Located next to Berlevåg Havnemuseum, Kvitbrakka was built after the war and was used by Port Authority as offices, accommodation and dining facilities until the mid 1970s. It was renovated in 2012 and is today an important cultural arena in Berlevåg and Finnmark.
Kvitbrakka is a place for sharing ideas and developing critical thinking with engaging dialogues. Kvitbrakkas Venner is a voluntary, non-profit, anti-racism, pro-equality and children friendly association, consisting of 50 members and a board of five members.
Every year we release a carefully developed public cultural programme including music, concerts, exhibitions, artist talks and creative workshops.
Kvitbrakka AiR started in 2017 and has hosted several artists from all over the world. Since its foundation, the programme has been gradually developing into a cultural reference in Northern Norway through international collaborations.
K_AiR is an international art residency programme for emerging and established artists, musicians, writers and curators.
We offers to ou guests an opportunity to produce artworks or exhibition projects inspired by the unspoiled nature and the social-political challenges of the Arctic region.
Artists are selected both through a yearly open call for grant-funded residencies and an ongoing application to self-funded guests. All professionals are carefully chosen based on project quality and conceptual impact of their research. We constantly seek to engage with diverse communities and make sure our commitment to diversity, equality and inclusion are at the heart of our activities.
Besides being a platform for artistic research and development for the artists, Kvitbrakka also aims to motivate the public’s interest in the process of building and expanding cultural awareness.
