SHARON LOCKHART CREATES NEW WORKS ON GOTLAND
BAC has the pleasure of announcing that the Swedish Arts Council has granted 198,000 SEK in support for production of new works on Gotland by the American artist Sharon Lockhart. Lockhart’s artistic work with film, photo and workshops is characterized by an artistic and educational philosophy that privileges the unique voice and experience of young people. She will continue her exploration of the social potential of art making on Gotland together with youths and our partners: Film Gotland, the Gotland Art Museum, Gute high-school, the Baltic Centre for Writers and Translators and the Swedish Korczak Society.
