The Others

Newspaper articles and community projects

Collecting and sharing stories from the Other side.

I am interested in asking questions about what it is like to live in Norway as Other, in many cases, a non-native Norwegian, or being born in Norway yet asked to continually justify your identity. To gather stories of people´s experiences living in Norway as Other.

To offer a voice and a platform to those who don´t usually have one. Or who are ignored. Invisible. To record migration stories. Integration stories. To explore ideas about and comment on nationalism. Assimilation. Identity and belonging. And the effects this has on Norway’s present and future.

As we know there are so many of us, and also how scary it can be to speak up, so we're collating emails of those interested so we can step forward in a safe space.

It´s more important than ever for our stories to be heard.
