The workshop is dealing with the topics of ecology and the new media
art/sound art, and the participants will be working with solar powered
installations of small art, sound gardens with mixed contents of plants,
electronics and what the workshop participants will find possible. The
different installations will together form a bigger collective installation
that will be exhibited to the public at the end of the workshop, saturday
the 13th june.
The workshop is led by french new media artist Nathalie Fougeras together
with the sound artist Björn Eriksson, who together initiated and manages the
Upgrade projects in Sweden.

The workshop takes place in the north of Sweden in a grandieuse landscape in
the nearness of the high mountain and the wild nature, but also close to the
Östersund city at the Birka folkhögskola just near the big lake Storsjön.
Östersund has good travel communications with fast train from Stockholm. The
workshop and living is free of charge, a room for each participant. The food
is at your charge.
Come follow a week of curious art making and exploring of new fields. The
workshop is open to all interested in different ages and regardless of the
individual technical skills. The workshop group solves together with the
workshop leaders the technical problems that might arise and therefore noone
that feels curiosity about this should hesitate in applying.

The workshop is free of costs, including the living at Birka during this 1
week and for all participants (except food).
