FAC - THE WANDELBAR ART INTERNATIONAL
SWISS MOUNTAIN ARTS CENTRE
For some time we have been trying to create a new arts centre in the mountains of the Berner Oberland, in Switzerland. An old schoolhouse has now been presented to us - and - which has been kept in excellent condition by the local gemeinde (community). We envisage a multi-studio set-up with accommodation comprising of two apartments as well as separate kitchen and toilet facilities. There will also be an in-house gallery and a free space for the exhibition of art and installation works.
Two or three of the studios will be allocated for long term occupation by arts councils or organisations from key cities around the world. The other five or six will be available to artists within Switzerland.
"The fantastic location, breathtaking views, glorious air and sunshine will make this art retreat/centre one of the most unique of it's kind in the world. " Marc Rome - Director
