TCG Nordicas international exchange report
The second half of 2007 has bees a busy interesting time with many international contacts between TCG Nordica and Scandinavia.
During 2007 TCG Nordica has had several Artists in Residence.
Artists who have worked in the studios, held courses at TCG Nordica and lectures at the different Universities of Kunming. One of the ideas is to be able to utilize the knowledge and skills of these artists and provide an exchange of experiences among the artists and opportunities to network.
