Alternative facilities during building process

The University of Gothenburg and Akademiska Hus are planning a new building for the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts in the Näckrosen university campus area. The building will house both HDK-Valand and the Academy of Music and Drama. During the construction period, the Academy of Music and Drama needs to move to temporary premises.

The project consists of parts of the Artisten building where the Academy of Music and Drama is located today, which is planned to be rebuilt and become larger. The building along Johannebergsgatan and the D-building will be demolished and replaced with an elongated building. Other parts of the Artisten building will be preserved and renovated. In the parking lot Fågelsången behind Göteborgs Stadsteater, a new, cube-shaped building is planned. That building will be visible next to the Museum of Art and the Stadsteatern. The faculty's new building is planned to be completed in 2027. The move is expected to take place in stages 2025-2027. 
While the new building is being realized, it will not be possible to stay in the Artisten building. We plan to move temporarily to other premises in the summer and autumn of 2022. Naturally, we want you as a prospective or existing student with us, to receive a high-quality education during the construction period. Until the new building is ready and we can move in, the institutions' main residence will be at Eklandagatan 86 in Johanneberg.

Eklandagatan 86

Eklandagatan 86 is about a 15-minute walk from Götaplatsen. For most people who study at the Academy of Music and Drama, this will be the place for classes and to meet other students. The premises have been rebuilt to suit our educations. Here you will find rehearsal rooms, dance rooms, ensemble hall, sound studio, percussion room and a concert hall for electrically amplified music. Of course you can prepare your lunch on site, and there are several eateries nearby. If you like to exercise you will enjoy the proximity to two of Fysiken's gym facilities. 

Date of moving in: October 2022 – January 2023

Åvägen 24, 412 51 Göteborg

Parts of our educations in music and sound production, composition and the individual performance programme will take place here. Brewhouse is a creative centre in the Gårda district in Gothenburg, which since its inception in 2004 has been a place where creativity, artistry and entrepreneurship can meet and grow. Inside Brewhouse's yellow brick factory facades, in the Apotekarnes' water factory from 1936, the old bottling hall has been transformed into a event arena for concerts, fairs and conferences. There are also music studios, offices and incubator operations for start-ups in the creative industries, as well as a restaurant.

In this building, named "The other place", the educations in performing arts will carry out parts of their activities. The building is over 1000 square meters and consists mostly of a large blackbox adapted for theatre productions. It is adjacent to Angered Theatre and theatre school as well as the cultural centre Blå Stället. Andra stället has been used periodically by Angered Theatre both as a stage for performances and as a rehearsal room. It has also been used by the youth centre Kulturatom, a tailor, Clandestino Institut, Teater Chill, the dance school Funky Kids, Kulturskolan among other activities. Between 2016 and 2019, the Angereds Folkhögskola and the acting school Angereds Teaterskola were located to these premises. Nearby, there are walking paths and unique nature around the Lärjeån creek. There are also many eateries and cafes, Kultur på burk, the Lärjeån's gardens as well as a good vegetable market.
