A21 Flavour Studio, Teurastamo
The fantastically renewed Hanaholmen opens its doors to art! Two new artworks will be inaugurated at the event: a mural painted by Mirza Cizmic, a student from the art school Kuvataideakatemia, and the new art corridor called Korridoren, by Susanne Gottberg and Markus Kåhre, situated indoors. Our chef Lukas Hemnell loves Nordic flavours and will make a three-course lunch of this season’s ingredients for the event. The event will be spiced up by different speakers, such as Mårten Castenfors, the head of Stockholm konst, who tells us about his visions for public art.
Price, including a three-course lunch and a welcoming toast: €50. You can buy your ticket here.
