Kind of like this (KOLT) is a creative workshop that brings together artists to work and explore together. Artists who work with different art forms, come from different cultures and have different perspectives on the creative process.
KOLT’s main result is not the physical things, but what flow from person to person. The result and our goal are for the participants to exchange experiences, participate in each other’s creative process and create new networks. We believe this is facilitated through working practically together, by working actively on breaking down traditional hierarchies and to explore different forms of collaboration.
The place, nature and culture are important to us and our creation. And every place we arrange KOLT at shaped the workshop in a unique way.
