About CAS

NO
CAS består av et tidsskrift på nett med kunstkritikk, essays, artikler og intervjuer, samt et gjesteoppholdsprogram for kritikere, skribenter og forskere. Gjennom vårt arbeid har vi som mål å skape et profesjonelt, analytisk og kreativt fokus på Stavangerregionens kunstscene, samtidig som innholdet kobles til en større nasjonal og internasjonal diskurs – vi publiser derfor på både norsk og engelsk.

På CAS finner du en kunstkalender som gir en oversikt over nåværende og kommende utstillinger, arrangementer og søknadsfrister. I tillegg har vi en liste over regionale institusjoner og muligheter for gjesteopphold.

CAS ble stiftet i 2014 av Marte Danielsen Jølbo, Heather Jones, og Astrid Helen Windingstad. I dag drives nettstedet av daglig leder / redaktør Astrid Helen Windingstad, og den internasjonale redaktøren Heather Jones. CAS-styret består av to eksterne medlemmer og en representant fra redaksjonen: nåværende styremedlemmer inkluderer Helga Nyman (styreleder) og André Gali (styremedlem).

CAS følger de redaksjonelle retningslinjene til Redaktørplakaten og Vær Varsom-plakaten.

Vi er stolte av å jobbe med et bredt spekter av bidragsytere, og vi ønsker velkommen bidrag fra lokale, nasjonale og internasjonale skribenter. Alle forslag til artikler må være relevante for Stavanger-regionen og skal være skrevet på norsk eller engelsk.

CAS consists of an online journal featuring art criticism, essays, articles and interviews, as well as a physical residency program for critics, writers and researchers. Through our work, we aim to build a professional, analytical, and creative focus around the Stavanger region’s art scene, while at the same time connecting the content to a larger national and international discourse – we
therefore publish in both Norwegian and English.

CAS also maintains a list of regional institutions and residency opportunities, and the CAS online Community Arts Calendar provides an overview of current and upcoming exhibitions,
events and application deadlines.

CAS was founded in 2014 by Marte Daniels Jølbo, Heather Jones, and Astrid Helen Windingstad. Today, the site is run by Director / Editor Astrid Helen Windingstad, and International Editor Heather Jones. The CAS Board of Directors consists of two external members and a representative from the editorial board: current board members include Helga Nyman (Chairman of the Board) and André Gali (Board member).

We follows the editorial guidelines set forth by the Norwegian Redaktørplakaten and Vær Varsom-plakaten.

We is proud to work with a wide variety of contributors, and we welcome submissions from local, national, and international writers. All proposals for articles must be relevant to the Stavanger region, and should be written in either Norwegian or English.

About the region

Officially founded in 1125 with the completion of the cathedral (although inhabited innumerable years before then), Stavanger contains a rich cultural heritage visible in nearly every corner of the city. Original 18th and 19th century wooden houses form the core of the city, with newer architecture spreading outwards along with the growing industry and population. Characteristically, the traditional city center is small and dense, with winding, cobbled streets framed by the harbor. A recently implemented city development strategy has worked to upscale the waterfront area and expand the city center. This directive has, amongst other things, resulted in a new cultural axis, spanning from the contemporary art center Tou Scene in the newly developed brownfields on the eastside of the city center, to Bjergsted on the west side of the bay, home to the city’s new concert hall and music and performing arts education centers.

Located in the county of Rogaland on the southwest coast of Norway, Stavanger is surrounded by fjords, mountains and long, sandy beaches. The municipality of Stavanger covers an area of 68 square kilometers. Its population growth is one of the highest in the country, currently numbering 130,000 inhabitants and rising.

A city historically recognized for thriving shipping, fishing and canning industries, Stavanger is now largely supported by the North Sea’s oil resources. Currently the oil capital of Norway, with the headquarters of national operators such as Statoil and the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate located here, the city attracts a diverse international work force and benefits from a wealthy municipality that publicly invests in culture and infrastructure.

With the sudden influx of new industry and resources, the city is currently experiencing a cultural revival, with more artists and curators settling in the area and increased attention paid to the city’s already existent cultural institutions.
