How does the Nordic countries work with culture to create inclusive local communities? We welcome you to a day packed with Nordic experiences on methods for creating inclusive culture practices and communities.

The Norwegian Ministry of Culture has initiated a three year project “An inclusive culture sector in the Nordics” (2017-2019) in connection with the Norwegian Chairmanship in the Nordic Council of Ministers. The project works with identifying challenges and solutions for inclusiveness both in the professional and volunteer cultural sector. One of the focus areas is culture in local communities: how do we work with involvement and why is culture such a powerful tool in creating inclusion and empower the individual?

To answer these question we have invited to Folk och Kultur projects and examples from Iceland, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway. They will share their experience and knowledge with inclusive methods and practices.

At the seminar you will meet:

The Groruddalen Integrated Urban Regeneration Project.
The project is gathering information about our inhabitant’s cultural resources, practices and preferences and initiating customized events to increase the diversity of participants and heighten cohesion and local identity.
