Midtnordisk Kunstfestival, or the Middle Nordic Art Festival as it would translate to, takes place in idyllic Inderøy. Located an hour’s drive from Trondheim, the area is known for its artistic treasures as well as a hotspot for locally produced cheeses. With this backdrop there is no wonder people are keen to learn and further develop exciting creative skills. “Being at the festival is like living in a bubble, where people can spend all day doing what

they dream of doing on a regular basis,” coordinator Inger Marie Lillesand says.

The festival, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this summer, offers talks by renowned artists, dance performances, and perhaps most importantly courses for people to learn and further develop various skills like painting, writing or photography. “This year the theme is ‘Space,’ whereupon people are free to interpret the word in their own way, and on the last day we will award the best result,” Lillesand says. An addition to this year's festival is that children are welcome to join in. “We look forward to seeing children embrace art too, and for them to challenge themselves,” Lillesand says, and emphasises that they offer courses for people at all levels, from beginners to semi-professionals.

Smoked salmon, gravlax and classic seafood sauces made from fresh Scandinavian produce. ”W We guarantee salmon of the th highest quality. It takes only a few hours from the moment the salmon is taken out of the sea until it is fully trimmed and filleted. The salmon is shipped fresh from Norway to Falkenberg, on the western coast of Sweden.” ”In our smokehouse, all salmon is smoked with alder wood and juniper berries. The alder trees are locally grown at a sustainable forestry. W We e chip the wood ourselves fresh from the log, every week. The slightly damp wood gives a dense, white smoke that is perfect for smoking salmon. In the smoking process we also add juniper berries, all this to extract as much as possible of the wonderful aromas and flavours naturally contained in the wood.”
