Thursday 19th March 2015
I have just returned from inspiring, exciting, creative, intense and hard working days in Trysil as a member of the National Art Jury for “Drømmestipendet” – The Dream Grant.
I feel it is a great honour to be a member of this jury, and can safely say that we have a lot of talented young people in this country. I feel lucky to get the opportunity to be a part of giving out one million Norwegian kroner to talented young people.
The leader of the jury this year was the retired dancer Ketil Gudim, and the winners of “Drømmstipendet” will be announced in June.
On Friday 20th march you can hear me talk about the work as a member of the jury on NRK radio at 07.50.
3 weeks ago I had a film team visiting my art studio, the were there filming for 8 hours. This was a commission on behalf of “Drømmestipendet”, and the film was made public now on Tuesday
