Who We Are

Creative Connections Ciderhuset (CCC) was founded in 2018 by Tuba Ardic and Gard Eitungjerde Høyvik. The founders are national trainers for Erasmus+ program in Norway and they have long experiences within international projects. They have been taking an active part in the promotion and recognition of non-formal education within the local and regional community in Norway and Europe.

Gard and Tuba are also working in Ciderhuset (www.ciderhuset.no) with Gard`s family and doing organic fruit farming, producing fruit juices and many type of ciders. They are using their organic farm as an arena for children and youth to experience eco-friendly life style during the activities, workshops, training they arrange.

CCC is a non- profit organization established in Balestrand, which has long art history and is a member of Euro-Art (https://www.euroart.eu/ ). CCC`s main goal is to activate children and youth living in Balestrand and in the region. Art and agriculture is the two main methods during the workshops, international training courses, and free-time activities for promoting awareness, understanding, and appreciation of other cultures, traditions, nature and natural resources. We also create an arena for them to develop their ideas and give them courage and knowledge to implement these ideas.
