Fernweh is a travelling-curator project that aims to investigate notions of travel and hospitality within community and socially engaged art. Its objectives are to consider the notions of art in community (rural-urban) through a hosting, visiting and travelling programme in collaboration with a series of communities and institutions across Scotland. Each place will host the visitors and discuss a topic.
