Norrbotten equality prize

is a scholarship that will be awarded over five years
The prize consists among other things of a sculpture specially designed on the theme.
Norrbotten County Council's Culture and Education Division announced a competition for the design of the sculpture and the jury fell for my suggestion "Taking off together"

Motivation from the jury:
Kerstin Hedström's proposal "Taking off together" has a positive and
including message. The sculpture has a pleasurable design in which
the emphasis on both the inside and outside enhances the mission theme of
equality and diversity. The untraditional hanging position
creates mobility and the re-used material brings variety to the
the five prizes to be awarded. "Taking off together" is a strong
artistic representation of the theme and a fine example of Kerstin
Hedströms artistic practice, where her interest in resource use
and recycling is represented in an obvious way.

The scholorship will be awarded on September 9 at the House of Science in Luleå
