Therese is passionate about creating meaningful and successful projects. Her passion landed her at a Project Management education between 2015 – 2017. An education which focused on international culture/art. She accomplished several projects during this period. Working with international organizations, such as Culture Action Europe and Peace Works.
After Therese Sahlin graduated as a project manager she got offered to become the coordinator for Kulturskolan Östra Göteborg, an music & art school with focus on affordable “after school” lessons. She was coordinating around 30 teachers with 600 students in over seven different disciplines at more then ten locations in east Gothenburg, one of the most challenged areas of the city.
In 2018, Therese, became the artist in residence at Bijlmer Parktheater, Amsterdam, the Netherlands. She was one out of three leading project managers for the international cultural festival “In The Picture” and brought in groups from Kenya, England and Sweden to perform together with local groups in several disciplines such as dance, theater, poetry and music. Next to the festival, Therese also led a new dance group formed out of local mixed with foreigner dancers, with completely different dance style backgrounds.
The first phase where we find out about the project’s objectives and what we are trying to achieve.
The second phase where we identify the project’s goals, tasks, and priorities. This is also the phase where we do the work!
The third phase where we keep track of the project and asses the ups/down. We close out the project by ensuring that provision has been made for the future
As an artist in residence, Therese Sahlin was not only active in the planning phase our festival (In The Picture 2019) but also performing with her own solo act at the spectacular opening evening and being the host of our international performance night. During her whole residence at Bijlmer Parktheater she was also the leader of our international Talentlab group of six dancers with different backgrounds… Therese Sahlin is very appreciated both by our staff as well as the festival visitors and artists. She has been easy to work with in many aspects, having a positive attitude, keeping time and being curious to learn from our history in a humble way. Bijlmer Parktheater is very happy to see Therese Sahlin’s growth during her artist residency and we can warmly recommend other events and partners to work with her in the future.
