Welcome to Nynäs Castle for the inauguration of several new works of art, a guided walk through the nature reserve for an art and poetry program and an open art workshop for the whole family!

The program is part of the project Tänka med jorden (Think with the Earth/Dirt), revolves around Nynäs castle, by considering its more than 800-year old history, the surrounding landscape and the 3,822-hectare nature reserve. New works of art emerge here in dialogue with the surroundings, its history and invited young people. An experimental place where artists, young people and the public can meet in questions about how we live in, use and care for our surrounding landscape.
Nynäs castle is open from 11 am to 4 pm with tours of the castle, as well as the exhibitions Hållbara hus (Sustainable houses) and Barnens Nynäs (Children’s Nynäs).
All activities during the day have free entry. The project is run by Art Lab Gnesta in collaboration with Nynäs castle/Sörmland naturbruk and Sörmland museum, with the support of the Culture Council and Region Sörmland.
