Gävle Konstcentrum is a venue for Swedish and international contemporary art. We gather here to experience art which reflects our own time and which poses trenchant questions about society and culture. We offer visitors of all ages the chance to approach contemporary art in many different ways – through tours of exhibitions, presentations of art in public spaces, conversations with artists, debates, lectures, vernissages, and through creating art themselves.

Gävle Konstcentrum is part of the municipality of Gävle and is the focal point for contemporary art in the region. Gävle Konstcentrum helps to profile Gävle as a centre for artistic activity. We have exhibitions of Swedish and international artists. We have a well-developed programme, with elements that may be directly related to the current exhibition and/or related to other current and important issues.

Gävle Konstcentrum’s activities are aimed at all age groups – we want to bring about encounters that span generations. We cooperate closely with Gävle’s schools through our educational programme which is directed towards children and young people, from preschool to upper secondary. We also work with local schools in various types of collaborative projects, extended education or refresher courses for teachers, seminars and lectures.

Gävle Konstcentrum is an important resource as regards the municipality’s public art. We are engaged in investigating the city as public space and the importance of art for and in the urban environment.

Gävle Konstcentrum is located within walking distance from the city centre and is housed in the historical building known to Gävle residents as the previously forestry museum, Silvanum.
