ARNA - where art meets nature

ARNA is a nonprofit organzation in Sweden. We promote a sustainable development in the The Avian Kingdom with the vision that it one day will be the world's first UNESCO Biosphere Reserve to include the cultural dimension of sustainability.

In the center of our work we place our artist in residence, a hub for artists from around the world to explore and express human's relationships towards nature and to unfold culture's role in a sustainable development.
