Operating in a time of climate change comes with curatorial challenges, because the subject and all the more severe situation can bring a type of ”climate fatigue”. How can art institutions undertake this challenge? What type of curatorial methods, exhibitions, and public programs may need to be developed? 

Welcome to a round table talk about climate, art, resilience and resistance! 

Folk och Kultur is a culture-political concept. Initiative takers to Folk och Kultur are Länsteatrarna i Sverige, Regional Musik i Sverige, and Länsmuseernas Samarbetsråd. The convent has been developed in close collaboration with Eskilstuna municipality and Region Sörmland and several hundreds external arrangers and exhibiters. Since the beginning in 2018, Folk och Kultur has taken place annually in Munktellstaden in Eskilstuna.
