Summer at ÖK

17 June 2024 15:12

This summer we offer activities for young and old! Sommarhäng is of course back, the garden is in full bloom and we have a fantastic summer exhibition about birds in the art hall!


Exhibit – Thursday and Friday from 11 am to 5 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 3 pm until September 1.

The Conference of the Birds is the result of a large Nordic project where artists from four Nordic countries worked on questions about birds’ characteristics, habitat and survival. In a collaboration between Österängen’s art gallery and the Bird Museum, Jönköping, several of the artworks are shown for the first time in a joint exhibition.

Participating in the exhibition and in the public program: Becoming Species, Eyes as Big as Plates, Eva Bakkeslett, Ulrika Jansson, Ulla Taipale, LauNau, Jan Eerala, Gylleboverket, Maiken Vibe Bauer, Christoph Matt, Arternas Ambassad /Vems Vattenkropp?, Pernilla Ljungkvist

The art gallery is closed for the summer during week 30.

Garden meetups at ÖK Kolonilott & Skogsträdgård

Drop in on Tuesdays at 15-19 and Fridays at 14-16 week  25-33


Co-cultivate with us! We meet every Tuesday and Friday afternoon at the allotment to cultivate, create community and a wonderful place together. We do different things every week, depending on what the place needs. Gardening and growing together has so many benefits. Not only do we get even more vegetables and flowers, we also get more knowledge, more creativity and more community. It also means less work and less responsibility because we all help each other.  ÖK kolonilott is a place where you can both learn new things and test your own ideas. In case of rain, we are inside Österängens Konsthall. No pre-registration or prior knowledge is needed.

For those who are 6-12 years old. Tuesday – Friday at 11-15 at Öxnegården. No pre-registration, always free!
