About us

The North Norwegian Art Centre (NNKS) is a regional centre for visual art, comprising the entire region of Northern Norway. While our administration, gallery and artist residency is located in Svolvær, Lofoten, NNKS carries out an extensive range of activities in the region, focusing on contemporary art and crafts.

NNKS is owned by the Artist Associations of Northern Norway (NNBK and NKNN) and receives funds from Art Council Norway, the counties of Nordland, Troms and Finnmark and our host municipality Vågan.
