Index is proud to announce new innovative learning initiatives with creative opportunities for young people from all parts of Stockholm. Based on long-term engagement and active participation, the programs focus on learning in all its forms. After 40 years as one of the key contemporary art spaces in Stockholm, Index has fully committed itself to learning as a key aspect of our activities, opening to new and harder-to-reach audiences. 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 support 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. After an extensive application process, this year’s board will begin work in August. The board will also contribute to Index summer waterfront fiesta, I HIMLEN ÄR ALLA LINJER BLÅ on Saturday 13 August. The festival is made by and for young people, with live music, poetry readings, food trucks and arabic calligraphy workshops.
