I think Travers offers a unique opportunity for getting an insight, or “traversing” into other creative fields. This is something which I believe is fruitful for personal development as well as potential future collaboration. – Freja Kir, participating artist in camp 1
TRAVERS is a cross-artistic journey that aims to pose questions and search for answers. TRAVERS will provide the space to challenge habits, mind-sets and attitudes. It will seek out new processes and artistic languages, and cultivate the art of encounter. TRAVERS aims to create a strong society of artists, who will develop and expand the interdisciplinary field during exceptional opportunities for working across formats and territories.
TRAVERS will host three collaborative camps in November 2018, May 2019 and June 2020. These residencies will offer an opportunity to found new, egalitarian workspaces, where artists can work and wonder together in a shared artistic laboratory.
The TRAVERS camps are open to all artists and scholars. The journey is free and offers various ways of joining.

He was the first graphic novelist to be awarded the Danish Art Foundation’s three-year work grant for the trilogy Danskertrilogien – a poetic and emotionally tough graphic novel about the development of his Turkish/Armenian father’s life from a deserter in the Turkish army to a drug dealer in Christiania and recognized Danish citizen.
