    Reconstruction from November 1 to June 1!

    Fårö Development has now begun its task of renovating and reconstructing the old Fårö school into a Bergman Center and Fårö Museum. In June, the European Union’s Rural Development Fund decided to approve the project ”Bergman Center on Fårö – a cultural meeting point”. This means that with additional funding from Region Gotland the Fårö Bergman Center Foundation has received a total of SEK 15,6 million to rebuild the former school on Fårö and turning it into a fully functioning and useful Bergman Center and Fårö Museum.
