About Artscape: Artscape is a nonprofit organisation that seeks to inspire people and promote public art for everyone. During three weeks in May and June 2019, Artscape carried out the street art project ARTSCAPE SAGA – a tribute to the universal storytelling and our world's rich selection of stories, myths and folk tales. Artists from all over the world created large-scale public art in twelve municipalities in the Gothenburg Region. Ancient meets contemporary when classical folktales are combined with urban street art in public settings. Read more about the project, the artworks and the artists at www.artscape.se.
With support by Kulturmiljonen, GR-kommunerna.
