EMMAS in Vilhelmina

27 October, 2022

Jan Philip Scheibe och EMMAS i Vilhelmina

So yesterday it was time for us to take EMMAS to Vilhelmina, and all said and done we steered towards our partners at @wilhelmina_fritidsgard

Once there, 7 expectant and lovely children were waiting. But for anyone who has ever created something truly brilliant, knows that it doesn’t happen on an empty stomach so the first thing we did was get some food before the big mission.

Satisfied and recharged, we went to a well-selected location and there began an intense and concentrated teamwork that resulted in a fantastic three-dimensional creation – the children’s own works of art!

We want to thank of course UG in Vilhelmina and staff and fantastic children, we want to thank @vilhelminafolketshus for the loan of space, lighting and for being so good, BIG, BIG THANKS once again @jan_philip_scheibe who guides and inspires the children in an excellent way to dare to do things that they have never done before. @jan_philip_scheibe is a fantastic artist but also an excellent role model that we are very proud to have with us at Ricklundgården!!

If you pass by Folkets Hus in Vilhelmina, take a look at this magnificent shape that was created yesterday. With the children, for the children and for all our children. Art is for everyone and we are keeping our fingers and toes crossed that the art next to the skateboard ramp will now be left untouched so that as many people as possible have the chance to see it!

To you, to every child who was there yesterday; Be proud!

Art in Halland residence grantee Tove Möller

Art in Halland residence grantee Tove Möller

In March 2023, Art in Halland invited visual artists with connections to Halland to apply for a residency grant to Ricklundgården in Saxnäs, (September 15-28). Based on the applications received, the jury has decided that the scholarship will be awarded to Tove Möller.

Tove Möller (b. 1986) grew up in Laholm and today lives and works in Stockholm. Tove is educated at Gerlesborgsskolan in Stockholm and Kungl. Stockholm Academy of Arts.

At the same time that Tove Möller goes to Ricklundgården in Saxnäs, the artist Helena Wikström, based in Västerbotten, comes to Halland with Halmstad as her base. Host for the stay is Halland’s Art Museum and Art in Halland.

In parallel, an educational project is also underway between school classes in Halmstad, Laholm and Saxnäs.

You can read more information about this residency scholarship and our art education project here on our website shortly.

Play in a band

Play in a band

Are you retired or have time to spare? Do you feel like trying to play or sing in a band but perhaps haven’t learned to play an instrument? Or maybe you once played but forgot most of it. In that case, there is now the chance to come to EMMAS without any prior knowledge and together with me Kristoffer, who is a trained music teacher, try playing together, completely unconditional. Have fun together!

The instruments available are drums, guitar, electric guitar, electric bass, piano, keyboard, ukulele and microphones for vocals. (If you own another instrument, you can of course bring it with you)).

The time is Thursdays at 10.30-11.30 after coffee.

There are a limited number of places and instruments, so register your interest before 11/9 with your name and instrument preference to: emmaskristoffer@gmail.com

Write “Band testing” in the subject column!




It´s time to start our OPEN THURSDAYs again, we offer brunch and we’ll start a bit calmly with a music quiz!

Come join us! Bring a friend or an acquaintance who hasn’t been here before, maybe you know someone who needs context or wants more community?

Start: at 09.30

Location: EMMAS

Warm welcome!

Okay dear friends, you know…Rome was not built in a day

Okay dear friends, you know…Rome was not built in a day

On our meadow slope, it wasn’t beautiful either when we stopped mowing it with lawnmowers the first (or second) summer. Nah. It wasn’t pretty. Initially. But! Now, now!! Now it is as beautiful as a beaten flower meadow can be! First it gave us a lot of joy there in June; bubbling life and buzzing and humming. With the help of the Nature Conservation Association, we learned about new species and we learned how the raccoon’s good nature is recovering. Then it was beautiful with daisies and flowers throughout July, so beautiful.

Now the grass is cut in the old-fashioned way with a scythe and hemmed according to all the rules of the art.

We will continue with this method and we are SO proud that we decided (despite two summers of less than perfect slope) to return to the only right thing in this otherwise culturally historic environment.

Thank you Nils for wanting to work with us and help us help nature on the trot! For us, it’s no secret that you’re a rock, but for those who read this and don’t know or know you, it doesn’t hurt to mention!

Hej! Vad vill du göra?
