In an intriguing and inspiring forty-five-minute presentation with slides, Thordis Niela Simonsen reveals how a gentle yearning for an unremarkable studio/gallery/residence morphed into an intimate, but elegant museum of art & culture.

A conversation with the audience and a book signing will follow the presentation.
