Patricia Palma

We are truly happy to welcome Patricia Palma to our team as project manager / communicator! Patricia is a journalist where, most recently, she has been reporting for the local news paper Södra Sidan. She is also one of the co-founders of Orten i Fokus, a network and media platform focusing on perspectives from the Swedish suburban areas.

We are also grateful to have Heather Ferrigan filling the role until Patricia return from her parental leave.

Next year we are launching a new website and graphic concept in collaboration with Sepidar Hosseini & Agnes Florin.

Miriam Andersson Blecher is the new director of Botkyrka konsthall! Miriam already has an extensive experience of the arts institution’s many facets. She started as a curator for programme and education in 2007 and has been the acting director since 2015.

In the coming couple of years, Botkyrka konsthall is developing an arts institution in Fittja where a new exhibition space is being built and will open in 2018.

“I see Botkyrka konsthall as a space for contemporary art providing opportunities to reflect upon the important questions of our time. We have the possibility of being an open democratic space where new meetings may take place, and other stories told. I believe that an art space may have a significant meaning from a local perspective, in our case from within a residential area, as well as connecting to a global context.”

Miriam Andersson Blecher is officially director from 1 July, 2016.
