For the autumn of 2021 and the spring of 2022, the curatorial team Heida Karine Johannesdotter and Afryea Collective want to invite to a number of Mørkerom with the overarching theme "Diversity in Trøndelag's art and cultural life."
The first Mørkerom is a Kanko Meeting; Kanko means circle in the Ghanaian language Twi. "Kanko meeting" is a concept developed by Afryea Collective: The meetings are an interactive panel discussion where we discuss important and current topics in a safe environment, with relevant elements of art and music. The purpose of the meetings is to provide space for voices and topics that are not otherwise prominent in the public debate and to create a safe environment where there is a low threshold for sharing experiences and exchanging knowledge. The inspiration behind the name comes from the tradition of gathering around the fire, in a circle, and sharing experiences and stories under Harmattan in Northern Ghana.
Through the panel discussion, we want to initiate a conversation around the issue: "What diversity do we have in the cultural life in Trondheim, where do we find it and how do we create space for it?"
Program for the evening:
At 19:00 - Musical by Miriam Kibakaya
At 19:30 - Panel discussion "What diversity do we have in the cultural life in Trondheim, where do we find it and how do we create space for it?" with Azra Halilovic, Carl Martin Faurby, Alexander Graham Roberts and TBA.
