Good art can inspire, delight, provoke, revolt or startle. The brain grows when it faces challenges. In an overall perspective, art has an important role in social development, resisting the dark forces and superficial, material values. Art gives thoughts, stimulates the entrepreneurial spirit, builds sustainability and encourages consideration.
At OpenART, we create an energy field outside the traditional norms of elitist art. Here, the ambition is high and ideas are bold.Our work field stretches from Sweden and Europe to the entire world. We find inspiration in our international outreach and we learn to break patterns and raise the bar with every edition we organize.
For many, OpenART is a delightful experience. The participating artists acknowledge that they will be professionally treated and that they have an opportunity to develop themselves in an international art arena that has become a magnet for art aficionados and tourists. The artists and the people in Örebro become ambassadors that spread the word with pride.
OpenART is a collaboration between the private and the public sector. The attractiveness of our biennial results from our courage to strive for innovation and high quality. Therefore, it is always art and content that are the best voice for OpenART.
