How to reach a more diverse audience?
— A seminar on how to make your institution relevant to minority groups.
In Oslo, 1 out of 3 have an ethnic minority background, but this is far from being reflected within arts and culture. How can Norwegian museums, galleries, and theatres communicate better with minority groups?
The meeting will take place at the Oslo House of Literature. The lecture and conversation with Nightingale will be in English and the rest of the programme in Norwegian. Register here or watch live streaming at Morgenbladet Portalen.
