Det anbefales at kunstnere fra nærområdet også bor på skolen, fordi mye av Kolt handler om at man setter et intenst fokus på kunsten sin. Vi råder kunstnere å ikke ha andre prosjekt, oppgaver eller jobb under Kolt dagene.

KOLT Kautokeino is held in connection with the Sámi Easter festival and will open the two last days for the public. KOLT Platform´s program consists of projects that the participants have created during the Kolt-week and finished work they have brought with them.
Kolt uses the “lecture-demonstration format” for presenting art work in progress and work that still is in the idea phase to the public. Lecture-demonstration is an informal showing where the work is both demonstrated practical and where the artists talks about the idea and process. The demonstration part of the presentation can be in different formats, it can be digital, a performance, a workshop together with the audience, an event, etc. The aim is to enable the participating artists to share their process with the other participants and with the audience. This will help the artist's own reflection of their work. The display also makes it possible for the public to gain more insight into how the participating artists work and ask questions.
If a participant want to bring a finished piece to show as a part of KOLT Platform please notified us in your application and attach documentation of the piece.
KOLT Platform will use Kautokeino school and surrounding grounds for any site-specific locations. We are currently in dialog with the Sámi Easter festival about other possible performance and exhibit spaces. More information about this will be posted.
Unfortunately KOLT Kautokeino 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.
