KC is an association run by artists for professional artists. KC-West is a part of the national organization of Artists’ Centres and covers the regions of Västra Götaland, Jönköping and Halland.
Our assignment involves linking artists to public commissions which provide cultural enrichment of the environment.
Our Art Consultants offer help when buying art and finding the correct artistic competence for a specific creative task.
We offer advice on questions concerning the creation of beautiful environments both indoors and outdoors. We help local authorities and the private sector.
We facilitate contact with artists for school projects such as the creative school, ”Skapande skola” and for talks and visits to art studios.
”Galleri KC” has exhibitions for contemporary artists and we provide a venue, ”Skissernas rum” for showing accomplished commissions and also sketches and ideas for new works.
KC-West provides possibilities for our professional artist members to make a more sustainable living in their field of work. It is a resource for reflection and for the development of the public space with Art in focus.
Through constant dialogue with organisations, authorities and the public in general we are a part of the contemporary debate in the West of Sweden and are able to influence it in a positive direction.
