Brief discription / 
(N) beskrivelse på Norsk, nederst på denne siden

Temporary Academy, hereafter referred to as "TA" is a time-limited and concentrated work-forum for artistic development in Kristiansand, Norway.
TA wants to offer participants and the people of Kristiansand a contribution that could lead to a deeper understanding of contemporary art, its functions and potentials. TA operates independently without institutional superstructure, project- based within a limited period in 2014.

The program consists of the following components:
- practical workshops for internationally recruited participants
- central meeting forum in Kristiansand, with public presentations, discussions, seminars and open lectures including zones for improvisation and action.
- a symposium including local artists presentations and performances.

Workshops, lectures and projects nomadically happen on different sites and facilities in the region of Kristiansand.

The aim of Temporary Academy is to initiate learning- and transformation- processes, individually and in public, in a setting of interactive situations and encounters, rather than to exhibit representational art to an audience.

Need in Kristiansand:
TA meets a need in this region, due to the absence of free art education and accompanying miljø.
However there is an ongoing development of cultural industries and entertainment- based productions, in my opinion many locally developed or presented projects lack philosophical and artistic depth. Arts potential may be underestimated or misunderstood.
TA wants to generate ideas, impulses and issues in communication with its direct environment, its multicultural society, and in a global perspective.
During my research I have examined a number of educational art projects, temporary and alternative art- schools, and taken my own experience from 9 institutional art-colleges, including learning their limitations, into account.
Within Temporary Academy we use experimental educational tools, learned through practice by artists, tutors and mediators.
Collective processes and improvisation are included in TA ́s concept. Through organizational independence, flexible structure and a management based on equality and selv- responsibility, we wish to make sure that these can occur and unfold.
