Stockholm University of the Arts
Since April 2014 I have held the position as Vice Chancellor at Stockholm University of the Arts in Sweden. Prior to this I was Rector at Bergen Academy of Art and Design (KHiB) in Norway (2010 – 2014) where I was also Dean at the Dept. of Fine Art (2002 to 2010).
For the past four years I have been a member of the ELIA Executive board.
I have been actively involved in projects initiated within the auspices of ELIA and for two of these make the link between the respective projects and report to the board. I am co-artistic director for NEU NOW Festivals, which have been held successfully in Vilnius, Nantes, Tallinn, Porto and Amsterdam. In 2014 the Festival will be held in Glasgow to coincide with the ELIA Biennial conference. It will return to Amsterdam again in 2015 for a period of 5 years.
I am also member of the steering group for EQ-Arts and am active in both training programmes for experts and in institutional reviews.
