Inviting the public; KOLT Platform

There are two types of Kolt, one that is closed to the public and one that is open to the public.

An open Kolt have some days in the end of the working period that are open to the public. The participants get the opportunity to show the projects that created during the Kolt-week and examples of their work outside Kolt.

Opportunity for showing finished work

Unfortunately KOLT Bottna Gerlesborg has a limited capacity for showing finished work, and therefore has very specific requirements for it. Kolt still want to open the opportunity to view the finished work, because we consider it a good opportunity for artists to be seen.


  • The artist must pay freight or shipping of artwork to Bottna Gerlesborg.
  • If the artist has performative art such as music, dance, theatre, one can only show short parts of max. 25 min.
  • If the artists artwork includes other artists than themselves, the artist participating in Kolt must stand for costs. (It is perhaps possible to apply for visiting and travel support from your countries Art Council)
  • The artwork must be “finished” and ready to be showed/performed, without any additional preparation. Artists participating in Kolt cannot work with, rehears or prepare during the Kolt week.
