Index Residents

Index’ major learning initiative is Index Residents. Functioning as an open-ended platform for collaboration, over 120 students from school classes and social groups from across Stockholm take up residency within Index for one year. This residency takes a long-term approach, allowing topics to evolve and develop in relation to the interests of the participants. Index Residents participate in exhibition workshop series plus specialised visits to artists studios, art schools, film screenings and the like, providing a platform for young people to meet art face to face.

Index Teen Advisory Board

Index Teen Advisory Board, paid positions for eight young people from across Stockholm and Uppsala, is an integral part of our programming. The board actively supports decision making and evaluation, and organize events. The aim is to bring together a group of young people with differing cultural backgrounds, languages and life experiences and reflect together on the role and potential of culture today, and implement ideas into the agenda of the organization.

Open Workshop Series

During each exhibition at Index there is a parallel series of workshops that illuminate and demonstrate some of the key themes presented in the exhibition. These practical workshops are designed for students of all ages. Upcoming workshops are announced here or contact us to arrange for your class to participate.

Higher education

Index collaborates with many universities and art academies through ongoing partnerships and co-operations. We offer students insight into our curatorial practice and the work of important contemporary artists. We regularly collaborate with courses such as Curatorlab from Konstfack, the Art & Architecture programme at KKH, the Konstnärliga forskarskolan, Umeå Academy of Fine Arts – Umeå University, and many others.


Index regularly offers opportunities for internships for students and people new to the industry.

Learning Exhibition Space

Index has a space dedicated to learning and educational activities. Facing the waterfront with large windows towards the street, the space is also an exhibition platform for works that are being developed in connection to the pedagogical activities.
