Servas Art Workshop "Come and Create" (Sweden)

Dear Servas Artists!

Servas Sweden invites you to apply for the Servas Art Workshop ”Come and Create!” in Uppsala, Sweden, 12-19 of June 2022.

During this week we invite 12 artists to come and live with Servas hosts in Uppsala and at the same time to join us in a creative workshop of creating through recycling. This is inspired by Servas environmental activities and a worldwide pursuit of sustainable development.

We also offer historical and artistic sightseeing of Uppsala and of course, get together dinners and meetings. There will be the opportunity to take part in interesting workshops, visit a glass-blower studio, some local artists and handicrafts.

We have the use of a studio in the Cultural Center of Gottsunda where we can, at the end of the week, present our created art for the public in a vernissage.

The organizers of the meeting will arrange three dinner parties, art material and fees in museums. Each participant receives a free bus pass for the whole week on the local traffic network. Only whatever you choose for lunch will be additional.

The cost for participants for the whole week is 3000 SEK.

We would like to inform you that entry to Sweden can be regulated due to the Covid-19 and the actual recommendations must be respected. At present, those who have received 2 doses of vaccine, or have had the Covid virus in the last 6 months and show a negative PCR test 48 hours prior to the entry and are Covid symptom-free are allowed to come. Situation can change, of course. Based on that and for the safety of all participants we require Covid vaccination certificate (i.e. vaccination with at least 2 doses and booster doses) or a medical approval of disease in the last 6 month and no symptoms of disease. We are going to keep all safety rules and hygienic measures as long as possible during the workshop.
