holidays on the Norwegian calendar, with snow, cabin trips and skis all on the menu. While temperatures stay low, the sun gets progressively higher, and this is the most telling factor. One of the incredible experiences of living at this latitude, for those of us from southern(ish) climes, is how rapidly the length of the days changes over the year: an incredible six minutes and twenty seconds difference each day. Suddenly those February blues start to lift and we can actually see the horizon on our way to work. In this issue of The List we bring you a whole range of thoughts and activities to take advantage of these broadening horizons; from mystery tours across the fjord, to cheese detours through Inderøy (check out Katarzyna’s article on page 30, and Jørund’s travels on page 20). We also welcome Trondheim’s Deputy Mayor, Hilde Opoku, who provides food for thought on the subject of sustainability. This time of year always has a sense of refresh, renew and restart. Wardrobes are kitted out with new outfits, while new colours emerge like the first hestehov (dandelions) poking through the snow. But ‘new’ does not necessarily mean freshly manufactured, as Marianne Selberg’s wonderful article on refreshing your style, and Astri Barbala’s collaboration with Fretex, demonstrates. Recycled fashion is not just possible, but desirable. Whether you decide to start your spring with a not-so-traditional egg hunt (page 35) or a cosy chill in front of Kosmorama’s glittering array of international films (page 18), you can trust The List to point you in the right direction. Happy hunting readers.

Four weeks ago when January turned into February, Twitter informed me that it was the beginning of the Gaelic spring, ‘Earrach’. I looked out the window and the last thing I could see, through the sideways sleet and quivering bare branches, was a sign of anything closely resembling spring. Now March has arrived and … well, not a lot of change in the weather. Despite all thermometers telling me otherwise, I feel a change comin’ on.

orje Stenkjær is an all-around adventure enthusiast. He’s an accomplished climber, skier, biker, diver, and adrenaline junkie. But he also knows the value of safety and trust. That’s why he serves on the local ‘Munkstigen Via Ferrata’ rescue team. Torje first started climbing about six years ago, and for the last three years he has become very serious about it, driven by a burning desire to be outside climbing. He’s always loved being in nature and believes climbing gives him a unique chance to reach new places. “When I’m climbing, I feel like everything else is sitting silent and I’m just focused on the climbing and the nature.” He started climbing in order to be a better asset to his local rescue team, which is comprised of all volunteers who have a desire to keep locals and tourists alike safe in the mountains. Located just across the fjord from Trondheim, Via Ferrata is a very popular cable-climbing route in Munken. The peak gives a view in all directions form a height of 518 metres above sea level. It is not often that people experience trouble along the way, but if they do, the long climb and steepness of the mountain sometimes requires climbing skills. Volunteers like Torje provide this assistance. “I just had a need to volunteer and I enjoy 10

helping people.” Being alone with nature is perhaps one of the most fulfilling and inspiring things a person can do. It fills your soul, clears your head, and allows you to peacefully connect to everything around you. For Torje, these moments are “simply amazing”. Torje’s passion drives him to travel, explore, and search for new adventures. Recently, he visited the United States on a trip to Utah and Yosemite, California; both considered to be climbers’ paradise, with high peaks and unlimited possibilities. Together with a few friends, they planned and organised the trip and pushed each other to achieve their dreams. “It’s all I can think about. When the weekend comes all I want to do is climb. I just set a goal and go for it. If I need to train two or three times a week, or even for half a year, I just go for it.” In Yosemite, he completed the Lost Arrow Spire Direct route, a 426-metre peak that is rated among the most classic climbs in California. The climb took a total of four days; due in part to one colleague getting sick during the initial ascent. His next big goal is to head to the Swiss Alps for three to four weeks for some alpine climbing. After that, he dreams of going to Patagonia in southern Chile and Argentina to climb Mount Fitz Roy, a mountain of legend amongst anyone in the climbing community. “I want other people to feel the same joy that I have when I’m climbing. It’s a rush.” Although his climbing career didn’t start until relatively recently, Torje hopes that everyone is bold enough and brave enough to chase their true passions in life. Given the chance to start back again earlier, he would have chosen to be a rescue medic. But, as with many of us, he has no regrets about where life has led him. The skills he has gained have allowed him to become a bigger asset to the local Via Ferrata rescue group because it has improved his confidence, leadership, decision making skills, and trust in others. “Climbing makes you really good with trusting people and building relationships. You need to learn 100% trust because the other person is holding the rope. You also need to learn to take decisions quickly.” For new climbers, Torje suggests checking out TTF, the Trondheim Touristforenigen Fjellsportgruppa, which provides trips and courses for everyone from beginner to expert. It only costs 100 NOK to join and the trips are free (aside from food and petrol). The goal of the organisation is to get people outside enjoying nature and learning. His best recommendations for climbs in Norway are Stetind in Tysfjord and anything in Lofoten or Romsdal. So, join a club, get out there and start exploring. “There is no substitute for nature. Just get out there.” a

arianne Danielsen is the leader of Engasjert Byrå, a company focused on creating positive change by focusing on people, visual communication and values. She uses her love of people, combined with a strong natural curiosity to create unique solutions for people and organizations around the world. “I’m just a naturally very curious person and I’m not afraid. You can’t ever go wrong with friendliness…” Marianne’s passion for people started early. In kindergarten, she was always the person arranging activities and getting kids together to play. That may sound common to most of us, but she can even remember the names and faces of everyone from her kindergarten class. She is the definition of a social extrovert. Later in life, she recalls playing sports and being involved in activities: not for the competition, but for the social aspect. This continued on into university where she studied business and into her first job, where she worked for Jordan, a famous toothbrush company. “I’ve never really been GOOD at anything, as far as sports go, but I’ve always loved the social aspect. To me, it’s about relationships.” At Jordan, Marianne found a brilliant work 11

culture with good values, strong teamwork and a fun work environment. This drove her to develop a deep fascination with human resources, branding, and people skills. However, she experienced culture shock when she left Jordan for another company whose values were not quite the same. Without the focus on the people at the company, she felt disconnected and lost. Unable to identify with the values, she had to leave. “You had the values and strategy on paper but they didn’t live by it. There was a lack of leadership and value thinking.” In 2009, during the financial crisis, Marianne was asked to layoff several employees, which didn’t sit well with her. So, instead, she joined forces and and three of them started a company together based on providing guidance and coaching on people and values. That company is Engasjert Byrå and today employs 15 people. The company is designed around the focus of people as brand builders. They develop leaders and strategy through empowering people to be the primary drivers of impact. “People give me energy. It’s just all about being meaningful and connected to other people. People are everything.” Marianne and her team use their curiosity about people to dig deep into important questions, allowing them to find unique solutions. By living their values and being dedicated to the belief that people are the most important asset, they become very result oriented and inspire change to take place simultaneously through vision, ideas and inspiration. Currently, Engasjert Byrå handles a wide variety of clients and projects locally here in Trondheim and across Norway. One of these projects is their young leaders programme, which begins its sixth round in just three years in March. The goal of the programme is to give aspiring young leaders the tools and values necessary to bring about positive change. “We believe in a good strategy, values as a tool and want to make people more effective.” Marianne believes that good culture makes all the difference in whether organisations ultimately succeed or fail. The focus has to be in the right place. If you can create a culture where people are intrinsically motivated to come to work, have fun and accomplish their tasks, then the organisation will always succeed. Being conscious is the key. Marianne has had quite an incredible journey, but she also enjoyed lots of mentorship and advice along the way. She believes that anyone else who wants to turn their hobby into a profession should seek out as much information as possible and talk to others who have already done it. As always, people are the key. “I feel very privileged to have turned my hobby into a profession. I love my company, the experience, and, of course, the PEOPLE!” a THE FIFTEENTH ISSUE

THE FIFTEENTH ISSUE

S

tåle is an artist, but more specifically, he is a creator who combines passion, creativity and humour to deliver unique perspectives. Some people know the very moment they find their passion; for Ståle, it has always been there. From the time he was small, he was always drawing on walls, schoolbooks, and anything else he could find. So, it was only natural for him to pursue a career as an illustrator. When he was six, he thought he’d like to be an archaeologist… but soon realised his fascination with dinosaurs was mostly in drawing them. However, he says that just like most people he wasn’t naturally good at drawing. Instead, he had to practice and learn over time. “I like to find new challenges and pursue things that I have never done before.” Since 2003, Ståle has worked as an illustrator, designer and art director. Recently, he began to pursue his personal ambitions full-time and left his job to work on his own projects. 12

Ståle doesn’t stick to just one type of art; he tries everything. Recently he premiered a film in Tromsø; he draws constantly, paints often and even dabbles with sculpture. In addition, he likes to write books and owns his own publishing house. You could say he’s a one-man-show. He simply enjoys the process of conceptualizing and creating new things. “It’s hard to pin down exactly what I do because if it’s fun and worth doing, I do it.” A couple weeks ago, he painted with his kids for fun but since the art turned out so unique, he made prints and hung them in his gallery. It’s this sort of fun approach to life that allows him to bring fresh, unique creativity to all of the work that he does. Ståle pulls inspiration from all around him. He takes it in, processes it, and suddenly a light bulb comes on inside his head. When he’s creating things, time and space seem to disappear. “I just take it all in. It could be an old lady crossing the street who is just inspiring in the way she walks or other people doing things, I just like doers and seeing people when they are good at something, that inspires me.” Ståle also loves that his artwork and designs bring joy to other people. Knowing that something he created gives others pleasure and inspiration is very motivating for him. He says he’s not into good; he’s into great. The artwork doesn’t need to be pretty or perfectly correct, because it’s more conceptual. He thrives on quirkiness and weirdness in his pieces–allowing him to have a style and design unlike anyone else. “I get to do what I love, which is everyone’s goal… people want to buy the stuff I make because it comes from the heart.” In March, he will start a new campaign for Save the Children. He’s also taking on ever more customers now that he has started his own business. He says that one of the things that limits most people in following their dreams is their failure to work extra hard and never give up. Persistence is the key to success. Often times as an artist, you will need to face 100 no’s before you receive one yes, but over time, there will be more people saying yes and less saying no. Just need to keep working hard and believing in yourself. “If I don’t create or draw or make things, I’ll shrink up and die.” Perhaps the truest test of commitment is to ask yourself “can I live without this?” For Ståle, the answer is no. He is compulsively driven to create and inspire. Last week, he opened two solo exhibitions in Tromsø and Sunndalsøra. He will also be the only Norwegian exhibitor in Scandinavia’s largest street exhibition in March. He’s got a lot of projects coming up and feels amazingly lucky to be doing what he loves. One of his favourite quotes comes from Jay-Z: “I’m not a business man; I’m a business, man.” a

FOR DEVELOPMENT A

ll my life I have been involved in some kind of cross-cultural exchange. It started with my grandfather, a survivor of the Nazi working camps. He insisted that I have German pen pals in order to get to know one another, and learn from each other’s challenges as a prerequisite for a peaceful and humanistic world. It was he who was marked a lifetime of inhumane actions, who preached this while he bought the stamps for my letters. A generation later and I am coordinating a cross-cultural experience with my own daughters, handling culture, education and environment between Eco-Schools in Trondheim and Ghana. As a result, it is no secret that we often travel long distances. This is both to keep up with an international family (my daughters are half-Ghanaian) and to work on the environmental certification programmes that accompany the Eco-School involvement; one of them being on sustainable tourism. 2017 has been designated by the UN as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism development. This UN resolution, one that could have been written by my grandfather, reads; “the importance of international tourism, and particularly of the designation of an international year of sustainable tourism for development, in fostering better understanding among peoples everywhere, in leading to a greater awareness of the rich heritage of various civilizations and in bringing about a better appreciation of the inherent values of different cultures, thereby contributing to the strengthening of peace in the world.” This decision follows a recognition by global leaders at the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20). The UN’s website explains that “well-designed and well-managed tourism” can contribute to economic, social and environmental development; the three dimensions of sustainable development. The report goes on to mention job creation and trade as impact factors. What happened to the environment in the equation? Has sustainable tourism become a quest to sustain the tourist industry? Today, there is no broad consensus that tourism development should be sustainable. The international year of sustainable tourism requests that we debate the issue of what sustainable tourism actually should be. Tourism now equates to about 10% of the global GDP, and it is strongly linked to mobility. A relevant consideration is tourism’s reliance on fossil fuels and its effect on climate change. According to studies: 72% of CO2 emissions linked to tourism comes from transportation; 24% from accommodations; and 4% from local activities. Aviation accounts for a startling 55% of the transportation CO2 emissions from tourism. If considering that emissions from long distance travel occurs at high altitude, where their

effect on the climate is amplified – aviation alone accounts for 75% of tourism’s climate impact. Climate and environmental impacts from classical tourism can be reduced through certification programs. The certification label we work for in Ghana, Green Key, is an example that requires comprehensive documentation from accommodation providers, and offers a CO2 quota programme through the Global Forest Fund. It also requires social involvement and encourages focusing on heritage. It does not, however, guarantee local development, peace, or the recovery of ecosystems. Ecotourism is a concept that demands more from the individual traveller in this regard. Its definition reads: “responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people, and involves interpretation and education.” In this approach, education is meant to be inclusive of both staff and guests. According to Megan E. Wood, the founder of the International Ecotourism Society, only about 5% of this tourist economy can be documented as ecotourism. At the same time, tourism is growing rapidly in the developing world. Today’s dominant trend is that of foreign investors buying up local land, where they build a monoculture industry based on global products, and leave little more than unmanaged waste for the local community. My main point being that travelling to a developing country is, in itself, not enough to enhance sustainable tourism for development. On the other hand, the potential for UN’s International Year of Sustainable Tourism is tremendous. To overcome the risk of sustainable tourism becoming an oxymoron, it requires that consumers, policy-makers, and industry, take responsibility for achieving more balanced and equitable economies through tourism by using new methodologies. Some methods that have proven effective include: adequate investments in local infrastructures (e.g. emission-free transportation); renewable energy; waste management and sanitation; and providing ethical working standards and payment for local inhabitants. All the while protecting local eco-systems. In the end, it is up to you and I to take advantage of the benefits of connecting with people, while at the same time reducing our own impact. Ironically, for many of us this implies we must reduce our own tourist activity while simultaneously encourage institutions to enhance their exchange programmes. Take ISFiT, the world’s largest international student festival, for example. ISFiT welcomes students from around the world to Trondheim, taking their participants on a life changing journey and instilling upon them humanistic values. This opens new doors to other cultures and their challenges, in ways that eventually benefit us all. a 15

from just going to the cinema,” began Silje Engeness of Kosmorama. “It’s about the feeling and the experience for the people that come to Kosmorama.” This year’s Kosmorama is shaping up to be quite the experience; with the number film showings inching towards triple digits, many of them coming with sacks full of awards and nominations. The List decided to ask two of the organisers of Kosmorama, Ola Lund Renolen and Silje Engeness, about the first step of putting on a film festival: how they choose what films to screen. “Like all other festivals we are, in a way, very dependent on what is happening at the major festivals in Cannes and Berlin. To go to the major festivals, to see what is presented there is very important for what we do, but it’s not enough,” says Ola Lund Renolen. “So, at the start, you pick a film because you think it is very good. And when you have 20, 30, 40 films you start to look and see that we have nothing from Russia, or nothing from Asia and start to add more based on what you think is missing. ” “And that works in various ways. All the time we are searching for specific things, we are curious to see as many films as possible, and we look for what is going on out there in the international film world, and of course agents and producers approach us and say ‘hey, we want you to see this film’,” continues Ola. To really create an experience that is more than just going to the cinema, it means that choosing the films is far from the only task for the Kosmorama crew. The next step is to organise them into their respective programmes. Each programme is built around a loosely defined genre, which is decided by looking at certain aspects of a film: from the obvious elements of a horror film or a documentary, to more subtle aspects such as the message the film carries or certain stylistic choices. “To make a festival programme, it’s kind of like composing a symphony. Is it too dark, too light, too serious, too European…you need to have balance,” Ola said. “We try to find films for our programme that make you cry, make you angry, make you smile. We want the audience to be challenged in a way. To use the whole spectrum of human emotion with all the different films we show,” responded Silje. “You see people coming out of the theatre, and their reaction to the film they saw, and you are a little bit proud of creating a program that people had strong reactions to–whether they were positive or negative,” continued Ola. When asked about one film that Ola and Silje were excited about for this year’s edition of Kosmorama, they answered with a chuckle. Unable to narrow it down to just one, they both gave The List top three choices of films being shown this year that they believe are not to be missed. a

he norm for desirable tourism is slowly changing; more and more people want to experience authentic food, drink, culture and nature activities in a way that leaves the least footprint on their surroundings, while getting the most out of their time. Let’s have a look at sustainable tourism around Trondheim. The term sustainable tourism has been growing steadily in Norway for the last 15 years, with an increase in experience based value creation of 300%, and an increase in accommodation of 75%. Norway, with its beautiful nature, culture and potential experiences, hosts both native and international tourists who want more sustainable, unique experiences, like local food, contact with local inhabitants, overnight stay at farms, pilgrim wandering, bicycling vacations and berry picking. Trøndelag tourism stands for a substantial part of this value creation increase, and experiences are definitely the most growing. Røros, Stjørdal and Inderøy are among the well established spots for sustainable tourism in Trøndelag, and The List has taken a closer look at Inderøy, a peninsula in the Trondheimsfjord, and more specifically, The Golden Road, which runs over it. The Golden Road or Den Gyldne Omvei, as it’s called in Norwegian, is actually a detour from the E6 main road, what is reflected in direct translation: The Golden Detour. You will easily find around 20 local producers there, who work closely together to offer unique 21

experiences in local food, culture and activities. The Golden Road lies approximately 1.5 hours from Trondheim, and you can get there by for example taking a train to Røra, and cycle around on The Golden Road. That is a great way to travel green and immerse yourself in The Golden Road experience. Bring or rent a bike and bicycle around from farm to farm, meet the locals, eat and drink from local producers, and indulge in handmade things. The List has been so fortunate as to get a glimpse into Gangstad Gårdsysteri, one of the many splendid stops to make during your time on The Golden Road. Gangstad Gårdsysteri is owned and run by Astrid Aasen and Perry Frøysadal; and this is what Astrid humbly, yet confidently told of their success in cheese production, and more, since 1998. What was the underlying motivation when Gangstad Gårdsysteri was started in 1998? We wanted to increase the value creation on the farm, and create more profits from the dairy production. Our aim was also to create more jobs in the local community. What has greatly contributed to your success? We have an 11 million kroner turnover a year, where 20% of the revenues come from our own farm shop, and the rest comes from sales in other stores and catering establishments in Norway. The way it works for us, is that customers and visitors come to us on the farm. Here they get to see the production, THE FIFTEENTH ISSUE


THE LIST

they see how we make things, and they get to taste it then and there. The farm functions as our marketing in itself; we spend no time on additional marketing. The customer develops a relationship to our products while being here, and so they go out to the stores and create a demand for our cheese and products. The stores then contact us, and as for today we have a waiting list. What do you get in your day to day, and personally, to have built up the farm in this way? There are a lot of positives, and also things that we have to learn to live with. To start with the best parts, it is that we did create more jobs in our local community, and the farm has gotten a solid economic foundation. It has been and still is important that the farm has become well economically equipped for the future, and this has also made the son, with his family, want to take over. We meet a lot of nice people, and we are appreciated. In addition, we get to talk with the city habitants that come here to the farm. We get to give them a realistic insight into the everyday, and they get a better understanding of what it is like to live this life, a farming life. This is important to us, because many people have biased impressions. An example is when they see the large houses here, and think that large buildings are the same as wealth. Then they don’t yet understand what it means to have old farm houses. It’s a lot of work, with economical challenges and maintenance to keep things in good condition and in use. We have a unique opportunity to give this insight when they come to us in our farm yard. That is when we get to explain that we have made conscious, strategic choices so that the farm will be well economically equipped for the future, by creating additional feet to stand on. We are no longer entirely dependent on the dairy price. If we would have run the farm as we used to, just the two of us, there would be 1 man here. Now there are 8 full time positions in the cheese factory and 2 full time positions on the farm. We are a lot more people, and it is a very pleasant working environment. What we in addition have to learn to live with, is that from May through September, it is impossible to have privacy here on the farm. It is impossible to be home on the farm and have time off, cause it will be teeming with people here in the farm yard. So you lose your private THE FIFTEENTH ISSUE

life, but that is the price you pay to succeed with this, and so we rather have to find solutions that makes this work. The farm is well economically equipped for the future, but that doesn’t mean that we will now lie back and rest on what we have built. We are now investing hard, and thus we have to increase production by 50%. There are big tasks ahead to defend the choices we have made, for the next generation to take over and increase production and operations. We have tripled the square footage on the farm with a new building, and to defend the new debt we have to increase sales, and increase production. It is a lot of work, but it is what we have chosen. This is one among many success stories along The Golden Road, and they are all eager to offer you their best, unique experiences in food, drink, culture and activities. You know where it is, you know how to get there, you know what you want, and even if you don’t know - what are you waiting for? a

SAY YES IN A RECYCLED DRESS Want to be a ravishing, blushing bride and save the environment at the same time? Look no further than Fretex’s spring Wedding Fair, giving brides and grooms-to-be a cheaper, greener alternative for their big day - without compromising on style.

any couples dread the costliness of a wedding, so we want to show that you don’t have to break the bank to get married. Here, you can get good-as-new dresses, tuxedos and tableware for a fraction of the price, and have a budget wedding in style,” says Monica Eiknes, shop manager at FretexNardo, where the events will take place. Several local establishments, such as a florist, a dress tailor and a hairdresser, will also be present at the fair, and available for any questions from the public. The second-hand retailer has gone all-in for their two-week event, aiming to give couples a helping hand in every aspect of their future wedding. “In addition to shoes and outfits, we sell anything needed for a sit-down dinner, as well as decorative items. If you have a specific style in mind, we can help source what you are after,” says Monica, adding that they recently helped a thankful bride collect glasses and tableware for her big day, and she managed to deck out her whole table in pre-used treasures from Fretex shops.

GOOD PRICE, GOOD CAUSE With wedding budgets often exceeding 100, 000 kroner, getting hitched can be a major setback for any household. Just renting a pre-worn dress at a bridal shop can cost a whopping 10, 000 kroner, making every hour spent wearing it worth the sum of a three-course restaurant meal. In other words, getting married has become big business, with several companies cashing in on loved-up couples planning their dream day. 25

That is not the case at Fretex, however. “Every penny from each purchase in our shops are contributing to supporting The Salvation Army’s projects, including running children’s homes and creating jobs for disadvantaged groups,” says Astrid Lind, sales manager for Fretex MidtNorge. “Also, everything we are given is utilised in one way or another. The unsellable garments we receive are instead used for other purposes, such as wall insulation or cleaning rags!”

A FOCUS ON GIVING It is not news that the textile industry is a major climate offender, and especially so for an outfit worn only once. At Fretex Nardo’s wedding fair, there will be a possibility to rent a pre-used dress, with rental prices starting at 500 kroner. If you choose to buy one of the dresses, it will cost you 1,000 kroner and upwards. Not a bad price for a hand-picked, dry-cleaned bridal gown eager to endure another trip down the aisle. And if a dress is almost perfect, lacking that inch on the sleeve, Fretex also has a trained seamstress available to the rescue. As well as being a zero-waste alternative to traditional bridal shops, with a much lower price tag to boot, Fretex additionally gives previous brides and grooms the opportunity to be part of another couple’s big day.”We want to emphasise the act of giving, and invite people to contribute to someone else’s wedding. Let a future bride have the day of her life in a dress that otherwise would collect dust at the back of your closet,” Monica says. “Your dress deserves another day to shine!” a THE FIFTEENTH ISSUE

Refresh your style FEATURE

ost of us need a trigger to introduce changes in our lives, be it a new year, something wearing out, or... springtime! Let spring be a reason to refresh your style and become more eco-friendly at the same time. There are a few simple ways to renew your wardrobe and, what at the first glance might seem a bit more complicated, also your apartment. Perhaps most importantly, you can do it all with a small budget. When buying second-hand you can find some unique pieces that, in addition to being quite distinctive, are wallet friendly. You not only save your own money but also support the environment and local economy by reusing what has already been used and purchased. Even with a big budget, I tend to choose second-hand shops. Why? I love the treasure hunt aspect of those stores. You never know what you will find, and the notion of discovering something unexpected is amazing. However, there is a common misconception when it comes to finding the best second-hand pieces. Many people think you need to have a distinctive style or special interest in

vintage design to find something that fits you. In fact, all you need is patience. Be stubborn, be patient and look in many thrift shops. I guarantee that you will find a delightful mix of new and old items, from high-end brands to home sewn pieces. It isn’t all about money. When purchasing used clothes, you get more than that. The mantra is as follows: what you see is what you get. If the fabric feels and looks good, you will feel and look amazing! Why is that? The fabric has already been worn, washed and had a late night twirl. Therefore, you will not be disappointed after the first wash, the size stays the same, and so do colours. Buying vintage gives you a great opportunity to see how the fabric ages over time. What you see is what you get. Got it now? Voilà ! What can be observed recently is a so-called fast food approach to shopping. People do not want to spend too much time on shopping, which often results in buying clothes based on trends rather than their actual needs. We buy too much, too quickly, and too expensively. Most of the clothes in thrift shops are quite new, however. You can easily find plenty of almost-new items for a fraction of the price. I like the idea that you should try to find 26

your own taste and ask yourself if you truly want and like that particular item before buying it. Try being a more conscious buyer so you can reduce waste, support existing stores and spread the word. Make your own personal style that will never go out of fashion. The world is begging us to be more eco. I am sure that once you enter your first second-hand shop, you will be amazed by the amount of pieces to be found there. From women’s and men’s clothing, to children’s gear, shoes, toys and books. Bring your kid to Fretex Nardo and have fun discovering with them all the hidden treasures. How to reuse things and not throw them away can be a valuable lesson for children, and fun for the whole family. Interestingly, people go to second-hand stores not only to buy clothes but also furniture. Sometimes it is just enough to refresh your home by hanging up some fun retro fabric on a wall. You do not have to spend a fortune on redecorating your apartment making permanent changes. Small details can add lots of character to a room without breaking the bank. What is more, if you are a bit hands on, you can easily redesign some of your old clothes into decoration elements. What about making a pillowcase from an old sweater? It might be easily done within a couple of hours, and you will have a unique pillow for your sofa. At this point you probably ask yourself what if I can’t sew or just do not have enough time? The answer is again: second-hand. How to do eco-shopping in Trondheim? I already mentioned Fretex but there are plenty more options. In the city centre you will find several vintage and thrift shops worth checking out. 27

I also recommend checking out finn.no before you decide to go to Ikea. It is likely that you will find what you are looking for and help contribute to environmental friendliness for a fraction of the price. Note! Remember to donate instead of throwing away your old stuff. Even though your old items have run their course with you, they can still live on in someone else’s home. If we all supported vintage stores and bought fewer new items, it would make a massive impact on the environment, by reducing the energy and resources required to make new products. a

THE FIFTEENTH ISSUE

Although a beautiful, entertaining, magical, addictive, and inspiring destination in its own right, Trondheim is much more than just a city. It is also a region, Trondheimsregionen, the fourth biggest urban area in the country and the centre of Trøndelag. It is the heart of the middle of

Norway, Midt-Norge, and it is the wider area newcomers fall in love with. And if you haven’t fallen head over heals for Trondheimsregionen yet, then take a look outside the city and find out secret stories from the other side of the fjord. The beauty of the region is that you not only have

ust outside Trondheim, on the other side of the fjord, lies a lesser-known and mysterious kommune called Rissa. Rumour has it that during World War II a British agent jumped out of a plane somewhere on the east side of the Kommune and vanished. Local legends still abound: what happened to this foreign agent? And what of the significant amount of cash that disappeared with him? This detail perhaps stimulates the imagination all the more. Whether he perished in the jump, or survived and was captured, or ran away, or was eaten by wild animals; what happened to the money he brought to a small town in the Mid-Norway more than 70 years ago? 30

everything in one place but it is also easily accessible. Let us take you for a journey into the mountains, a trip to other towns, walks in the woods, and strolls along seaside. For the second time in a row, The List presents a one day trip outside the city. No time to waste, let’s get on a ferry together.

Stories of this kind can be investigated by visiting Statsbygd, Rissa, and Råkvåg kommunes, which lie just across the fjord. The kommunes (and their stories) are linked together by a lovely route called Perler På En Snor, meaning ‘pearls in a row’. After a quick 20-minute ferry ride from Flakk to Rørvik, the must-see sites are the museum in Statsbygd, Rein Church, and Råkvåg. The Coastal Museum in Stadsbygd (Kystens Arv) offers one of the largest collections of traditional boats, and a workshop where wooden boats are created in the same fashion as they have for 2,000 years, and are still being made to this day. It is located only 12km from Flakk after the ferry crossing. Currently closed due to a big renovation, the museum will be reopened before summer 2017. Visitors will have the opportunity to not only admire the exhibits, but also to borrow some of the boats and have a trip along the coastline. Following highway 717 further north, one will soon reach Rissa, the next stop in the row of pearls. Set in a lovely wide valley, Rissa is a quiet and small town, which does not offer visitors all its treasures on one plate. Instead, one has to dig into local rumours and investigate what the area has to offer. Don’t let first impressions mislead you;


THE LIST

There is so much undiscovered space, that you can almost lose yourself there. Just be careful and don’t lose yourself for good.

Rissa is not just like any other sleepy countryside town. Diverting from the most commonly used road (717), and taking the slightly longer road 195 might open more opportunities to experience history. Just outside the town, there are remnants of an aircraft wreck from WWII, from a plane that crashed into a mountain called Storsalen after a mission in Narvik. The 718 road that leads from the centre to another hidden gem of the region. In perhaps the most inconspicuous place imaginable, just next to a roundabout that connects roads 718 and 717, is a quiet ordinary-looking petrol station. In fact, compared with most modern petrol stations, one might be forgiven for thinking this run down spot, with a couple of sad looking pumps, was not in use. But delve a little deeper and you will find the the most unexpected little gem: a restaurant hidden within the old garage! Even those who have heard about the restaurant might miss it, as there is nothing outside to suggest a cosy, sophisticated and eco-friendly restaurant. The name, Smørehallen, and a butcher’s chalk board are all there is to alert passing drivers. Those who open the door, either by accident or curiosity, get the feeling of entering an alternate world. A world where industrialism meets tradition; where guests sit in simple 31

The road to Råkvåg provides astonishing views as it meanders along the coast wooden chairs at a huge common table, straddling the old mechanic pit, eating locally sourced food and beverages; where the light comes from a massive rolling garage gate of transparent plastic, and the sausages are prepared in the old station shop, using exclusively local meat. Step out of Smørehallen, blinking in the midday sun, with a ‘full tank’, and you will be ready for something quite different again; Rein Monastery. A gem less in the rough. It is easily accessible and really quite difficult to overlook. Those who pull away from the gas station and take road 717 quickly realise the road is leading to somewhere beautiful. Old trees planted by German nuns many years ago line the road, guiding tourists to a small red church and the Rein Abbey ruins. It’s difficult not to fall in love with this place. For those hungry for breath-taking views, it’s just a short walk from the ruins to an area that will easily impress. Nature lovers will be happy to learn more about the garden and old trees, and of course any history buffs will find solace in a library filled with books dating back hundreds of years. Our last stop on the Pearls in a Row is Råkvåg; a one-hour drive from the Rein Abbey. The road to Råkvåg provides astonishing views as it meanders along the coast, with numerous opportunities to stop and find your own ‘pearls in the row’. On the way to Råkvåg, home to fishing lovers, there are plenty of places worth stopping at: Hasselvika for military history lovers, Fevåg for those who like to wander in nature, or Selnes for those who are into climbing and other outdoor activities. The ferry to Rissa leaves from Flakk every 30 minutes during the day and it takes approximately two hours to drive or five hours cycling to collect the best pearls. How long you spend at each spot is up to you (and the limitations of daylight). There is so much undiscovered open countryside, however, that you can easily lose track of time. So be careful in your pursuit of missing agents and suitcases full of money, that you do not become missing in action yourself! a THE FIFTEENTH ISSUE

U C THE C I R ECONOMY ESSAY

What is it and why is it important? Words by Helle Moen

A

ugust 8, 2016 went down in history as the ‘Earth Overshoot Day’. This marked a turning point when the worlds’ inhabitants started using more resources than nature could regenerate in a given year. Resources are used through overfishing, overharvesting, and emitting more CO2 into the atmosphere than forests can sequester. If we continue on this path we will be using three times our available resources by 2050. At the same time, prices for many critical resources have been steadily increasing. If not controlled, commodity prices will skyrocket, reducing manufacturers’ profits and thereby hindering economic growth. The problem, however, is not a lack of resources in itself, but in their use. We waste resources. According to the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) humans dispose of 2.12 billion tons of waste every year. It is becoming increasingly clear that traditional business models must be changed. The usual mode of thinking is based on an assumption that exploration companies extract raw materials, which are then turned into products by manufacturing companies. Raw materials that are not used directly for products are discarded as waste, and so are the finished products once they have reached the end of their life. At this point, all of the energy that was used and its value, is lost. Not to mention that we may have to pay to get rid of the old things.

THE LIST

The Circular Economy is a concept that aims to change this phenomenon, and is slowly becoming a sustainable alternative enabling society to decouple economic growth from the exploration of raw materials. There are several ways to define the circular economy, but the most common comes from Ellen MacArthur Foundation: “A circular economy is one that is restorative and regenerative by design, and which aims to keep products, components, and materials at their highest utility and value at all times, distinguishing between technical and biological cycles.” A key learning from this quote is that humans shouldn’t talk about waste anymore; we should look at different product streams, and find uses for them where they create the most value. This is also an example of a good business practice. Huge opportunities can be found in this transition: for individuals; for companies; and for society. Benefits include improvement of economic growth, substantial material cost savings, employment opportunities, and increased innovation! The Ellen MacArthur Foundation, SUN, and McKinsey have each identified and researched circular economy principles, estimating that Europe can take advantage of the impending technology revolution and create a net benefit of €1.8 trillion by 2030. This is €0.9 trillion more than the current linear development path. Putting it simply, circular economy could create tremendous 33

opportunities for industrial renewal, regeneration, and innovation. A current example of this potential is found in the maritime market in Norway, which was worth over 2.5 billion NOK in 2013 and is growing steadily, even despite the fact that 30% of the fish volume is still going unused. It is exciting how the circular economy opens up new business models. The sharing economy, where focus is shifted from owning assets to having access to services -- is part of this change. Why do you need to buy a car if you can have access to it when you need it? It would be parked most of the time anyway. New companies with this type of business model are popping up all the time; they challenge traditional thinking and regulations, leading the pace of change to constantly increase. What is crucial in the shift towards a circular economy is design thinking. There are areas that should not be overlooked when designing a product and maintain the shift. Selection of materials, standardization and modularization, efficient manufacturing, maintainability and end-of-life handling should all be taken into consideration to minimise the damage we do to the environment. So, what can businesses exactly do to be a part of this development? First of all, it’s all about awareness. Fortunately, it is essential to remember that a small change is already a change, not everything has to be done at once. Businesses should start with small adjustments and learn from there. Secondly, it’s also about cooperation. The circular economy depends on the different players in an ecosystem working together. Collaborative efforts can increase efficiency and eventually profits for all, even in the long run. To challenge the suppliers and even customers may also be relevant; after all, there are financial gains in the entire value chain, and all should benefit. Furthermore, going through all processes, looking for efficiency gains and stop loss of valuable raw material is another action to take to take part in the change. Can your waste be used as raw material to other manufacturers? Or maybe you can use secondary raw material yourself? Don’t call things waste anymore: there are differentiated products, not only product and waste streams. Consider your equipment, your machines and even your infrastructure. Could you share, internally or externally? Do your partners or even competitors own assets that they don’t utilise and that all would benefit from sharing? I’m sure that once you start thinking about it, you will look at your personal items and assets in new ways. a THE FIFTEENTH ISSUE

FIRST SWIM OF 2017

If this Easter you are in the company of kids, or even if you are not, how about you finally make that swimming trip you have been planning for a long while now? The ten-metre dive in Pirbadet sure sounds impressive if you are brave enough to jump, but would you dare jump in the fjord and initiate the beginning of the swimming season? Here at the List, we hope you would, so we suggest Sjøbadet - right in the heart of Trondheim, a facility equipped with warm showers you might wish for once you give a spring fjord swimming a go. Needless to say, swimming in fjord does give you bragging rights. 36

You might be wondering why we are stopping at the library, but do not be impatient, sit back comfortably and listen why. Can you imagine yourself snuggled up on the sofa with a crime novel in your hands? It might be snowing outside, or perhaps not, but you are not aware of it since you are racing through the pages of your book, eager to find out what will happen next. Norwegian Easter - Crime phenomenon (påskekrim) began in 1923 by the Gyldendal Publishing house which published an ad in the newspapers that at first glance looked like a regular news bulletin. The entry read “The Bergen Train Robbed Last Night”, promoting a crime novel written by Nordahl Grieg and Nils Lie. Needless to say, the book was a success, and in the years that followed Easter time began being known as the peak season for crime literature. So, why not snuggle up on your sofa and read a crime novel or two while you are waiting for your Easter leg of lamb to roast in the oven? Have a cup of tea or a glass of wine and enjoy a thrilling crime novel. If you are searching for a place to escape your couch, let us say a place that also serves great coffee, delicious food and has an abundance of books to choose from, give Sellanraa Bok & Bar’s couch a try - you’ll hardly regret it.

6 VASSFJELLET OR CROSS COUNTRY SKIING

A farewell to ski season is upon us. Therefore, if the weather allows it, make an effort and go for one last downhill ski trip to Vassfjellet. The sun is finally shining and the idea of skiing for the last time this season is tempting, is it not? You might know by now that cross-country skiing is a synonym for Easter. So, make sure you have packed few oranges (said to represent the Sun) and Kvikk Lunsj, as these are the trademarks of Easter time. The story goes that a long time ago, Johan Throne Holst, the founder of Freia, went hiking with a colleague. Somewhere along the way, they got lost, and his colleague scolded Mr Holst, who for the very first time had forgotten to bring chocolate on the trip. It is no wonder Kvikk Lunsj wrapper displays hiking routes now. So, why don’t you pick up a Kvikk Lunsj bar or few and choose from many hiking/ trekking/possibly skiing routes they suggest? After all, you remember that time when you went hiking/ trekking/skiing and have forgotten to bring few bars of Kvikk Lunsj with you? Yeah, neither do we.

EASTER AROUND THE WORLD

Easter is celebrated around the world, but some of the Easter traditions around the world date to pagan celebrations of welcoming the first signs of spring. Here is how Easter is celebrated in some countries around the world.

7

In Norway, friends and families gather in the mountain cabins for one last ski trip before the winter ends. Some families celebrate this with påskeskirenn. And while every generation participates, from the oldest to the youngest, there is only one winner who is

awarded a homemade wooden medal. Norwegian Easter is nothing without oranges, KvikkLunsj, hot chocolate, Easter lamb, painted eggs, Easter eggs with sweets inside, skiing, after ski beer, sun cream, sunglasses and påskeskirenn.

Sweden

Hungary

In Sweden, children paint their cheeks red, dress up in long skirts and colourful headscarves. Then they go from home to home in their neighbourhoods trading paintings and drawings in the hope of receiving sweets.

In Hungary, there is a popular Easter Monday tradition called ‘sprinkling’, in which boys playfully sprinkle perfume, cologne or water over a young women’s head, and ask for a kiss.

CYCLING ALONG SKANSEN AND LADESTIEN

The time has finally come when those who do not dare to cycle throughout the winter, can dust off the spiderwebs off their bikes. Therefore, it is a great time to hop on your bike and go for a ride along Skansen and Ladestien. Along the way, you could stop by Lille Skansen, Ladekaia or Sponhuset for a drink or a little bite. Do not own a bike? Well, then we recommend a long, rewarding walk along these trails by the sea.

JONSVATNET AND BYMARKA

We are absolutely certain that by now, you have, probably at least dozen times, went on a hiking or skiing trip in Bymarka. If however, by some mysterious force you were prevented from experiencing this stunning place, then it should take a priority seat on your ‘to see/to do’ list. If the spot is more than your frequent destination, we encourage you to maintain the tradition, as there is nothing better than a proper Sunday trip on Easter day. In case you grew tired (hardly possible, but we’ll entertain the idea) of Bymarka, how about giving Jonsvatnet area the benefit of the doubt? With ample of hiking possibilities to choose from, it is guaranteed fun. And if you own a bicycle, how about a ride around the lake? Surely, you own one, we are in Norway. Get on a bike and enjoy yourself.


THE LIST

Bermuda

Belgium

On Bermuda, locals gather on Good Friday to celebrate the Easter by flying homemade kites, eating codfish cakes and hot cross buns.

Kids are told that the church bells fly out to Rome before Easter, and they return early in the morning on Easter with - what else - chocolate eggs. The bells drop the eggs in the garden, and so children go out first thing in the

9

morning to find all the eggs. It is a big chocolate egg feast with an occasional chocolate rabbit. Traditionally, people used to fast before Easter and then celebrate Easter with lots of food (and, of course, chocolate).

KORSVIKA

Czech Repb.

Bulgaria

There is a long tradition in the Czech Republic where on Easter Monday boys take willow branches and tie ribbons on them. Boys use these branches for spanking women - as this is supposed to transfer the tree’s vitality and fertility to the women.

The tradition of hiding chocolate eggs from children is not popular here, instead, on Easter Sunday kids and adults have egg fights - whereby they knock each other’s eggs. Whoever

(also Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia) comes out of the game with their egg unbroken is pronounced the winner and is assumed to be the member of the family that will have the most luck in the coming year.

When was the last time you organised or attended a barbeque party?

When was the last time you organised or attended a barbeque party? Last summer? Can you even remember? If not, the time has clearly come for you to gather some friends and family and head to Korsvika and enjoy the first days of spring.

VITENSENTERET

Vitensenteret is an attractive place for all those who love the wonders of science. Whether you are an adult or a kid, adventure and fun are guaranteed. Besides exciting exhibitions, there are several activities that children would enjoy. Fancy building a ballongbil (we will not tell you what it is, you’ll have to check it out yourself ), making a vitamin C rocket, casting pewter figurines, or driving Orbitron?

This is where our ‘great egg hunt’ ends. The city is stunning during the Easter time too, is it not? But, if this year you have decided to go on a little adventure somewhere outside the Trondheim’s region, why not rent a cabin with few friends? Don’t forget to bring your skis, a crime novel, Kvikk Lunsj and good mood along! Takk for turen! a 41

How are you feeling? I have always enjoyed working during the winter. It’s easier to focus, and it got that nice black metal feeling to it. Nowadays, I am just waiting for the snow to come and dampen all bright frequencies, leaving the city in a dark ambient buzz. What can we find in your studio? Most likely a complete mess. If you ignored all the speakers everywhere, I guess you could have mistaken it as a meth-lab. Nowadays it is filled with chemical equipment. But there is also a vinyl-engraving machine, tons of guitars, a small library, about THE FIFTEENTH ISSUE

degree in Sound Art, so I really like that conceptual twist. What sound can’t you forget? I have a couple of favorites. My hometown Ålesund burned down in 1904, and to mark that event, every year, thousands of locals walk through the streets of the city in the middle of the night. Historians talk about the fire and the consequences, while thousands listen. The thing here is that it’s January, and everyone have mittens on. The sound of five thousand people clapping with mittens. Bob-bob-bob-bobbob. That must be my favourite sound. A different sound I can’t forget is the sound of Pachinko Halls in Japan. You can find them everywhere, where they have hundreds of gaming machines that constantly are shooting thousands of small steel balls into the course of the game. One machine itself is not very interesting, but when you collect hundreds, it gets intense. Just google it: Pachinko Hall. How has Trondheim been an impact on your work? I normally say that Trondheim

four thousand contact microphones and cables. Lots and lots of cables. There is a work bench there as well, somewhere under everything else. And of course; a lot of broken stuff I have seen people about to throw away, and I get it, with a plan to fix it when I find time for it. I should start to learn I never find time for it. Tell me about Polyfontura It started out as an idea to create an experimental music video, but it has really grown out of proportions, and now it is a huge two-year documentary project. The concept is that I do audio recordings of weird stuff I find in nature. Sounds from the inside of trees and waterfalls and bumblebees. Then I tweak, twist and turn those sounds into tonal sounds, instruments and other sounds I can use to compose normal music. If there is anything you could call normal music. The whole process is documented in a movie by director Jon Vatne, and of course, the score for the movie is the music you see me make in the documentary. I have a Master’s 42

has been treating me very well for the last six-seven years. I guess I belong to the lucky group of people that started studying something that really fitted my skills, ambitions and interests. I have been studying music technology, and have slowly been able to do weirder and bigger things in an open and supportive academic environment. I remember well the discussions about the art and music scene that were going on when I first came to Trondheim in 2009. People were talking about some sort of cultural crisis, but from that point on, I feel that every branch of arts have been blooming. It has been great to live in a city where artists are constantly trying to prove the importance of arts. If we were at any low-point in 2009, I feel we’re at some high-point now. Some people might disagree with me, but as I said; the city has been treating me very well, so I’m easily biased. Where is your next destination? I am actually moving to Bergen in February. After many good years in Trondheim, I feel

like going somewhere else. New grounds, new possibilities. You know, yolo. Or something. Which Norwegian Artist would you recognize as an inspiration? Oh, that is tricky. There are so many. But of course, you have great musicians from the previous young generation, like Hild Sofie Tafjord, Maja Ratkje and Stian Westerhus. They really opened my eyes when I was younger. Nowadays I get inspired by fearless musicians that just go about doing all sorts of different things, in all kinds of expressions. Like my good friends Anja and Heida of the duo Skrap. Every time they do something new, I get

surprised in one way or another. I just recently discovered Øyvind Torvunds compositions and was really inspired to think differently about compositional tools. He really should have won Nordisk Råds music prize this year. Like really, really. Notes to self Eat more types of brown cheese; Always whittle away from the body; Eat cod liver oil in every month containing the letter ‘r’; Eat more sour cream. And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of all is the blue whale. Upcoming exhibitions/shows? I am working on a new piece which is based on the texts

THE FIFTEENTH ISSUE

We’re now well into the New Year after the ominous annum of 2016 where it seemed everything went to the dogs. That’s not even politically speaking - but in terms of my favourite hate/love subject, namely music venues! Many notable clubs have closed down everywhere from London to Ibiza, and even in Trondheim, we were met with a noticeable shift in nightlife culture after both Familien and BrukBar / Blæst closed their doors.

SO IS ALL HOPE LOST? BARELY Even though BrukBar / Blæst used to be my particular workplace as a promoter, my main motivation was always contributing to Trondheim as an exciting and fun place to live. Now I’m enjoying some time off from professionally working within the live music industry, which leaves me with even more time to discover shows as a fan, and explore everything the city has to offer. My weekends (and weekdays!) have seen me move far more around town, and I know a lot of my friends have done the same. Though some still might be missing their favourite bar or club - their ‘home away from home’ - the possibilities 44

that have opened up are in my opinion more exciting. So let’s take a little stroll from the east to the south of the city, and allow me to give you some pointers as to what’s happening in terms of great shows in Trondheim!

SVARTLAMON / LADEMOEN / BURAN Tucked between a kindergarten and a tattoo shop, Verkstedhallen & Lobbyen is the unassuming venue a lot of the city’s music scene is betting its cards on. With the main hall sporting a capacity of just over 600, and a small bar stage for intimate shows, this place just needs some slight brushing up and a couple more shows a year to live up to its grand potential. And rumours have it that that’s exactly what they’re working on… With friendly neighborhood bars like Ramp, Mellomveien and Kudos, there’s enough to keep you busy within the area. One particular show recommendation is in collaboration with this year’s Jazzfest, seeing the legendary UK electronic veteran Squarepusher and his newly formed band, Shobaleader One, coming to town on May 13th. One for the books! Although not much has been disclosed


THE LIST

For me, as well as thousands of other students and alumni, the student society is a whole city of its own.

COMING UP

Shobaleader One 13 May, 21:00 @Verkstedhallen

about it yet, the guys who brought Bruce Springsteen to town last year are also working on Dahls Arena, a stadion sized project based in the «backyard» of the city’s big Dahls brewery. If all goes to according to plan, we’re in for some really big names starting this summer.

SOLSIDEN If jazz and contemporary music is your thing, then surely (and hopefully!) you’ve been a fan of Dokkhuset for a while now. It’s a beautiful venue, with a spacious stage, excellent sound, a relaxed atmosphere, and a thoroughly underused roof terrace. Look no further than 15 March and the show with Megalodon Collective to get an impression of where the young Norwegian jazz scene will be hosted this year.

MIDTBYEN The very intimate Bar Moskus doesn’t allow for more than 80 or 90 people, but that doesn’t stop them from booking some very high profile names within their favourite genres like folk, country, Americana, and

jazz. They probably rank highest in esteem among the city’s seasoned musicians at the moment, and rightfully so; there’s a lot of love in everything they do. If fuzzy garage and surf rock is your thing, by the way, you could do worse than checking out Hvitmalt Gjerde on the 24 March. Not too far away you can find Fru Lundgreen, the city’s ‘oldest rock lady’. Unimpressed by trends, this place has existed as long as anyone who’s still out on the town can remember. There are live shows pretty much every weekend, but one that deserves extra attention is the split show between Oslo doom band HYMN and Trondheim noise legends Barren Womb on the 31 March. Just up the street you can find Good Omens, a three story bar and venue that lives up to its Gaiman/Pratchett inspired name. Consistently lined up with trashy movie nights, a free-to-play 8-bit Nintendo, a healthy portion of alternative/metal music playing but with a decidedly relaxed vibe. They might just give Fru Lundgreen some sound competition on the 31 March with Dunderbeist on stage, a seasoned Norwegian rock band with a steady cult following. I’m also excited to follow Kunsthallen Trondheim; though mainly an art space, it’s already been host to both exciting live and club nights, in a decidedly different-than-usual setting. The ever-talented Kari Harneshaug is playing here the 22 April! Here’s to hoping more will follow… Last but certainly not least, Byscenen is probably the most well-established venue Trondheim currently has to offer. Run by the team that’s behind the yearly Pstereo festival it can be said they know how to attract a crowd. Byscenen has perhaps the best big room sound in town and is well complimented by the classy restaurant Alma’s and the basement dive bar Boxer. Unsurprisingly, one of my absolute highlights for this spring is the New York noise rock band Swans, playing on the 10 March. Having had the honour of presenting them to a sold out BrukBar/Blæst back in 2015, I expect to be just as blown away this time around.

ELGESETER Though I’ve spent several of my student years at Studentersamfundet, I actually had to look up the name for this particular part of town… for me, as well as thousands of other students and alumni, the student society is a whole city of its own. With three stages ranging from hall-sized Storsalen, mid-sized Klubben and intimate Knaus, this is where you’ll constantly be able to see new and established Norwegian artists every weekend. You’ll probably find me somewhere near the bar when Ivan Ave is playing the 28 April, an Oslo-based artist with an affinity for jazzheavy, lyrically minded rap. a THE FIFTEENTH ISSUE

VEGAN FAIR

V

egan fair returns to Trondheim for the third time in April. The idea behind it is to learn more about the vegan lifestyle and it doesn’t matter if you are vegan or just interested in finding out more about the vegan lifestyle. The buzzing and cheerful first two issues give an insight on what to expect this year. The organizers explain that the idea behind the April event is to provide a vegan mini-festival, which has a focus on experiences rather than shopping. There will be a full day programme of cooking classes and workshops. For example, Per Viderup from Falafelkompaniet and Grønnsaksverksted will be hosting a cooking class on how to make tasty and quick food from simple, healthy ingredients and NOAH will host a talk on animal rights.   They are also trialling a new concept inspired by ‘Pechakucha’ - short focused talks that use 20 slides for 20 seconds each.  Each

of the presenters at the Vegan Fair will use less than 10 minutes to give a flavour of various organisations, groups and projects, including Ducky, Kattebrakka, Animal Insight Norway and Trondheim Kooperativ. Alongside the workshop and cooking class programme there will be activities for children including face painting and activities from ReMida – an organisation that promotes remaking of old things into new, recycling and upcycling. In Coffee Annan you will find a variety of cultural performances. There will also be a cinema zone showing short films and documentaries on the topic.  Organizers promise that they have got lots of other exciting stuff prepared that they can’t reveal just yet, but hopefully this gives you a taste of what the event in April is about!  Watch out for free giveaways from local and international cruelty free companies as well! —zd

Kong. Both headed to the same musical festival where they had the chance to play together during a few workshops and decided they wanted to create a project. Karoline already knew Finn Magnus, and Heidi suggested including Vvzela, thinking this would create a interesting edge to the project. The musical part of the concert is a mix between improvisation, pre-written music and a mix between the two. This allows artist Vvzela to play with the visual elements and always expect the unexpected so that a large part of the visual concert is naturally also improvised.

most. However simple it might seem for ski jumping fans, it is going to be the most demanding and tiring tournament for the athletes in the entire World Cup. The competition in Granåsen will take place on 16 March, just after three days of jumps in Oslo, both individual and team, and two days of individual events in Lillehammer, and prior to flights in Vikersund. The jumpers will spend two days in Trondheim taking part in two jumping series calculated in the overall standing, in prolog, and in individual competition. Then, together with their 48

Originating in Canada, the Mosaic Festival has been a popular event in the city of Regina in the Saskatchewan province since the late 1970’s. Native Canadian Amanda Fayant, now a Trondheim resident grew up with it and she had such good memories of it she decided to bring it to Trondheim. “What I found from speaking to many different international communities here in Trondheim was that they have a lot of events throughout the year, but they struggle to get visitors from outside their own communities to take part,” says Fayant. “The festival was such a fun memory for me. I really wanted to work with culture again, so I got the idea for a Mosaic Festival in Trondheim and I just basically decided to go for it.” The Mosaic Festival takes place in Midtbyen, with each country having their own venue and a program for the entire day. Visitors buy a passport that gives access to all venues and events. “This year we have expanded the festival from being a one-day event to one that goes over three days,” says Fayant. “On Thursday we have a special program for kindergartens and on Friday evening, we will have the official opening and various cultural events happing in a few different venues. Then, like last year, the main event is on Saturday during the day.” —km

It focuses on small and medium local businesses as well as the public sector. “Despite having a very big talent pool in the large student community, many students leave the region once they graduate. Thus we are not up there with comparable regions when it comes to creating value locally. Our goal with this day is to showcase the many opportunities that exist in Trondheim and the surrounding municipalities,” explains Communications Manager in NiT, Kenneth Stoltz. — il-w

he Swans are crossing the pond this spring and bringing a heavy dose of post punk sound to Trondheim. An experimental rock group founded in the hard-hitting scene of 1980’s New York, the Swans flew high over the post punk line ups for over a decade. Though, despite this success, the roster for the band seemed ever in flux–the only constants being lead singer Micahel Gira and keyboardist Jarboe, with an honourable mention to semi-constant guitarist Norman Westberg. A number of factors led the band going to roost in the late nineties after one final album Swans are Dead. But it took less than ten years for the Swans to decided to spread their wings once more. In 2010, lead singer Michael Gira reformed Swans, sans keyboardist Jarboe. Gira decided to bring back Swans during an Angels of Light show around 2005 when he felt “a nascent urge right then to re-form or reinvigorate Swans because I remembered how elevating and intense that experience was.” The Swans originally became known for their experimental instrumentation and repetitive song structures. Though their music has fluctuated styles throughout the years. Some of their songs have been described as noisy and brutal (in a good way), as well as dark and ominous. Put simply, the band’s sound is an expertly executed blend of earlier hard rock and later pop styles of the wdecade. They revived much of this same sound in 2010, but with a few new twists. —bpk

She explores these relationships through drawings, video, sculpture and three-dimensional collages. In recent years, she has paired facts about the natural world with economy, ecology, memory, evolution, volcanic eruptions, mirror neurons, revolutions, time, and patterns in nature. In her collages, outlines of rooms, shapes and patterns are cut out of photographs, books or magazines, to be entwined and folded out again, so that parts of landscapes, history, time, places and people meet in a complex new mixture of figurations and abstractions. ”The Glacier Breathes While We Are Looking For The Arctic Fog” shows a series of new works of art, where Nygård is concerned about the paradoxical relationship between economic growth and earth's limited natural resources.

For this exhibition Lønseth has created a series of long exposures of the gallery’s window facade. These exposures are presented in the exhibition through a series of fragmentary images, which allows the preserved interplay of light and shadow to surrounds the viewer in the gallery space.

All that matters in the world is Petanque, his best friend Roland and his mother, from whom he was separated at birth. He is, however, certain that he can win her back, if he only can make the perfect pitch and win the Nordic Championship in Pentanque! While the world around him is crumbling in and the giant is slowly approaching, we get a peak into how small people can shift the centre of the universe.

Kosmorama – Kosmorama is “seeing the world through different eyes”. That sums up adequately why films are so important. A great film experience provides views, insight and broadens horizons. Every year in week 10 you can experience almost 80 movies from all over the world at Kosmorama – Trondheim International Film Festival. This year at Nova Cinema from the 6th – 12th of March. Many say that films must be seen at a cinema, in our opinion they’re even better at a festival. The experience is greater when you share it with others in the cinema and over a cup of coffee, a bite to eat or a beer afterwards. Whether you’re watching just a few films, or signed up for a festival marathon, we want you to be left with a great festival experience! See you in the darkness of the cinema and outside as well!

A description of the contemporary music genre ‘grunge’ – dark, simple and heavy is an adequate description of the film. Kurt Cobain’s death is left standing as a symbol of the spirit of that age, pain, frustration and solitude. Even though the 90’s don’t look like much fun for typical outsiders, this is also a warm film about love, friendship, and belonging. First-time director and screenwriter Joris-Peyrafitte has made a bold and stylish film with his debut.

This award-winning film from Cannes is both funny and irresistibly charming. It is the summer of 1962 and Olli Mäki has just been award a featherweight title-boxing match in the World Championships. The film takes us on a journey across the Finnish countryside to the capital city, Helsinki for a showdown against the American champion Davey Moore. All Olli needs to do is reduce his weight and concentrate on the task ahead. There is only one snag – he’s in love. Language: Finnish, English Subtitles: Norwegian Age:15+ 93 min

Three women with different backgrounds meet up in Tel Aviv as cohabitants. Salma works as a DJ in a bar and Laila works as a lawyer. None of them are interested in pursuing a religious life as wished by their parents. Instead, they set about trying to find their own identity in Tel Aviv. When Nur moves in – a young religious Muslim girl – things start to change. The girls encounter strong feelings of camaraderie, which transcends their differences.

06.03.2017. - 20:00 - NOVA 1 09.03.2017. - 13:45 - NOVA 2 12.03.2017. - 21:30 - NOVA 3 Dogs is a kind of modern western and may be called the Romanian version of No Country For Old Men. Roman’s Grandfather dies leaving behind a large farm. Roman wants to take over the farm, but is not the only one. His Grandfather’s friends and enemies also wish to voice their opinions and would prefer to see Roman go home. He is putting his head in a hornet’s nest. Dogs is a nihilistic, cynical, crime-thriller; a fair-minded and visual film with a capital F.

In Sami blood, we follow the young Elle Márjá who renounces her Sami identity and tries to fit in with the ways of the Swedish society. We are given insight into how it is to grow up in the Sami culture in the 1930’s, simultaneously observing how the society treated the Sami-people, when race research, humiliation and discrimination were a part of everyday life. Sami Blood is a truly beautiful film. Little of it is overly elaborated and the realism is both strong and touching. Language: Swedish, Northern Sami Subtitles: English 108 min

AT A G L A N CE / S KR Å B L IKK

Films concerning warmth and vulnerability, solitude and communities, the dysfunctional and the beauty in the meetings between people.

In this programme you can find films containing elements of the magic, surreal and absurd. You get among other feelgood, action, musical, feelgood, animation and situation comedies with a twist.

WOLF AND SHEEP 08.03.2017. - 12:00 - NOVA 3 09.03.2017. - 20:00 - NOVA 2 11.03.2017. - 20:00 - NOVA 1 There are three main characters in the western inspired The Winter: Evans (the old foreman on a remote sheep farm), Jara and Patagonia. The film starts with Jara arriving at the farm with the seasonal workers. When the work is finished, the old foreman is fired and Jara is promoted to his position as supervisor. With everyone gone, winter and solitude comes to the farm. This is a poetical tribute to the work undertaken in a typical man-dominated community and all that it entails.

Boys and girls watching their flocks out in the fields, each for themselves. The magic is tied to the story of Kashmiri – the wolf – an intimidating creature who walks on two legs. The war is not on the agenda in this film, but insecurity lies just below the surface and chaos occurs in the village when a rumour concerning approaching armed men is spread around.

06.03.2017. - 22:00 - NOVA 3 10.03.2017. - 21:00 - NOVA 11 12.03.2017. - 21:30 - NOVA 1 Two criminal gangs meet up at a warehouse to undertake an arms deal. Everyone is armed. Free Fire is a chamber piece with huge amounts of carefree violence. Most of all perhaps, it resembles a 70’s version of Reservoir Dogs, with endless gunfire. The film’s strongest feature, however, must be its characters; each so unique that they could have been taken out of a cartoon, the casting is impeccable.

Stories that emphasise individual’s encounters with the mechanics of society. Here you can find everything from pure fiction to movies based on actual events.

The First, The Last is a dystopian future vision narrated like a classic western. Two grumpy headhunters, two silly lovers, two wise men and a Jesus, all clash together in an absurd game of cat and mouse in rural Belgium – where you always seem to bump into the one you least want to meet. Although this is a genre film with an abundance of weapons and a dose of unwarranted violence, there is an undertone of compelling warmth and positivity. Language: French Subtitles: Norwegian 98 min

The film has been acclaimed for its liberating portrayal of female sexuality. Language: Korean, Japanese Subtitles: Norwegian Age: 15+ 144 min

In this film, fictional stories are interwoven in the history of Thailand. The student massacre at the University of Thamassat in 1976 serves as the setting. The film has characteristic manuscript, featuring changing forms and scenes that are repeated with different actors. It is based on how no one – neither an artist nor an intellectual – can recreate such traumatic experiences. By the Time It Gets Dark is a beautiful insight in how the roll of a film can retell true events.

When Layla realises that both her well-integrated family and her birthplace, Amsterdam, aren’t as accommodating to her as she previously believed, the mind of this Muslim girl of Moroccan heritage is set ablaze. Layla runs away, marries a sworn jihadist, and leaves The Netherlands in favour of an Islamic cell in the Middle East. She soon realises that her new community has its own limitations and prejudices. Layla M is the story about the desperate struggle for belonging.

TRONDHEIM INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL 6-12 March

G O U R M ET C IN E M A Welcome to a gourmet “Cine and Dine” experience with Kosmorama. This year, we have selected two documentaries we wish to offer our audience together with a unique dining experience. You may choose between a meal inspired by Nordic cuisine after the screening of Noma, My Perfect Storm, or you can participate in an extended screening of In Defense of Food, with food talk and dining. The event will be held in English. See kosmorama.no/en for more info.

R A M AS KR IK Kosmorama’s Horror film programme will be full of movies that will bring chills down your spine and transport you to the scariest corners of the world. At this year’s festival you can see the brand new Norwegian premiere of Lyst, inspired by the new ‘french wave’ of horror. There will also be three movies from the USA where lonely souls, tough family conditions, and serial killers play important roles. And last, but not least experience Japanese spiritual horror and Spanish body-horror. This is not a film programme for the faint of heart.

LYST 10.03.2017. - 22:00 - NOVA 1 11.03.2017. - 20:10 - NOVA 5 12.03.2017. - 22:00 - NOVA 5

When it comes down to sex and violence, crime author Lisa Rostorp surpasses most of her fellow authors, but after having been the victim of a brutal assault herself she isolates herself in her apartment. After seeing a psychiatrist on a daily basis, and taking a substantial amount of medication, she attempts to regain her life. On her journey to recovery she receives a USB-memory stick in the post…The film embraces the grindhouse-aesthetic, and is a sure winner for the fans of splatter movies.

HARENS ÅR 11.03.2017. - 15:50 - NOVA 2 In Harens År, we meet advertiser Kaarlo, who can no longer handle the pressure and fast paced lifestyle of the city. He leaves behind his career and city life, and heads for the tranquillity of Northern-Finland. On his journey a hare that had been run over becomes his only companion, and after a difficult journey north he encounters a peaceful co-existence. However, when a gang of silly tourists and giggly guides arrives on the scene, Kaarlo’s peace is broken. Harens År is based on a book by Arto Paasilinna.
