Join us behind the scenes in the artists' workplace: The studio!

Trondheim Open was established by a group of local artists, and has been arranged since 2011. Today we are owned by the unions Trøndelag Bildende Kunstnere (TBK) and Norske Kunsthåndverkere Midt-Norge (NKM).

During the festival, which takes place every other year, over a hundred of the region's artists open their doors and meet the visitors at their own home field, where the art is created.

In addition to the open studios we also host workshops, artist talks, our popular Art Market, and much more during the ten-day festival.

We are also a network arena for the art scene in Trøndelag, among other things by organizing studio visits with curators for our associated artists.

Follow us on Instagram and Facebook to get updated towards the festival!

People love to discover that art is being made in their own neighbourhood

  • The purpose of Trondheim Open is to make visible and convey professional artistic activity in Trondheim and Trøndelag to a wide audience.
  • Our main activity is to arrange open studios every other year with artists in Trøndelag.
  • Trondheim Open will also carry out other professional events that help to strengthen the contact between local artists, the art field and the public.
