Elin Anna Labba och Pia Sjögren

Proudly presents Elin Anna Labba, author, and Pia Sjögren, journalist.

Elin Anna has written her first novel and Pia has written essays. They have been here together for two sunny, rainy, windless, windy and evergreen June weeks.

Pia: “We have written separately and gone on walks in the woods and mountains together. It has been quite wonderful! ”

Elin Anna “Something happens when you work next to mountains like this. Sometimes it almost felt like the text was writing itself. We are very happy to have started our summer here. ”

On a daily basis, Elin Anna works with Sami literature in Jokkmokk and Pia is a news journalist in Lycksele.

The jury’s motivation reads: “We believe Sofie Karlsson will have good opportunities to work concentrated, deepen her material knowledge and gather ideas as a residence fellow at Ricklundgården. Sofie comes to the mountains in Saxnäs during a period when nature explodes in colors and is visually dramatic. With her interest in nature’s shifts in color, shape and structure, we are convinced that the place will really add new perspectives to her art. ”

Visit by Sara from Sápmi Salasta

Visit by Sara from Sápmi Salasta

It is impossible to describe in words how this whole week has been so I have decided not to do it! Instead, I will tell you about yesterday when we finally got a visit from Sara!

Sara works as a project manager for @sapmisalasta and earlier last winter when we talked, we had many great ideas and thoughts about possible cooperation across the mountain border.

Exciting people who lives an exciting life.

We at Ricklundgården have the privilege of being visited by exciting people who have lived an exciting life, made incredible trips and created art all over the world.
Last Sunday we said goodbye to Kakan Hermansson and Klas Hasselrot who had been visiting us.

Hej! Vad vill du göra?
