3F Sydsjælland supports local art fairs for outsider art

In November 2018, 3F Sydsjælland entered a sponsorship agreement with Næstved Cultural Association regarding financial support for the association’s art fairs, Kunst med Sjæl and Handi-Art for 2019, 2020 and 2021.

For about 12 years, 3F Sydsjælland has firmly supported Næstved Cultural Association in developing and organizing the association’s art fairs Kunst med Sjæl and Handi-Art. The art fairs are annual events held in Det Gamle Ridehus in Grønnegades Kaserne Cultural Center in Næstved in respectively spring and summer.

Particular for these art fairs are the artists who attend. The artists of Kunst med Sjæl are mentally vulnerable and/or socially vulnerable, while the artists of Handi-Art have a physical or mental disability.

The purpose of holding these kind of art fairs is to allow the artists to spread their art uncensored and free of charge to an audience who can also attend for free. Everyone is welcome to take a look and maybe break some of the prejudices and taboos that may be related to illness, disability, injury, vulnerability and homelessness. It is also a free forum for art and collaboration across city and country borders.

3F Sydsjælland has again chosen to support Næstved Cultural Association by renewing their sponsorship agreement by 3 years, valid from 2019 to 2021, in order to continue the good cooperation between the associations.

Visit us at the art fairs at Det Gamle Ridehus in Grønnegade Kaserne Kulturcenter, Grønnegade 10, 4700 Næstved.

Handi-Art will be held in Week 34 of 2019, Wednesday, August 21, Thursday, August 22, and Friday, August 23. All days from 10am to 5pm.
