TCG Nordica is situated in a closed down factory area, the Chuang Ku/Loft. Around 30 Chinese artists now have their studios at the Loft, and this contributes to a pulsating and creative atmosphere throughout the block.
A great variety of people pass through the venue, which is in accordance with the vision of the founders. Swedish and Chinese culture workers, Anna Mellergård and Wu Yuerong, realized they shared a common dream based on their interests for art and culture, which was to create a place that promotes greater knowledge of their respective cultures.
