Join the conference
Welcome to the Nordic conference on culture and inclusion, 2-3 December 2019. Read more about the program and practical information.
Day 1: Local learning for global use
2 December, 10.00–17.00
Vega Scene, Hausmanns gate 28, Oslo
How can we create long-term, sustainable relationships between people in our communities? Seven different cultural networks have explored methods to reach out to new groups, through the project «An Inclusive Cultural Sector in the Nordics». Museums, libraries, culture schools, artists and arts organisations will take us through what they have learnt, as well as the challenges they have met.
Nordic Forum for Interculture and the artist network Critical Friends have been facilitators and advisors to the other networks throughout the project. They will moderate a range of sessions and discussions throughout the day.
Day 2: New leadership methods
3 December, 09.00–16.00
Det Norske Teatret, Kristian IVs gate 8, Oslo
The Norwegian Minister of Culture and Equality, Trine Skei Grande, will open the second day of the conference.
The Nordic Council of Ministers and the Norwegian Ministry and Culture will receive the recommendations from the project.
We need to talk about leadership, at a local, national and Nordic level. Speakers and panels will take a closer look at the allocation of power in the cultural sector. Who gets to define artistic quality?
The second day will be about the links between politics, identity and culture, and we will discuss how racism and discrimination affect the cultural sector. How can people in positions of power become more aware of their blind spots?
More programme details soon to be released.
