INTERNATIONAL MEETING POINT FOR CONTEMPORARY ART | KARLSKRONA, SWEDEN
International Art Exhibition
Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, our event for 2020 has been cancelled.
Our aim to postpone The Arts Dot event is not feasible and too insecure to predict. We aim at delivering a high profile event for artists as well as the audience and in the situation right now we don’t think that is possible
• due to the current international health concern surrounding Covid-19 • due to governmental restrictions for public events in Sweden • due to national travel restrictions and international travel ban declared.
A collective art exhibition takes place in the most unique venue in the UNESCO World Heritage site in Karlskrona city. The cultural Norman-style building from the 18th century located in the centre of Karlskrona, on the island Trossö. This attractive venue is a perfect place to gather together, share your vision, exchange ideas and to make connections.
The city of Karlskrona positioned at the south-east corner of Sweden with excellent connections to the other side of the Baltic Sea. There is a ferry line from Gdynia in Poland transporting passengers provided by the ferry operator Stena Line.
If you’re flying in from another country, we recommend you to book your flight to CPH Airport, Denmark. From there, you travel to Karlskrona Sweden by train; there is a direct train Kastrup-Karlskrona that is going every hour.
