About Us

Wanås is a place in the world where art, nature, and history meet. Wanås Arts produces, presents, and communicates contemporary art to both the initiated and the novice. International contemporary art with a focus on site-specific installations has been shown here since 1987. Every year Nordic and international artists are invited to create art in the Park. Today the Park hosts over 50 permanent works, and over 5,000 children participate in our art-based educational activities every year. Marika Wachtmeister founded the organization in 1987 and was the director until 2010. The organization is currently co-directed by Elisabeth Millqvist and Mattias Givell. Wanås consists of a castle, an organic farm, an art gallery, a sculpture park, a museum shop and deli, and an organic café and is located in the municipality of Östra Göinge in northeastern Skåne.
