Ravinen is a cultural project run by a foundation, and is a separate complement to the Norrviken gardens, located outside of Båstad. Behind the initiative as well as the foundation for Ravinen are Ulla and Gustav Kraitz. For almost six decades they have worked and lived side by side on the Bjärehalvön in Skåne. Together they have exhibited their art globally in museums, open air sculpture galleries and public spaces.
