It is a small step for humanity perhaps, people have been building websites for many years now but this launch is for us a BIG event.

With this new foundation to stand on, we can now reach out with information and current events in a good way. The website is also available in two languages, English and Swedish.

In combination with the website now being completed, we will also start using, and proudly display our new graphic profile.

December 1, 2020 will be a starting point and a mark for the restructuring we have carried out at Ricklundgården this the past year, at the same time is it the starting point of something new!

There are nice people to thank for this work now being done, first and foremost Malin. Malin has worked as a project employee since August and she has been the “fitter” for the website. Throughout the autumn, she has put a solid amount of work into getting this done. Thank you Malin, you have done a fantastic job !!

Jessica who works at the Näringslivskontoret in Vilhelmina, with Digitala Steget has been a companion throughout the trip and Kristopher from Jo Kommunikation. Thank you!

Jennifer and Moa at Ateljé Grotesk are the brains behind our new graphic profile that we are so happy with! It really reflects the feeling and atmosphere about Ricklundgården that we want to convey. Thank you, you have been awesome girls!

Thanks to Magnus for fantastic pictures, thanks to Sara Idenfors for a little emergency help, thanks also to everyone who in one way or another supported, peppered, encouraged and face to face or digitally offered a smile and friendly words.

I also want to say a BIG thank you to all the fantastic artists I have had the privilege of meeting and been in contact with, without you we are just a very beautiful house in a very beautiful place.

With faith in the future and love /
Tina Larsson, chairman of the Emma Ricklund Foundation

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:

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?
