Do you want to be a part of the international ArtWeek 2019?

At the harbor

in DOK5000

in Odense

August 10 – August 17, 2019

The idea of Art Week is to collect artists from all over the world. Artists who would like to meet and exhibit with colleagues and who wants to be active with their art in the 8 days the exhibition takes place. And here it's just you who are at the center - you can help create the good atmosphere by being present when the audience meets - and we are sure that will happen. You just have to tell your story and we believe that your art will be much wider in the beautiful environment that grows at the harbor in the summer of 2018.

Art Week will consist of several parts.

The exhibition consists of approx. 40 artists all selected and exhibits in DOK5000 at Odense harbor ( It will not be traditional arrangement with each artist in his booth. We make an unconventional exhibition where each artist is awarded approx. 7-8 (1.22 x 2.44 m) white walls and floor space with room for a maximum of 2 easels.

It is expected that the participating artists, during the exhibition, are active with their own art. Eg. painter, model, make sculptures or other exciting things. Dialogue and interaction with the audience also help make the participation exciting, different and evolving, for both audiences and artists.

There will be art events / artworkshops several evenings and daytime hours - these are currently being planned.

Sunday will be the children’s day

The summer is abounding with tourists in Odense, and many new initiatives are taking place on and around the harbor.

Storms Pakhus - - a huge street food market that attracts a lot of creative souls. It is within walking distance of DOK5000.

Likewise, there is also the island of the city (Byens Ø), located on the other side of the harbor. Here there is plenty of life in the summer. And the new harbor basin where people can swim, is also very near by DOK5000.

So, there are many good places for you artists to be a part of - also in the evenings.

All artists are selected, so that we get an art exhibition that represents several art forms, as well as to achieve a quality of artworks that are worth an international exhibition.

Artist's desire to participate in the social community at ArtWeek will also be one of the selection parameters. We have to be together for many hours under ArtWeek, so it's also important that you as an artist want to socialize with your artist colleagues.
