Friend school project

Once a year we invite students at Elvebakken high school to Fotogalleriet to set up their own exhibition. The project is in collaboration with the photo students at the schools Media and Communication studies. The students produce their own works under the guidance of teachers and guest photographers, as well as the head of education at the gallery. In addition, the students are themselves responsible for the marketing, curating and mounting of the exhibition.

The project explores new education methods related to the gallery. By opening the gallery for the students' own pictures Fotogalleriet want to develop and challenge established understandings of art mediation. Fotogalleriet want to be in an active dialogue with the audience, and the friend school program is part of Fotogalleriet's education strategy aimed at children and young people. The project encourages the participation and discussion, and in this sense it is also important for realizing art's role in society for challenging and creating meaning.
