Blivande Academy

Blivande Academy is a creative education format hosted by House Blivande.

Blivande Academy is where you get to take part in a new and unique way of learning and sharing your knowledge. At the Academy, you will meet experienced, creative and unconventional course leaders, to learn skills, crafts and techniques that will help you in your own creative, professional and personal progress. This is also a space where you are encouraged to become the teacher, to share your own unique proficiencies in your own way. Together, we can develop beyond ourselves.

At Blivande Academy, we believe in the importance of shared knowledge. We know that everybody possesses different skills that others would gain from learning, and that we will grow as a society and as a community through teaching each other. The purpose of Blivande Academy is to facilitate a sort of experiment in community learning at the border between co-creation and education. The result is a social circuit connecting artists, artisans, creators, techies, engineers, and whatever you can think of to a diverse crowd of driven participants looking to learn something new.

The Academy is a part of House Blivande in Frihamnen in Stockholm, Sweden, and gives you access to rooms, facilities, material and tools for both creation and education. The courses and workshops are offered in physical and/or digital format, and vary in length, form, cost and pre-required skills depending on the facilitator and the workshop.

Due to the covid-19 situation, we are following the official recommendations for preventing further spread. At the present moment, all physical workshops are limited by numbers, depending on the type of workshop and on the premises where it takes place.
