The Nikolai Church not only supported OpenArt economically. They also let the art be a part of their landscape where several artworks were placed on their land and two inside of the church. During the summer they also offered an artist talk together with an artist from the exhibition where they talked about the correlation between art and existential questions.

The Church of Sweden strive to integrate the climate challenge in the core of their mission
"The climate crisis is the biggest challenge ever for mankind. It is a matter of course for the Church of Sweden to take responsibility for a sustainable development.
Our focus on climate change and sustainability has three aims: to make our organization climate neutral to 2030, to contribute to a change of values on sustainability and finally to improve the support to those who suffer most from the consequences of climate change.
We turn this into practice by investing in fossile free technology, green energy, reuse and recycling, increasing biodiversity and serving more plant-based food. We also strive to integrate the climate challenge in the core of our mission – in services, pilgrimages, education and conversations."
- Sara Bronner, Sustainability Developer at Svenska Kyrkan (the Church of Sweden)
