Work for teacher and artists in X-Border Biennal


We are looking for art teachers, art education students and artists to plan and run art pedagogy in X-Border Biennale in Gallery Napa and Gallery Valo. The exhibition is open 19.6-6.10.2016, and the pedagogical program must be realized during that time.

The theme of the X-Border biennale is borders and crossing the borders. The exhibition is open at the same time in Rovaniemi, Luleå and Severomorsk. There will be 15 international artists exhibiting in Rovaniemi in Gallery Valo, Gallery Napa, in the centre of Rovaniemi and in Ounasvaara. More information about the exhibition is in the draft of the catalogue, which can be asked from Maria.

The pedagogical programs can be non-stop workshop for audience visiting the exhibition, or for example guided tours and discussions with the audience. Online-connection between the exhibition venues in Rovaniemi ja Luleå must be created in some of the guided tours. The pedagogical programs can also be workshops targeted to various groups such as children and young people. The aim of the workshops can be that the participants reflect the artworks in the exhibition and the theme of borders on personal or communal level.

The students of University of Lapland must explain in their application, how the work is integrated to their studies. The work can be continued in project-studies, exhibition pedagogy course or community art workshop. The students will get more information about reporting the work to the studies.


Monthly fee is 1539,46€ + holiday money (9%). Official work contract will be made between the university and the worker. The work can last for two weeks or for whole month.
