Over twenty artists from seven different countries (South Africa, Colombia, Kenya, Mexico, Rwanda, Zambia and Sweden) present pieces in the spaces of the Swedish Institute in Paris during April 10-14 2019. Hosts of the “Créateurs en mouvement” festival, they came together to work on Sweden@, a project initiated by the Institute in 2013 whose aim is to gather various industry players around the fundamental role of creatives in the development of our societies.
