The Cod Art Festival is a local art festival on Torskeholmen in Grimstad. We share magical art experiences to and in the city. The purpose is to create lively meetings between the audience and artists, and we will use the urban space and Torskeholmen for this on Saturday 14 August.
The festival program consists of 25 involved artists from Grimstad and the surrounding area, as well as some national elements. Here you can see poetry with excerpts from the book "Then" by Endre Ruset and Harry Man, video art with Anne-May Fossnes, Butoh dance with Sonja Salkowitch, visual art with Tove-Mari Odderdal and music with Rural Tapes.
