Our mission is to enable children and youth to experience and express themselves through art. Besides artists in residencies, we host seminars, workshops and conferences. Seanse believe in an expanded and improved art practice in education, developing partnerships between artists, schools and kindergartens. One of our partners are the Norwegian Cultural Schoolbag program. If you wish to learn more about this program you will find more information by following the link here: https://www.artsforyoungaudiences.no/
Seanse Art Center is located at Volda University College and is funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research, Ministry of Culture/Arts Council Norway, Møre and Romsdal County, Volda University College and others.
In 2018, Seanse celebrated artist number 500 in residence in Volda since we began our work in 2004. In 2019 we will celebrate our 15th anniversary! The collaboration with Volda University College gives us access to one of the country's widest expertise environments in the field of art, as well as good premises for artistic work. We also arrange meetings with target groups and test audiences where appropriate.
