Recognizing the expansive geography of Norrbotten, the Learning Room is a physical and virtual space to share knowledge from different perspectives. The Learning Room invites guests to talks, film screenings, making circles and workshops of many varieties.

As such, the Learning Room provides the space to work with practices and organizations that might not find a natural fit within the exhibition format. In collaboration with Region Norrbotten’s craft coordinator, the biennials digital producer Karl Oskar Gustafsson has produced a series of experimental films about craft practitioners from the region. Together, the Learning Room is a testing ground to generate new insights and knowledge with crafters, artists and regional organizations. The Learning Room is made possible through collaborations with Aines Art Museum, Haparanda City Cultural Unit, Korpilombolo’s Cultural Association KUBN – Culture for young people and children in Norrbotten, Garland Magazine and Region Norrbotten’s craft. They are all essential in the creation of the room’s content and a prerequisite for its continuation beyond the biennial.

The Learning Room hosts physical stages at Galleri Syster and Havremagasinet Länskonsthall Boden for in-person events and broadcast a selection of activities from the festival.
