ArtCHAT is a 'not-for-profit' initiative started in 2015 by our founding partner and Creative Director, architect & artist KATie Hagen


ArtCHAT uses art, artistic activities and expressive art facilitation as a tool for community development and integration.  

The target group for ArtCHAT is primarily children and youth aged 10-23 years. ArtCHAT works with groups of teenagers from both the local community and those currently still waiting to be granted asylum. Through ArtCHAT's activities our teenagers will be able to gain a greater insight into their own work, gain a sense of identity and understanding of place, and a greater understanding of growing up in Norway and Norwegian culture.
