Stimulating reflection, self-awareness, and cultural literacy.
Since 2013, the Art Initiative has raised the level of knowledge density at SSE by adding aesthetic and experiential encounters to the academic expertise already present. Art talks, art tours, and an ever-expanding collection of art objects provide students with new ways of seeing and of knowing as they develop a greater self-awareness and broader cultural literacy.
The SSE Art Initiative also hosts a number of student and community-focused activities, drawing audiences from the SSE student body, faculty, and staff, and from the greater Stockholm community.
Working closely with the Art Initiative is the Art Division, a branch of the Student Association that arranges five Art Talks per semester. These talks launch important conversations on art, society, and their many predictable and unpredictable points of contact.
