SKT's mission has always been to break boundaries, promote inclusiveness and accessibility. Starting as a gallery, SKT aimed to create scattered, multi-location exhibitions. In the last year, our team has expanded and we have organized a variety of amazing projects: art and music exhibitions, events, blog and podcast series, an online shop and tailored consulting.

We also nurtured partnerships with several companies and organisations to extend the gallery's ventures. SKT partnered with Arbor Standard, an Extended Reality Company and created 2 virtual exhibitions together. Furthermore, by partnering with Whereform and TreeSisters, we created a link between art and sustainability, planting trees for each artist joining the show.

We are looking for volunteers and enthusiast to join our team with a prospective of switching over to a part-time position in the winter season.
