FREMMEDART

About This Project

I want to build a new cultural center focusing on large-format photographs in combination with a drive-in food and store in Lofoten, workshops and courses.

I bought a large plot in Flakstad municipality at Ramberg beach in Lofoten in August 2015 and has since worked intensively to plan the construction of a gallery, courses and workshops with a focus on photo transferred on different materials.

 

Work areas for those who want to work with analog techniques, large format cameras and darkroom, and those who want to learn how to transfer their images on substrates like watercolor paper, textile, wood, metal, ceramics, glass or anything else and make permanent copies in various formats that are not made on a digital printer, but made by hand using old photo techniques and self-composed phototoemulsions.

This may be of interest to photographers, visual artists, craftspeople, both professionals and amateurs of all ages. I have held courses in this field for over 40 years and have the experience and the expertise needed. I also know well about the most what is happening in this field worldwide and am in contact with many other people who work and teach in this field.

 

Lofoten attracts many photography enthusiasts and have several firms who rely on photography, but there are no similar establishments there. I hope to build a business that can attract many and benefit many, locally, nationally and internationally. The concept will be completed and developed further during 2017.

For å lage en realistisk forrettningsplan og utvikle en markedsanalyse må det engasjeres profesjonelle aktører. Det skal lages arkitektskisser for arealdisposisjon og for bygninger. I oppstartfasen skal det kunne holdes arrangementer og kurs i de lokalene jeg disponerer i Vestfold, i Horten. Jeg ønsker å invitere til et samarbeid i ulike former.

 

Det er mange sider i et slikt prosjekt, hvor jeg kunne trengt rådgivning og hjelp. Jeg samler derfor penger som skal kunne brukes som startkapital i denne planleggingsfasen.

 

Pengene skal brukes til å ferdigutvikle konseptet, finne investorer og sikre fremdriften i dette prosjektet.

Galina Manikova er en initiativtaker til dette prosjektet i samarbeid med Igal Voronel, som er prosjektleder. Begge har solid erfaring i det de er ansvarlige for.

 

Galina Manikova er ansvarlig for idéutvikling, kurs og hele den kunstneriske delen av prosjektet.

 

Igal Voronel har tidligere vært prosjektleder for det nye Hovedbibliotekprosjektet i Oslo og utviklingen av “Læringshage” konseptet, som er en visjon for fremtiddrettet læringsmiljø i bedrifter.

 

I løpet av 2017 regner vi med å kunne ferdigstille forrettningsplan, lage arkitektskisser og legge frem en byggesøknad til kommunen.
