EMMAS Art Pedagogical Workshop is now opening in Saxnäs☀️
You are most welcome to participate in our festivities!
You may be wondering why F.d. Rävlyan has now changed its name to EMMAS, and what happens here? EMMAS has of course taken its name from our fantastic artist Emma Ricklund.
EMMA’s workshop is mainly for children and young people in Vilhelmina municipality, but also adults and pensioners will be offered activities.
During the day when we are at work, anyone is welcome to look in, we will just be happy about that!
We want to create more opportunities for our residents to meet and work with different art forms, but also offer art and cultural activities that we normally only find in the cities on the coast or in southern Sweden. It can be for example; screen printing, photography & film, textile art, graphics, crafts, etc.
Our long-term goal is to become a vibrant and meaningful activity for our children / young people who live here. Children are our future and therefore our activities aim to give children and young people opportunities to find their own creative activities.
For us, it feels important to offer a safe and inspiring place where our target group should be able to develop themselves and collaborate with others, through art & culture.
EMMA’s operations will of course also visit other villages and Vilhelmina urban area, but our base will be in Saxnäs.
Through research, we see that art and cultural activities are an important health factor in the work to counteract mental illness. At EMMAS, we want to contribute to more people having the opportunity to feel good. That is why we are proud to be able to offer art education here in Saxnäs, for all our children and young people throughout our vast municipality!
The inauguration is scheduled for Thursday 2 June and Friday 3 June.
Here is the program for Friday. Some things are meant to be done outdoors if the weather allows, so it can be nice to bring something to rest your butt on, for example a sleeping pad or something. • Welcome and we dance the sun dance while we count down the days.
