OpenART at SM-veckan

Press release. Örebro, january 27, 2015

Four days, a tent, three guided tours and countless moments of creativity. This is what OpenART offers under SM-Week, which begins on January 26 in Örebro.

SM-vecka (SM week) is a recurring sports event, arranged by Riksid­rotts­för­bundet (Swedish Sports Confederation) in partnership with SVT (Swedish Television). This year, SM-vecka takes place in Örebro. An SM village is placed on Våghustorget, where visitors have the opportunity to meet with local businesses.

OpenART can be visited in the SM village 28-31 January. The OpenART tent is open Wednesday-Friday (10:00-19:00) and on Saturday (11:00-17:00).

“SM-veckan is a great opportunity for the curious to visit OpenART before this year’s edition. Together we will build an interactive installation, where participants can win one of three guided tours, offered during the summer’s exhibition”, says Nina Glimvall, Director of Culture and Leisure Department at the Municipality of Örebro.

Ope­nART is an art event orga­nized in Örebro every two years. The main pur­pose is to give peo­ple the oppor­tu­nity to encounter art in a dif­fer­ent way, in the city cen­ter, shop­ping malls, dis­play win­dows, facades, on the water, around the cas­tle, in parks and other unex­pected places in cen­tral Örebro. OpenART is a collaboration between the private and public sectors.

The fifth edi­tion of Ope­nART takes place June 14 – Sep­tem­ber 6, 2015.
