Residency Programme since: 2015
Description of Organisation:

The Gamleby Courthouse Foundation was formed in 1960 after the court held its last meeting in December 1959, and moved to V_Ñ_stervik, a larger nearby town.

The Foundations mission is to manage and maintain the courthouse building and support cultural activities in the building, as well as preserve the old courtroom as a museum.

During 50 years there has been a lawyers office, doctors surgery, municipal music school, educational associations and student housing in the building. The Courthouse along with the garden is a Cultural Heritage building, for more visit:

Cultural Society Ting For Everyone was formed in 2015 and officially opened as a cultural centre with the ambition that the house should be buzzing with cultural activities. Cultural Society is currently renting the old residence apartment and kitchen garden. For more information visit:
