Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder (LKV) is housed in a former school building from 1906, near the centre of Trondheim. It consists of 37 studios for professional artists as well as workshops for wood and metal, darkroom and printing facilities. In a nearby building there are two apartments for visiting artists.
The building is owned by the municipality of Trondheim and is leased to the artists on a non-profit basis. By means of a fairly modest investment, the owner has greatly improved the working conditions for the city’s artists. The facilities, the moderate rent and the professional fellowship also encourage art students to remain in the area after having finished their studies.
LKV is a private foundation. The foundation’s board per 21.11.17 is:
Per Kristian Nygård (chairman)
Vigdis Haugtrø (vice-chairman)
