About us

We are a couple in our mid-thirties who recently dropped out of the big city treadmill. We moved in 2011 from London to our farm in Hållnäs, with the ambition to create a space for interdisciplinary meetings and creative research close to nature. Here is a little bit of information about us as individuals:

Alex Peck has roots in the UK, a well-travelled chef and former science teacher and classroom assistant with  broad experience of working with young people within the autistic spectrum, as well as in outdoor education. Alex is interested in gardening, sustainable development and resilience.

Åsa Norling is a designer, artist and performance practitioner. She has worked as a set and costume designer on theatre, dance and opera productions, mostly in and around London.  In recent years, she has worked outside of the theatre space with public art projects #möbleratierp in Tierp and STADSRÖRA in Norrtälje town. Åsa has also diverse experience of educational work – as art teacher at Kulturskolan Tierp, as workshop leader at Clean Break Theatre Company, Barnens Snöskulpturfestival and Arabiska Teatern and as Visiting Practitioner at  the Performance Design and Practice undergraduate course at Central Saint Martins College in London. Between 20119-21, she works part-time as project coordinator for a rural developement projekt on the Hållnäs peninsular.

We have two small children, Vide and Alma.
