Alvesta Municipality Exhibition Hall will try to highlight and stimulate vision and perceive the subtile, perhaps endangered qualities. Highlighting the great in the small. This partly deliberately as a more needed antidote to the rampant computerization of our society and, not least as a contrast to the rapidly growing news.
On the second floor of Alvesta station building is the beautiful exhibition hall. Below are changing exhibitions throughout the year.
The station building was built in the early 1900s and is now owned by Jernhusen. The aim of the exhibitions is to keep the beautiful upper waiting hall and the old dining area open to the public. The main objective is that the activity will serve as a public face for Alvesta, reflecting its history, landscape, culture, inhabitants, organizations, schools and businesses mm. The exhibitions will be our friendly, universal, reflective and at the same time exciting and invigorating.
The target audience is all people, waiting, oncoming, leaving and of course those living in or passing Alvesta. Special tours for school classes and other groups organized. One idea is to try to integrate and visualize the large number of new inhabitants in Alvesta Municipality, and purely exhibition purposes but also in order to spread multiculturalism in a neutral place. Railway stations are after all parts of the world and have a similar atmosphere that many feel familiar. Furthermore Alvesta Railway Station is a well known concept, appointed by the architects to be one of Sweden's most beautiful lounges and beyond to be in an excellent position from the tourism point of view.
An important part of the exhibition business is to provide municipal courses a forum where you can continually show off their skills. Another part will be to serve as a center pool where the region's performing artists, craftspeople and cultural workers be given the opportunity to recurrent exhibitions or concerts. Alvesta Municipality also has a twinning with outlook towards the EU and accentuates other cultures to draw the lessons and to increase collaboration and understanding between people.
