Tenthaus Oslo participates in PARK. with the pilot project P1 – a mobile studio for artists in the school. P1 will serve as art studio, showroom and meeting place for artists and students. The mobile studio will be built in spring 2018 and is ready for use for school start in the autumn of 2018. During the school year 2018/2019, P1 will be a workplace for artists who in various ways will involve students from Levanger secondary school in their artistic work on the site. Located in the middle of the PARK project. and the new park commons in Kirkegt 11 in Levanger , P1 will further serve as an expanded studio that can host seminars, talks and art projects.

Tenthaus Oslo is a project room initiated by the Oslo-based artists Helen Eriksen, Ebba Moi and Stefan Schröder. At the core of their practice has been a long-term collaboration with the public school, both in the form of art projects and an expanded commitment to the role of the school in the local community. Tenthaus Oslo opened in 2010 as both an artist-run showroom and an arena for Alt for Hersleb (all for Hersleb) , where the class they worked with from Hersleb School had a unique opportunity to participate in workshops and processes around exhibitions at a time when their school was closed. Since then, Tenthaus has been an active, open and process-oriented project room for artistic practice in an expanded field. In 2016, the artists behind Tenthaus decided to share their experiences from a long-term work of artistic practice in school, and published the publication Tenthaus Toolkit – Artists in Schools.

Tenthaus Toolkit – Artists in Schools is a set of tools for schools as a location for the production of art. Through a number of texts and examples, the artists behind Tenthaus define some tools which may be useful when a school wants to work with an artist or vice versa. Based on their own practice, they wish to use this publication to share some tools with artists, schools, politicians and other decision-makers who are involved in, or interested in these questions. The aim is to find good strategies for how a visual artist may participate in the Norwegian public school system.
