MiklagårdArts is a young platform founded in September 2015 by an experienced Turkish cultural producer and an established Finnish artist. The two initiators, Ceyda and Erik, who are not completely strangers to each other, decided to join forces to pour their versatile know-how into a new platform for promoting exchange between the Nordic countries and the dynamic art scenes in countries like Turkey, China, Korea, Singapore, Australia and New Zealand.
MiklagårdArts aims at building alternative paths in reaching out for the diversity of the dynamic artistic scenes also elsewhere. We like to cater to the needs of the artists, collectives, and companies, and also want to create possibilities for innovative multi-genre collaborations around the world. The co-founders are also the ‘thinkers’ whose insights and connections will animate the projects operated by the Miklagard Art Exchange.
