Crisis?

What is the state of the Nordic picture book today? Is there a crisis?

What are the market conditions for the picture book in the Nordic countries? Governmental support? Status?

These questions, and many more, will be discussed during a one-day-seminar in Stockholm on the 12th of November. Participating in the program are:

Jenny Lantz, who will present her research on the concept of quality in the field of cultural production.

Anne Schäffer, Norwegian critic, who will talk about governmental support of literature in Norway.

Pija Lindenbaum, Swedish picture book artist, will discuss her work in conversation with Ulla Rhedin, picture book expert and Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award jurymember.  

The seminar is free and open for all. It is arranged by the Nordic Watercolor Museum, in cooperation with Stockholm University of Arts, Crafts & Design (Konstfack) and Swedish Association of Illustrators and Graphic Designers (Svenska Tecknare).
