KoK in english

This is Culture and Quality

• We are a nonprofit NGO (non-governmental organization) supporting the development of quality in the arts made by artists with a learning disability or neuropsychiatric disability.

• We believe in the capacity of the artist.

• We work with ways of displaying and promoting the arts made by artists with a learning disability or neuropsychiatric disability.

• We inform about the UN convention on the right of persons with disabilities: article 30 and the right to participate in the cultural life of society.

• Our firm belief is that critique promotes quality and development of the arts, hence our name Culture and Quality. 

We work with different projects

We at KoK think that Article 30 of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities is important. Article 30 deals with everyone’s right to take part in culture and the opportunity to create culture. Not only in their own interest, but also for the enrichment of society.

We want cultural workers with disabilities to become a natural part of society’s cultural life.

Examples of what we do:
• Organizes a cultural conference every year
• Awards a grant once a year
• Develops and maintains various cultural activities
• Runs and collaborates in cultural projects
• Runs a culture agency
• Magazine iMAGO – a cultural magazine

The KoK grant

KoK has a grant that is awarded once a year. The first award ceremony was held in 2020. In order to receive the KoK grant, you have worked with Article 30 of the UN’s “Convention on the rights for people with disabilities” for the enrichment of society and culture. Article 30 is a reason why KoK exists and KoK points to the importance of every cultural worker having a place and voice in society.

KoK selects grant recipients. A grants committee in the board chooses who among the nominees will receive the KoK grant. The winner receives SEK 5,000, a work of art, and the challenge prize “Angeldemon” made by Robert Söderholm. Conferences ›
