About Transit

Transit is a non-profit-making association for professional filmmakers, musicians, performance artists, visual artists and designers. Transit offers office space, workshops and coaching as a type of scholarship. In total there are 25-30 freelance artists in an open-plan office space who share contacts and knowledge over lunch on a daily basis. Transit is financed by Stockholm County Council’s Culture Department.

Transit shall contribute to improved conditions for visual artists, filmmakers, performance artists, musicians and designers to both practice and support themselves from their artistic work and their competence.

Transit shall, through its work, contribute to a supply of rich, free and independent artistic works and projects as well as innovative and sustainable products and services. In turn, these will contribute to cultural and economic development, both for the individual and society. Transit shall, in addition, be a creator of public opinion that works actively for improved conditions for artists and creators in their professional occupations.

Background

The non-profit-making association Transit Kulturinkubator runs Transit at Telefonplan. We collaborate with SITE, Starthus KMH at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Konstfack Alumni and Filmbasen, to be able to jointly support filmmakers, musicians, performance artists, designers and visual artists in the county of Stockholm. We work together to influence decision-makers to improve working conditions for professional artists.

Our network also includes business organisations, universities of the arts and other relevant organisations within “our” field. Through our collaborations both you and we can gain more information and knowledge in order to develop.

Transit was started in 2004 by Konstfack and was reformed in 2010 as an independent not-for-profit organisation in connection with funding from Stockholm County Council.
