I believe the arts, culture and literature enrich people’s lives, create new ideas and have the power to change the world for the better. With generosity and sharing, I believe culture should be made available to everyone. Tornedalen has the luminosity to light up, and take a position on, the global art scene. 

I returned to my childhood village after 40 years and it’s through my experience from the art world and the love of my home region that the idea to create Konsthall Tornedalen and Arthotel Tornedalen developed. 

The idea is to spread knowledge about Tornedalen and get visitors to come and explore the region and its unique mix of Swedish-Finnish-Sami culture. 

Welcome to share my vision.
