Färgfabriken’s youth council is for you between 15-20 years of age who are looking for a creative context, is interested in how Färgfabriken works and want to be involved and have an influence.


Do you want to learn more about how an art center operates and also be able to influence Färgfabriken´s program? Are you interested in art, culture, architecture and/or climate issues? Welcome to participate in Färgfabriken’s youth council! Färgfabriken works with art, architecture and social issues through various activities such as exhibitions, workshops and talks. In our youth council meetings, we talk and work our way through creative methods in art, architecture and the environment.

Program spring 2024

During the spring of 2024, we will immerse ourselves in our art exhibitions and plan together public programs. This year, through a special support for young people’s own creativity from the city of Stockholm, we have a good opportunity to support initiatives and ideas for creative projects emerging from the participants during the youth council meetings.
