Artist Close By

Artist Close By is about having the artist close to the life lived in rural areas. We have brought together a number of regional and international artists who are preoccupied with the future of rural areas. They live and work in small communities and work with the local cultures, crafts and traditions towards new visions for the future. In this podcast we will take you to the windy west coast of Denmark, so you can meet some of these artists.
