THE ARTS DOT is an annual international meeting point for artists and art lovers, invites artists and visitors to take part in a variety of activities seeking lively interaction.
THE ARTS DOT brings together talented local and international artists, collecting original artworks accessible to everyone.
THE ARTS DOT is a nomadic space that materialises into a pop-up gallery & meeting space in Karlskrona/ Blekinge county in Sweden.
The Arts Dot is a project designed to promote art, bring together local and international artists, and to make a connection. The idea was to organise events dedicated to arts, as a means of communication and promotion of culture, do a mix of arts and businesses.
The Arts Dot is an annual international meeting point for artists and art lovers in Karlskrona, on a beautiful Blekinge archipelago on the south coast of Sweden.
The Arts Dot is an excellent opportunity for artists to show and sell works directly to the public and a platform for networking, gather together, exchange ideas with possibilities of work cooperation. Do communicate, discuss, engage and share their vision.
Here is room for dialogues about art during the meeting. Artists share their experiences and talk about their work and career.
The meeting is a ‘living exhibition’ encouraging cross-disciplinary creative collaboration.
