School's out! I've said "goodbye" to my students and "see you in August" to my colleagues. This was my first year as a teacher and first time following a group like this. It's been exciting with lots of laughs, challenges, new insights and good vibes. I have had the most wonderful students and I feel a bit sad that our year together has ended. Yet, it's very nice to have a summer break.
I have been so lucky with scholarships in 2018! Four days ago, I found out that I've received Konstnärsnämndens arbetsstipendium (The Swedish Arts Grants Committee working grant) for 2018. Totally unexpected, but I feel extremely grateful and eager to start all of those projects that I've put on hold, or at least some of them, and buy the equipment I've been drooling over for so long. I'll spend you well grant, I promise.
And on top of all of this, We Float and Åkervinda have both received support from Kulturrådet (Swedish Arts Council) to go on tour. So, I'll see you out on the road!
That was all for now! Now, let's all enjoy the long summer nights and the company of friends and loved once (aka all the dogs we can find).
