemporary issues related to the North

BAR International

Hosted by Pikene på Broen, the BAR International artist-in-residency program is open for artists of all genres who are interested in exploring the High North. The program facilitates artistic research of the region and is aimed at new art production and creating new stories. Through the residency, artists gain insights into and work with the issues that are locally rooted but at the same time have global relevance.
