Cirkusbygningen i Sandvig (The Circus Building in Sandvig)

Since spring 2020 I have been an active member of Cirkusbygningen i Sandvig – an art- and community centre in Northern Bornholm. In 2021 I became a board member.

During this period I have coordinated various events together with the other board members to support and build up the artistic and cultural community on Bornholm, mainly northern Bornholm; two support parties, public kitchens, meetings for members to present or test their own ideas, projects, recipes, music, etc. Together with the other board members we have raised money for maintenance of the building. We have done artistic workshops for schools, locals and refugees. I am doing a dance class once a week. Cirkusbygningen i Sandvig was established in 2019.

Circus- and Art Workshops:

Together with other instructors associated with Circusbygningen i Sandvig, we facilitated 5 workshops for children, young and adult refugees and locals. Ann Skogoey did visual arts; Gitte Pørksen did circus exercises; Ida Marie Tjalve did puppetry; and I did dance and architecture. Ann Skogoey was coordinator. The workshops are supported by Ungdommens Røde Kors and Bornholm Støtter Ukrainske Flygtninge.
