STARTS IN:

The Art Jam

Our event roots back to the wood sculpture symposium, that has taken place in Hojer since 1993. In 2018 we included new art forms, such as murals, installation art and photography, while the wood sculpture part of our event is still the main focus. Even though we made many changes, we are still an art event with roots in the symposium-world. International artists come to Hojer and for one week create stunning artworks from different raw materials. The audience is invited to follow the creation process up-front and to interact with the artists during the time of their stay. The artists become a part of the local community for a time, and experience the local nature and way of life. The outcome of our events is stunning artworks and great experiences, cultural exchange and friendships.

WIND, SEA, EARTH & SKY

Through the years we have developed different aspects of our event and in 2018 we opened our sculpture park “Hojer Art Grove”, which is a way of creating an artistic and cultural legacy for our local community. The park also makes contemporary art accessible for the public in the outskirts of Denmark. From 2018 we sharpened our focus on the local nature by using the theme WIND, SEA, EARTH and SKY.
