Kunstkollektivet 8B

General information

Brief description of residency program

8B is a small art and design ‘colony’ of sorts, where textile artists and ceramics artists can become absorbed in their work and experiment with their artistic expression. This sets in motion creative development and the production of first works, which are then featured in an art exhibition.

Artists and designers live and work in the former general store of Unnerud, carefully remodelled for its new purpose and close to the town of Egebjerg in Odsherred Municipality. The workshops, common areas, private rooms and garden create a relaxed and informal framework for creativity and further development of individual styles. The artistic community within 8B provides inspiration and invites new collaborations.

8B Kunst i brug (meaning ‘art in use’ or ‘applied art’) is run by volunteers who, together with artists residing in Odsherred, provide an opportunity to draw upon experience, when it comes to exposure and the sale of artistic works.
