Stories told and re-told

MJF would like to thank all who came to our first seminar, in Kabelvåg and Kvalnes 1st and 2nd of september 2019

Day 1 of the seminar included 45 min presentations by our four main speakers Hilde Østby, Marianne Ulrichsen, Matti Hyvärinen and Fadlabi with a concluding round table conversation summarising some of the issues that had been raised on the many-faceted subject of narratives and storytelling. The evening then progressed to Speech Karaoke, a group project presented here by artist Oliver Kochta-Kalleinen in collaboration with DJ Fadlabi for the occasion, improvising a set to the speeches that were selected and performed by the audience.

MJF would like to thank Fritt Ord, Norsk Kulturråd and Vestvågøy kommune for making this seminar possible, and KONE and Saastamoinen foundations for their continued support of our programme.
