Tenthaus Oslo is a project space initiated by Oslo based artists Helen Eriksen, Ebba Moi and Stefan Schröder. From spring 2016, Mechu Rapela started as our project coordinator. 

About: Tenthaus Oslo's profile is characterized by an open, process-oriented form of participation from an internationally orientated group of artists. The context of contemporary art practice is re-examined through a broader field of activity with exhibitions, workshops, artist's talks and live performances. Tenthaus Oslo has developed from an artist in school project to encompass a project room and exhibition space. TO strives for excellency in art production and facilitates. Our program includes workshops for youth with minority backgrounds, ad hoc residencies, exhibitions, and events. With the launch of Toolkit and Sessions in 2016, we aim to strengthen mediation around our work with youth and artist practice. In the next three years TO will uphold its work with children and youth as well seek to find other relevant contexts to expand and explore our socially engaged practice. Our diversity policy will be further implemented by using migrants as gallery staff and exhibition guides. TO will have a large proportion of female solo exhibitors.

Tenthaus Sessions presents Toolkit seminar and publication.

Tenthaus Toolkit – Artists in Schools
is a set of tools for schools as a location for the production of art. Through a number of texts and examples, we define some tools which may be useful when a school wants to work with an artist or vice versa. Based on our own practice, we wish to use this publication to share some tools with artists, schools, politicians and other decision-makers who are involved in, or interested in these questions. The aim is to find good strategies for how a visual artist may participate in the Norwegian state school system.

Tenthaus organized Toolkit - Artists in Schools seminar, which took place on 2 November 2016 at Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo.
We wanted with this to initiate a conversation about the place of the visual arts in schools. Through a series of examples we defined tools that can be useful when schools want to collaborate with artists or vice versa.

The seminar and publication is supported Kunstløftet and Norwegian Cultural Council.
