Our services

Trøndelag Centre for Contemporary Art (TSSK) has been for many years the regional contact institution for KORO - Public Art Norway, the Norwegian government’s professional body for art in public spaces, Trondheim kommune and Trøndelag fylkeskommune.


TSSK provides practical advice and information to both the public, and the private sector, and aims to contribute with artistic professionalism in the management of public space and urban development.

Our work with art in public space is an important part of our core activities, and we offer a unique competence within the field. We will work towards securing artistic quality in public art projects within our region, and towards an active and critically reflecting, public conversation about art and our shared public spaces.

Professional art expertise

Using professional art expertise is a profitable investment to achieve good results.

An art consultant or art director has the task of executing a 'plan for placing art'. This is the key document during the work of carrying out an art project. The plan is also a prerequisite for funding from KORO, as the state's professional body for art in public spaces that manages decorations in state buildings, and has support schemes for municipal and county municipal projects in buildings and outdoor spaces.

The art consultant leads the art committee, which often consists of the client, architect and user representative (s) and ensures that democratic and artistic considerations are well taken care of. has a database of qualified professional consultants, artists and curators in Norway divided into regions. You may also contact us directly for recommendations.


KORO support art production in different public spaces.
