PRAKSIS is an Oslo-based not-for-profit organisation running arts residencies that focus on developing artistic practice through discussion and shared experience.
Our name PRAKSIS, Norwegian for practice, also invokes the English word ‘praxis’: the fusion of theory and practice. This represents our central ethos: to support creative practitioners, and to foreground the processes of making, thinking, discussion and exchange essential to all successful works of art.
PRAKSIS aims to open the artistic process up to a wide audience, and encourage a deeper engagement with and understanding of contemporary art – getting people excited about what artists do, not just what they produce.
Community – local, national and international – is key to PRAKSIS’s thinking. We aim to link talented arts professionals from around the world to the Norwegian arts scene and its wider community, building links and enabling public access wherever we can.
