to sit down with the County Mayor, Tore Sandvik, to discuss the merger. “Trøndelag was split in two by King Christian VII of Denmark, who historians later said was insane,” he told me. “So when the region has been split apart by an insane king, it’s about time that sane politicians put it together again!” We’ve used this idea of bringing things together, of breaking down borders, as a launchpad to look at the dynamic potential of the wider region. We smugly stumbled across this idea of ‘fusion’ and told ourselves that the merger would bring a divided people back together, opening new cross-disciplinary possibilities. But as we researched this concept further we realised that the change is mostly bureaucratic, and that Trønders have been collaborating unhindered by this perceived ‘border’ for time immemorial. Everything from our beer making to our transport network, our festivals, our orchestras, our Lithuanian food (and photographers!) and our local art scene. They’re not defined or restricted by borders, and we welcome influences from every corner of the county, the country and the world. I was engaged by Aksel Tjora’s column on page 10. He writes about people being “worried about losing borders with powers to define who we are and who we are not” and wrestles with what this means for our sense of community. In its traditional sense, community is an association in which individuals with like-minded interests, typically held shared beliefs and “local orientation”. But it’s quite clear to me that our modern existence allows us to have much more complicated social structures. We are now part of multiple communities and I believe the real challenge for Trondheim and the wider area is how recognise and benefit from this reality. International friends of mine, who are planning to leave Trondheim and return ‘home’, recently told me that it was not because Norway was unwelcoming, but because there is an unspoken expectation that newcomers should ‘become Norwegian’. It is not enough to respect local traditions and assimilate; we are expected to adopt the culture wholeheartedly, don the outdoor trousers, eat our porridge and smile politely at our tax bills. This leaves me conflicted because while I would love to be considered a ‘Trønder’ one day, and have said as much to the next guy at the bar on many an evening out, I also believe there is a need to embrace a wider range of cultures. If we are really going to gain benefit from ‘fusion’, then we need to welcome difference in our community. So don't worry about losing identity, go out there and create it. �

Communal Awareness Across (lost) Borders Writer—Aksel Tjora Illustrator—Marianne Selberg

T

hese are times of mergers, between counties, municipalities, institutions, and many are those who are worried. Emotionally worried about losing borders with powers to define who we are and who we are not, to define with whom we play and stay with, and with whom we do not. Rationally they worry about distances to services and political authority and losing local arenas for societal participation and empowerment. To explore the meaning of borders and such worries, it is relevant to ask which factors lead to the experience of community, how community (or the communal) is defined by borders, and how to redefine community when borders disappear. The near-ubiquity of the term ‘community’ is matched by the vagueness and variability of its meaning. The term is used widely in everyday language, often without any particular exact meaning, to leave it to various actors and audiences to make sense of

2018 / VOL.1

its content, often specific to a context. Within my own discipline of sociology, the worry about the future of community during processes of industrialisation and urbanisation from around the 1850’s and onwards was the trigger of the whole discipline. Two concepts of human association were suggested by the German sociologist Ferdinand Tönnies in 1887: Gemeinschaft was used as a term for an association in which individuals were oriented to the large association as much as, if not more than, to their own self-interest; a warm, including, family-like and dense group of people sharing beliefs and local orientation. Gesellschaft on the other hand described associations lacking the same level of shared belief, but maintained through individuals acting out different roles in everyday life, such as being workers, managers, or business owners. Today it is quite obvious that modern societies consist of both types of social association, by which roles and responsibilities are both born-into (as family and local belonging) 10

and achieved (through education and worklife). Various interests and civil engagements also contribute to a vast range of communities that has been thought of as ‘neo-tribes’. In addition, social media has provided new channels of communal processes that are less place-specific, and that, not in the least, has facilitated continuous ‘communication communities’ between young people. In my research on communal processes, I have concluded the following five aspects of community are, (1) communication, (2) time and place, (3) identification, (4) activity, and (5) situational understanding. With these different aspects of community, there are a vast array of opportunities for experiencing community, on basis for instance of communication on social media, by just being together at some event, by sharing for instance a professional identity (as being a teacher), by doing something together (for instance ‘dugnad’), and by understanding everyday practices (such as the meaning of ‘having a coffee’).


THE LIST

However, this also implies that there are many ways by which people may feel disconnected or alienated; by lack of communication (for instance because of language), being at different places, not being present at the same time, not identifying with each other, not sharing activities, and not understanding what is happening. Further, this implies that borders between various communities are both time-space-related, mental and social. The ‘Thomas Theorem’ is one of very few sociological theorems and states that ‘what people define as real is real in its consequences’. So, when we talk and write about cultural differences between the provinces of North and South Trøndelag for instance, we socially (re)produce differences as real by emphasising these and de-emphasising what unites the two. Various narratives about differences are constructed as real – as reality – in the sense that they are shared among people, and they support us in making sense of the world, to structure it, to cultivate it, to keep it orderly.

Unfortunately, the same narratives are well suited to foster stereotypes and prejudices. When formal borders disappear or change through mergers, well-established communities, narratives and prejudices are maintained, because they are socially rather than formally defined. However, some of the above-mentioned communal processes, for instance communication, proximity, and activity, may be applied strategically to develop community at a new level. It demands however, that resources are put into establishing what we may term ‘communal entrepreneurship’ in which people are brought physically together through events or activities. The emphasis on physicality of such initiatives is supported by my research on urban café communities, in which I discovered ‘communal awareness’ between customers resulting from processes of (1) recognizing the other, (2) experiencing situations together, (3) perceiving the other’s needs, (4) trusting the other, and (5) showing and accepting curiosity. These processes can 11

be regarded as low-threshold communication in the sense that regular presence is all that is needed. The so-called proximity principle implies that such processes evolve over time in a very local context, but may need to be strategically designed to work in larger settings for instance across municipal or county borders. Merging organisations, municipalities or counties may be painful processes, often with centralized authorities and services as a result, in addition to potential cultural crashes. The impact of such crashes however, is potentially reduced by supporting and initiating processes of communal awareness. As mentioned above, the discipline of sociology grew out of fundamentally changing societies in the infancy of industrialisation, resulting in a sober-minded analysis of communities transformed rather than lost. Perhaps current structural changes call for such level-headed analytical as well as clinical approaches. After all, it all comes down to the social construction of community, at another level. � 2018 / VOL.1

REGIONAL SPOTLIGHT

Although a beautiful, entertaining, magical, addictive, and inspiring destination in its own right, Trondheim is more than just a city - it is also a region. Trondheimsregionen is the fourth biggest urban area in Norway and lies at the centre of Trøndelag. It is the heart of the middle-Norway, Midt-Norge,

and provides a wide array adventures and experiences. If you haven't already fallen head over heals for Trøndelag, then take a look outside the city and explore the secrets of the surrounding municipalities. The beauty of the region is that you not only have everything in one place, but also it is

easily accessible. Let us take you on a journey into the mountains, a trip across the fjord, walks in the woods, and strolls along seaside. In this issue, we are turning our attention to the lovely and lively winter markets of Levanger and Røros.

Marsimartnan Levanger's Winter Market 28 Feb – 3 March 2018

This is one of the oldest running winter markets, existing since the time of the Vikings. By Royal Decree in 1682 it was said that ‘The Levanger Market should be as it was in Arild’s time’, meaning to keep to its roots in order to preserve the intentions of the market to feature local goods and fill the needs of the community as its central mission. 2018 / VOL.1

The origins of the market’s name, Marsimartnan, is an old question and one that does not have a simple answer. It has always been timed with the market in Östersund in Jämtland (Sweden) and after Mattismesse (Feast of Saint Matthias). While the market does often fall in March, historians believe the name changed from Mattismartnan (The Matthias Market) over time and has nothing to do with the month of March at all.

THE LIST

The market itself was established to give a trading centre between the farming and hunting communities to the east into Jemtland and Herjedalen, and the costal fishing communities to the west. The exchange of goods was crucial during the winter months and this annual market was the solution to what the Norwegians and Swedes had to sell and buy. The high point of the modern market is the Fakkelnatta, which always happens on Friday night, where there is a two kilometre walk for participants to view over 70 historical tableaux in the town centre, created by volunteers. What makes this extra special is that all the modern lights in the city centre are turned off and the small wooden houses of the city centre echo the ambience of the past. The exact programme for 2018 is still to come, but keep an eye on their website, marsimartnan.no for all the information just after the new year. The activities kick off on the Wednesday 28 February and the market officially opens on Thursday 1 March. �

here are a few things that come to mind when you mention the town of Røros; wool blankets, ancient mines, and the fact it is a Unesco World Heritage site. But for those in the know, the winter market, or the Rørosmartnan, immediately comes top of the list. Today, the market is at capacity with 250 exhibitors, 80,000 visitors and over 300 cultural arrangements to teach handcrafts and perform music. Activity runs day and night. But, this was not always the case. “The key to how successful Rørosmartnan is now, is because in the 70’s it was nearly dead,” tells Lillian Sandnes, Martnan Director. “The municipality, the local business community, and tourist bureau decided to save it. What thought ‘what do we have that is unique? What do we have that nobody else has? Yes, the horse and sleighs.” Ninety horse-drawn sleighs, with 250 riders, travel for weeks from all over Norway and Sweden, creating quite a timeless spectacle when they arrive. The scale of the even is staggering when you consider that there are only about three to five thousand residents normally. According to Sandnes, “There is life everywhere. The whole of Røros is an arena during Røros Martnan.” The town is verbally fully-booked so advanced planning is advised, and worth considering day trips rather than overnighters. The full programme can be found at rorosmartnan.no, along with all other important information about exhibitors, where to stay and how to get there. � 2018 / VOL.1

Trondheim Calling

I

n 2010 a new type of music festival came knockin’ on Trondheim’s door. Trondheim Calling started out with just one night of concerts, but by 2011 had progressed into a fully-fledged, multi-day festival with concerts and events running around the clock. What separates Trondheim Calling from the extensive list of festivals that occur in town – on top of the numerous shows and artists playing throughout the year – is the focus it puts on the artists and developing the music scene throughout the country. “Before Trondheim calling got started, everybody in the area kept saying that there is nothing new coming from Trondheim, there is no new music here anymore. But that was far from the truth,” said Wenche Sundt Bendixvold-Ryjord, one of the Trondheim Calling organizers, while discussing how the festival got its start. The first three days of February will see another, exciting edition of Trondheim Calling taking over the city. While the majority of festivals happen in the summer, Trondheim Calling stands out because it offers something to look forward to in the winter months, besides cross-country skiing, on these cold and dreary winter days. Trondheim Calling’s main mission is to promote Norwegian artists and to help fuel their careers, both at home and abroad. The festival puts a heavy emphasis on promoting local artists; around thirty of the artists 2018 / VOLUME 1

“More than 90% of the people who attend Trondheim Calling come to check out new music and new artists. They want to be able to say ‘I saw that band at their first show!’” —Wenche Sundt Bendixvold-Ryjord featured this year come from Trondheim or the Trøndelag region. The other artists all come from elsewhere in Norway, representing fjords and valleys across the land, from Oslo to Alta. For many of the artists Trondheim Calling represents a way to jumpstart their careers in music; for other established bands, its one more stop on their whirlwind trips around the globe. “Highasakite was a demo artist at the festival in 2011. They started here at Trondheim Calling, and now they are playing sold out shows all over the world,” Wenche mentioned. One way that Trondheim Calling is working to promote these local artists is through their mentor programme ‘Norway Calling’. Help and guidance from influential people in the music industry is provided to a group of demo artists. These five artists will have played their first live performance in the weeks leading up to the festival, and have since been given advice on everything from their music to their stage presence. They will debut on stage during the festival. This mentoring project will be an on-going aspect of Trondheim Calling, and will foster the next generation of musical talent in the region. “A lot of what will be played at Trondheim Calling is new music. The music and concert part of the festival is one thing, but there is also the business side of it with the conference,” explains Wenche, describing the mentoring aspect of Trondheim Calling. “We’ve had a number of artists that have played 16

their first shows here and then gone on to sign deals with massive music producers and achieve other great stuff.” The conference breaks down what it’s really like to work in the music industry. There will be numerous speakers ranging from established musicians, artists, and producers, to other industry professionals speaking on everything from marketing to the creative process of writing and making music. “We try to talk about important themes in the current music industry. About writing music and other parts of the creative process. For example, about creating music for movies, how to succeed internationally with Norwegian music, marketing your music, etc…,” said Wenche. This year Trondheim Calling boasts a lineup of more than eighty artists with a schedule of more than one hundred concerts. With such an extensive line-up, the amount of different types of music is staggering. “We have a lot of hip-hop this year, a lot of electronic music, rock, metal, hardcore, a lot of pop artists, doom, jazz, and we also have a few garage bands and others in the indie genre.” In order to accommodate such an eclectic and broad line up, Trondheim Calling will occupy a large chunk of the city. Twelve venues will host concerts, with opportunities to catch big-stage shows at Storsalen at Studentersamfundet, or find something more intimate at locations like Moskus, Diskoteket, and Fru Lundgreen. Vår Frue Kirke will also be having an open church on Saturday 2 February, giving the chance for everyone in Trondheim to enjoy some good tunes and company. Trondheim Calling is an amazing opportunity for the artists and the audience that will get to experience more than a fair share of concerts. When you’re attending a festival like Trondheim Calling there are many different ways to approach it. Of course, following the big name artists will lead to some outstanding performances. But looking around and being open to sampling something new can open up a whole new world of music to you. The List came up with five suggestions to start mapping out a path through this three-day music binge:

•• Young gun and local artist, 16-year-old Gerald Ofori is one rising star worth checking out. With soulful, synthy beats this artist mixes up an excellent combination of modern R&B with electronic elements. He has previously experimented with different types of music such as EDM and trap. The combination of his influences comes to form an original sound. Diskoteket, 2 February.Klubben, 3 February. •• Oslo rock group Rick Ashtray are no strangers to Trondheim. Having played a number of shows here in the past, including in 2016 when they featured as a demo artist at Trondheim Calling, they always bring their fun and varied style of rock. They also have impeccable choice when it comes to denim attire. Diskoteket, 3 February. •• Another Oslo group, Whales and This Lake have a really good handle on entertaining crowds with their pop-electronica. Over the past year Whales and This Lake have established themselves as one of the most exciting bands in Norway – playing dynamic and exciting shows. The band has seen a heavy rotation of their music on Norwegian radio stations, as well as appearing on several promoted playlists on Spotify. Check them out on the Friday at 22:00 at Kunsthallen or on the Saturday at Olavshallen Lille Sal at 21:30. •• Local heroes Haunted Mansions will be playing another concert in the city during Trondheim Calling. These masters of psych-pop have already started to gain international attention, and fans are eagerly awaiting the release of their first album this spring. Each concert they play is a musical adventure and extremely TRD CALLING PRICES 3-day 795 NOK + booking Thursday 275 NOK + booking Friday 375 NOK + booking Saturday 375 NOK + booking Conference Delegate Pass 1350 NOK Must Register by 12 January

enjoyable. Kunsthall Trondheim, 1 February. Olavshallen, 3 February. •• Steamdome is a sterling example of the more unique bands playing in February. This group of artists was hand-picked by Ola Kvernberg as a project for Moldejazz and Trondheim Jazz Festival in 2016. It has evolved into an exciting band and is releasing its first album at Trondheim Calling. Their music has been described with many colourful adjectives, but to put it simply: it is an experience. Byscenen, 1 February. If the thought of discovering amazing new music isn’t enough to motivate you to get out the door, perhaps you’ll be enticed by some of the other events taking place. Keep an eye out for some good nightlife, including record release parties, Q&A’s with some of the artists, and so much more. Passes for the festival can be bought in single or three-day varieties. Giving you access to any of the concerts and nightlife events happening during the festival. If the conference is of interest to you, registration for taking part also includes a three-day festival pass so you won’t miss a beat. Trondheim Calling is a unique and exciting festival. It offers something for everyone in town and is an easy way to make these dark winter days a little bit brighter. Join in and see some the countries favourite bands and come out the other side with a whole list of new favourites. � 2018 / VOLUME 1

THE MODERN MOBILITY CHALLENGE Changing the way we move across Trøndelag

The Mobility Challenge Words—Kristin Solhaug Næss Photography (unless otherwise stated)—Jennifer Wold Illusrator—Maj Helen Alander

It is no secret that our cities and, in some instances, our countries are getting overwhelmed by the populations living therein. It is also apparent to most that moving around in urban landscapes is an ever-increasing issue. How do we address this? City and Urban Planners alongside politicians, citizens and industry have had to work together to make solutions that work not only for the problems of the here and now, but put effort into making new models of transportation which will carry us smoothly into the future.

T

wo years after the Paris agreement signed, committing the world’s nations to battling our environmental challenges together, we see more construction of infrastructure than ever. Large road systems are being redesigned, new areas are being transformed, and there’s a lot of talk about this new Metro bus system that will be launched in Trondheim. The big question is; will the mobility of the people become better and more environmental friendly? Are we just designing more infrastructure for the dominant cars? Will the

2018 / VOL.1

environmental focus make it harder or easier for people in the Trondheim region to move around? Mobility, the way we are able to move ourselves around easily, is like an ecosystem, and largely dominated by cars since the 1950s. Ever since we started planning our cities for cars, cities became more and more difficult for people to move around in, making families dependant of the car as a main way of transportation. Urban planners in the 80’s even wanted to tear down the wood buildings of Bakklandet to make space for a new highway. Luckily for us, demonstrators 20

locked themselves to the city bridge to stop the plans. Today these visions are changing, focusing on the overall ecosystem of the city, such as where we need good solutions for walking, biking and driving alike. As the negative aspects of car use have become more and more obvious, the local and national governments are seeing they need to redesign the way we move. As an answer to the Paris agreement, the Norwegian government launched the zero-growth goal, stating that all growth in mobility should be done with public transport, cycling and walking. As the first city

in Norway to do this, the municipality of Trondheim signed the “bymiljøavtale” (city environmental agreement) with our government to commit to this goal. The bymiljøavtale states that the number of private car traffic should not increase, even if we are having more and more people living and coming into the city. To prevent this from not just being another bunch of words on paper, the Miljøpakken program was launched. Miljøpakken is a municipality run program which invests in environmentally friendly transportation and mobility in Trondheim. They are the doers, developing 21

hundreds of projects around the city, from the new bike lanes and bicycle racks to large road projects. It’s sponsored by the government and also through the fees you pay when you drive in and out of the city. One of the most discussed and debated Miljøpakken projects is the planning of the Metro Bus, first named Super Bus. These busses have been implemented and are in use in Bergen already. A big challenge in transportation is to tackle the growing need for smarter and faster transportation from the suburbs to the city centre. To answer this, the municipality is designing this Metro bus system to have its own designated lanes, a metro on wheels if you like. With an already packed transportation system, there are so many buses going through our city centre already, creating delays and traffic jams of buses. However, with these larger capacity busses and the new system of meeting points means other routes will be shorter and coordinate to meet the Metro Bus, thus fewer buses traveling through the city, yet still carrying the same passenger capacity. Larger cities often have metros or trams to offer a public transport system which are not affected by traffic jams, and the discussion regarding a metro in Trondheim has been around for decades. Therefore, the politicians in Trondheim decided to build a system that supported the possibility of an above ground metro as the answer. The Metro buses access to designated lanes the whole route will make it much more reliable than regular buses. Transporting people faster from Saupstad, Lade and Byåsen through our city, this could make it easier for most people to choose environmentally friendly transport. Combined with faster and more convenient transport by ferry and train, we are looking at a comprehensive solution. These days, Bane NOR (Norwegian Rail Infrastructure Agency) is planning to expand the northern railway into a two-line electrical railway. This will both shorten the travel distance from Steinkjær, and also give this part of the region more train departures every day. This will also allow for faster access to the airport as an added benefit. The environmentally friendly travel options also include the high-speed ferries taking you to Fosen, 2018 / VOL.1

being a better option to hiring a car. These upcoming changes means easier access to culture around the region and the nature around the city. Maybe you want to visit a local festival outside of the city, or take a trip along the fjord? Or you might live outside of Trondheim, always feeling that you are missing out on all the engaging events happening in the city centre. In short, if we are able to connect the fast-moving systems with the slower ones, making people more able to move around without the car, we are much closer to reaching the goals of zero growth. Zero growth also means sustainable densification, and having all of the big development around the city centre focused on the same challenge; how more people can live close to the city centre and the mobility nodes, with easy access to sustainable transportation. One of main goals from politicians’ states that we need to make it easy to live and travel environmental friendly in Trondheim. A lot of new city strategies will be developed the next couple of years, discussing how the central areas of Trondheim should be in the future. From the mobility perspective, these strategies also imply that if we are to meet the zero-growth goal, the hierarchy of mobility must be turned upside down. We need to put walking first when developing the central areas, to make sure we develop a human centred city. After all, a human friendly mobility system seems to be an environmental friendly one too. More focus on getting people around by foot also mean better access to activities and culture. A smoother city centre, faster buses to and from the nodes, more trains taking you north to south, more ferries taking you to the east. With all the different things to do in the Trondheim region, maybe you should try taking the high speed ferry the next time? Traffic and transportation are largely discussed issues, and a lot of people care about these things as they affect our daily routines so much. You see it in the heated discussions in the newspapers, the long comment sections in social media and in public debates. All these physical changes hopefully will give us better ecosystems of transportation. If we combine these changes with smart digital tools and engaging urban space around the nodes of transportation, we will find ourselves with a solution of today and tomorrow. But, it won`t happen overnight and patience in change will be needed. We all need to join in to move away from our car dominated reality. A fun way to join the discussions could be to take an active part in one of the mobility test projects going on. As transportation changes are time consuming and massively resource demanding. New approaches to testing good solutions up front, before a final decision is made and resources are spent, is needed.

Mobility Facts METROBUS What’s coming • 3. Aug 2019 the three new routes, M1, M2 and M3 will be launched alongside the completely overhauled bus route system. • M1 Route will be Lund/Kattem to Ranheim • M2 route will be Kattem/ Heimdal to Lade/Strindheim • M3 route will be Rydningen to Lohove In the Works • 130 bus stops being upgraded to accommodate the Metrobus and number of passengers waiting. • Eight new starting points • Six hub points for other routes to meet the Metrobus lines. Changes • There will be a reduction of stops along the Metrobus line from 100 to 70. This means shorter wait times along the routes. • Fewer busses passing through the city centre as passengers will transfer to the Metrobus from other lines. • A reduction in fare zones across Trøndelag to 13 which will be bigger, meaning passengers can travel further in the same fare zone.

becoming a two-lane street. To meet this, a test project launched this summer, with temporary bike lanes. Now, the same discussion goes for the Olav Tryggvasson street in the city centre. These tests can give important input on whether the changes work for the overall system or not. And they work best if people respond to them, making up their minds on whether the test was successful, commenting in social media, joining the public meetings or answering questionnaires about the projects. I think we can do even better, being a city full of innovative students and start-ups. Perhaps, engaging innovation contests on smart mobility, open to all the different design fields out there with bright ideas and perseverance to make a difference, could be a way to get interesting ideas on the table. The potential of innovative mobility solutions, both physical and digital, are enormous. What innovative projects would support and interact with our upcoming mobility system in Trondheim? How can we raise the bar? Make the travelling to and from Trondheim an even better experience? With innovation hubs like NTNU Accell, DIGS and Work-Work, a call for innovation shouldn`t be too hard.

The case for why this is important and that it is in everyone’s best interest these mobility systems are updated and changed has been laid out, not just here, but across the internet, news and through meetings. This cannot be solely the concern of city planners, politicians and infrastructure agencies. They are, of course, users of this system too, but if we all will be using it, we all need to get on board. Figuratively and literally. �

BUSSES There will be 56 new, 24-meter long “super busses” and around 40 will be electric. CYCLING AND WALKING What’s New • 50 km of testing asphalt and salting for ice and snow free winter cycling paths • Nov to March of 2016/2017 had per day 30,000 bike trips, the aim is to have 45,000+ during the 2017/2018 period with the better conditions UPCOMING A test period with the distance from Munkegata to Søndre gate on Olavtryggvasons gate will become a collective transport, cycling and walking only street.

Kosmorama Film Festival Around the world in 80 films!

Words—Bradley P. Kurtz Photography—Courtesy of Kosmorama

F

or fourteen years Kosmorama Film Festival has been bringing the international film world to Trondheim. This year the festival will be held from the 5th to the 11th of March and will showcase more than eighty films. There will be numerous opportunities to explore film through discussion and screenings, spend time with the family during KosmoKids, and, of course, check out the top-shelf selection of films from across the globe. “People love to travel. When I watch a movie from a different place, it’s a little like I have been there for the last two hours,” Silje Engeness of Kosmorama said. The festival takes on a special tone of celebration this year, as it also is the 100-year anniversary of Trondheim Kino. To commemorate the occasion, the festival will be held at Prinsens Kino this year bringing, even more, meaning to the words gilded on the front of the building: “Verdens Teateret” or “World’s Theatre”. In light of this celebration, one of the headlining films at Kosmorama is a very exciting local production. Director Magnus Skatvold and producer Dag Hoel in collaboration with Spætt Films have been working to create a film using archived footage of Trondheim. They sorted through piles of film that dated back as far as 1906 to create a visual experience of daily life in the city for the past century. The film will be shown with English subtitles and offers an amazing opportunity to obtain some more intimate knowledge of Trondheim. It is sure to astound viewers with how much and how little has changed. There are a ton of amazing films slated to screen during Kosmorama, and more are being added to the schedule every day. From Columbia to Japan and most places in-between Kosmorama promises to be the vehicle

for this trip around the world in 80 films! “We are an international festival, and that means we pick films from all over the world. I see this year we have many interesting films from South America, a couple of which have a co-producer from Trondheim (Dag Hoel). It can be a small world!” Kosmorama works hard to have so many nationalities, interests, and stories told. Everyone will find something that they recognize in the film schedule, and be able to explore an entire world of new films and ideas. “We will also have a couple of films focused on Kawaii which means something like cuteness in Japanese. So we have a number of films that will follow that as well as having a specialist on the phenomena coming in from Tokyo,” Silje said. Kosmokids will, of course, be occurring during Kosmorama this year. This section of the festival offers kid and family-friendly films and activities. The theme for Kosmokids 2018 is Dinosaurs! A number of old classics will be shown at Prinsens Kino. There is also an opportunity to learn more about dinosaurs in the collaboration with Vitenskapsmuseet 28

and their guest speaker: the renowned Norwegian paleontologist and advocate for science, Jørn Hurum. In 2009 he announced the acquisition and scientific description of a 47-million-year-old, almost complete skeleton of a primitive primate, Darwinius masillae, which had been in a private fossil collection for more than twenty years. Speaking of the museum…do not miss out on the chance to see “A Night at the Museum” on at night at the museum! Perhaps the most beloved aspect of Kosmorama Film Festival, Kulinarisk Kino or Culinary Film, will make another appearance in the 2018 edition. Sit back, relax, and enjoy some delicious food and drinks paired perfectly with a film set up on the silver screen. Dinner and movie is a classic combination, why not have them at the same time? During this edition of Kosmorama, one of the films for Kulinarisk Kino is the classic, Cinema Paradiso, which has its 30-year anniversary this year. Enjoy this classic film with a plate full of delicious Italian food and wine at Alma’s on Kongens Gate. For those looking to get more out of the

What to Watch? Acting as a cinematic travel agent, Silje Engeness has a couple of suggestions for films to catch during this year’s festival: A Hundred and Twenty Beats Per Minute In Paris in the early 1990s, a group of activists goes to battle for those stricken with HIV/AIDS, taking on sluggish government agencies and major pharmaceutical companies in bold, invasive actions. The organization is ACT UP, and its members, many of them gay and HIV-positive, embrace their mission with a literal lifeor-death urgency. Amid rallies, protests, fierce debates, and ecstatic dance parties is a portrayal a beautiful story about friendship, love, and the impact a community can have. Golden Dawn Girls “Whatever has happened to Greece?” wonders filmmaker Håvard Bustnes out loud at the start of this disturbing documentary. In recent years, its image as a country of sunny beaches and friendly people has been overshadowed by political ideologies that are terrifyingly close to Nazism. With many prominent members of the far-right Golden Dawn party now behind bars, a daughter, a wife and a mother continue to propagate its message—and all three of them are seasoned enough to avoid any slips of the tongue during interviews. But while they regularly stop the interview to make sure it went, as they want, Bustnes just leaves the camera running. The resulting material, supplemented with archive footage that leaves no room for doubt about the depraved side of this political party, reveals an ever-widening gulf between clear facts and political image making. While it’s frustrating that the women are so unbending in their views, it does illustrate how wearing blinders can derail an entire society.

film festival, there will be several opportunities to find out more about a film, a director, actor, writer, or whatever interest has been peaked through the festival. Saturday 10 March there will be a gathering at Studentersamfundet that will play host to Q&A’s, and discussions regarding the themes of some of the films. “I think that what is fun when you go to a festival is that they say in Forrest Gump you know: “Life is like a box of Chocolates” and you have to taste all you can,” says Engeness, “and of course what’s nice about a film festival is you are allowed to leave if you don’t like a movie. You can go out and pick something else to watch.” The staff at Kosmorama work hard to create an experience that is more than just going to the cinema; each of the films shown during the festival is handpicked by the educated eyes of Kosmorama’s organizers. It is a unique festival to Trondheim and provides a fun experience for film-buffs and casual moviegoers alike! �

Candelaria Havana, 1994. And at the height of the privations of Cuba’s ‘special period’, Candelaria (Veronica Lynn) and Victor Hugo (Alden Knight) are more focused on finding enough to eat and preserving their one remaining lightbulb than they are on each other. Although well into their seventies, the couple still toils every day for a pittance; Victor Hugo in a cigar factory, Candelaria in a hotel laundry and singing mournful laments in a jazz bar by night. Their lives change unexpectedly, and somewhat improbably when Candelaria finds a video camera caught up in the bedclothes of one of the hotel rooms. 29

Hoppy Collaborations Words—Gustav Foseid Photography—Torleif Kvinnesland

In a time when you are almost overwhelmed with new things constantly, how do you keep one of the oldest traditions fresh? If you talk to brewers of beer, they would say one fresh keg at a time. More than that, to work with others who can increase your skill, your outlook and your passion. Trondheim is the home to such an outward reaching brewery.

I

t is just under five years since Austmann brewed their first beer in Trolla. Today the brewery is among the leading Norwegian craft breweries, and you can find their beers in well stocked beer shops from Spain to Nordkapp, as well as at most Norwegian airports. In many ways, a surprising international success based on craftsmanship in a high-tech city. But craftsmanship is only part of the story, we should not forget creativity and many hours of hard labour. The beer scene in Trondheim is changing at a pace no onze would have believed a few years ago. When Austmann started brewing, beer in Trondheim was Dahls pilsner, or for the adventurous, a visit to the Mikrobryggeriet brew pub. Around the rest of Norway the first craft breweries had been established just a few years earlier. In the years since, Trondheim has seen a good handful of new breweries, and even the reputable E C Dahls brewery has reinvented themselves and are brewing a wider range of beers. Even though not all the start-up breweries have survived, Trondheim can still sport an impressive range of breweries. In all of this, Austmann has steadily grown to become one the largest and most respected breweries in Norway and is currently planning to expand their brewery and move to a larger building at Sluppen. When you visit Austmann, you quickly realize why this is such a successful brewery.

Even if day to day brewing is mostly an industrial activity, the dedication to giving the beer drinking bar patron the best possible beer is clear no matter who you speak to. They know beer, they know how to make it, and they are willing to go that extra mile to make sure the best possible pint is available at your favourite bar. The most visible example is in a closed off room in the corner of the brewery, where Austmann keeps their open fermenters. For a select few beers, they use old-style fermenters, even if they require more work, when they feel it will improve the beer style being brewed. Modern craft brewing is much about combining traditional beer styles with modern techniques and new ingredients or traditional ingredients used in untraditional ways. With Trøndelag being a region with a wide selection of quality ingredients and with the forest just outside the brewery door, this has also been defining in Austmann’s beers. A good example is the excellent Norsk Høst, a traditional English style old ale, spiced with bog myrtle and spruce saplings from the forests in Bymarka. The scarcity of the ingredients makes most of these beers hard to find, and very often just a one-off product, but when you find them, they provide a unique and very local tasting experience. Another way to brew up something new and exciting, is to collaborate with other breweries. Austmann is named after “eastern 31

men”, those who travelled east, and their logo is a compass rose. Perhaps it was inevitable that they would be the Norwegian brewery most well-known for collaborative brewing, and have released numerous brews under the label “I samme båt” (in the same boat). To some extent, a brewery is defined by who their friends are; who they invite into their brewery and where they are welcomed as guest brewers. There is no shortage of world class and well renown breweries, with names such as De Molen, Laugar, Kaapse and Brussels Beer Project, mixed with beloved Norwegian breweries, such as Lervig and 7 Fjell. “Collaboration brewing is really built on friendships that we establish throughout the brewing community,” says Vinko Sandelar from Austmann. Not only does he travel to breweries around the world to make collaborate brews, he is also a host for the guests coming to Trondheim to brew. If you follow the bars in Trondheim, you might spot a collaboration in the making, if you see a tap takeover or other events from a visiting brewery. For a beer lover, this a good opportunity to taste beers you normally would have to travel far to get a taste of. So, what happens when two breweries meet to share a boat, travelling in the direction of a new beer? As a drinker, you should expect to taste something interesting, with inspiration from both breweries. The best examples are excellent and surprising beers. For the brewers, it is a good opportunity to learn and experiment, and the marketing department can open up new markets. And that is part of the reason why you find Austmann beers all around Europe. “Both breweries want to shine, so we will try to highlight what both are good at the bring that through in the collaboration. It is really a team effort to come up with something fun,” Vinko continues enthusiastically. “Maybe we bring some Norwegian 2018 / VOL.1

ingredient, like seaweed, or cloudberries, to add a twist.” Asked to highlight an example, he points to “Them Apples!” a beer they brewed together with James Rylance at Redchurch Brewery from Bethnal Green in London, one of many new craft breweries bringing a new and modern approach to beers to the English market. For their wild and herbal beers, they have been foraging apples from parks in and around London as a local twist. Wild and sour ales is not something that works well with the open fermenters used by Austmann, but fruits also work well in beers inspired by Belgian farmhouse ale traditions. One such beer style is saison, a beer style many Norwegian beer drinkers will associate with Miss Saison from Austmann. The result is a deep golden beer, with a distinct aroma and aftertaste of apples. If there is one beer style that is more closely associated with craft breweries than any other, it is the India Pale Ale, or just IPA for short. Despite the name, this aromatic beer is an American invention in its modern form. Highlighting the floral, grassy and fruity aroma of hops, together with a distinct bitterness and a solid dose of alcohol, is the bestselling beers from most craft breweries. The combination of a hop aroma that is almost overpowering with a subtle balance of delicate flavours is difficult to master for a brewery, and adding to the difficulties is the fact that the aromas change very quickly after the beer has been packaged. The best-selling variety for Austmann is not an IPA, but another hop focused beer, Hoppy Blonde. Along with their low alcohol IPA it is packaged in cans to preserve aroma and flavour. Once associated with bland lagers, cans are increasingly used also by craft breweries as their preferred retail sales unit. “Cans are the best way for us to make sure our beer tastes the way we intended them to when you buy them,” explains Vinko, before he dives into the technical advantages of cans over bottles. Cans might be good at preserving aroma, but nothing beats getting your IPA as fresh as possible from a keg. The freshest IPAs in Norway are in the Box Fresh series, where tap lines are ready and waiting for a new IPA from Austmann once a month. It should 33

not be more than 48 hours from the beers leaves Trolla to the first pour from the kegs. Bringing high quality IPAs to the marked is important for Austmann, and they hope to expand their Box Fresh distribution when they open their new brewery next year. They have also made a Box Fresh collaboration with the prize-winning Melvin Brewing from Wyoming. Well known for their IPA, they were a perfect partner for their bold IPAs, thus the perfect partner for Austmann. Black, strong and sweet imperial stouts might not be the easiest drinkable beers around, but for the fans of these heavy beers there are few breweries that outshine De Molen from the Netherlands. Austmann counts their brewmaster Menno Olivier as both a good friend and a mentor. It was only natural that they have cooperated on several beers, with Mannus & Blodøks as the latest release, which is a barrel aged stout with complex notes of roasted malts and coffee. The name of the beer also points to the heritage of both breweries, as De Molen have named many of their beers with gloomy sounding double names, and Eirik Blodøks travelled east, as an Austmann. If anything, the collaboration beers made by Austmann points to them being a very likeable brewery. They not only brew with the rock stars of the brewing world, but have also collaborated with local homebrewers. “Koselig” is the word Anders Christensen, a local homebrewer, uses when asked to describe his collaboration with Austmann. He was brewing the stout Surrete Humle there a few years ago, and have only good things to say about the brewery. When looking at where the collaboration brew has been rated on various beer apps, a sudden “cool” escapes his lips when he discovers that the beer was served at the Kaapse brewpub in Rotterdam. “They were knowledgable and honest about the brewing process, and the beer turned out very good”, is his summary of the collaboration experience. With a new brewery opening next year, we can expect to see more beers from Austmann around Trondheim and the world. Collaborations will still be an important part of the portfolio, Vinko ensures us, so watch out for more exciting beers in stores and bars. � 2018 / VOL.1

INTERVIEW

Merger Mayor Words & Photography—Wil Lee-Wright

Tore O. Sandvik, Mayor for the new County of Trøndelag, sat down for a one-to-one with our Editor-in-Chief, Wil Lee-Wright, to discuss what the new merger means for Trøndelag. What made this the right time for the merger of Sør and Nord Trøndelag? First of all, it’s not the right time, it’s ‘overtime’; it should have been done years ago! The region was split in two nearly 214 years ago, in 1804, by King Christian VII of Denmark, who historians later said was insane. So when the region has been split apart by an insane king, it’s about time that sane politicians put it together again! The timing is right because we now have this reform going on all over Norway, starting with the merging of small municipalities. The intention is to redistribute some power from the national government and directorates, so that things can be decided regionally. You are therefore going to have bigger geographical (areas) and more people. Of course you could have achieved this by moving away from the regions, and only had municipalities, but they would never have been as big as a county, and never had the influence of a big region like Trøndelag. We want the retain the counties but they are too small: 19 counties in Norway is too many. No-one would have established 19 counties if they were doing it today. Probably they would have made 10 to 12, which is what we are now heading towards. We decided that if we were early movers in this the we could decide a lot. So the timing was crucial. The geography of the Trøndelag region did seem weird: Trondheim was almost on the border between the two old fylkeskommuner and was already the natural centre for the whole region de facto. Did this play a part in the decision? Well yes, you have ‘Trondheim Airport Værnes’ for example, which is in a different city, in a different county! One of the challenges will be to build a new culture and get to know the different parts of Trøndelag… Some of the politicians from the south for example do not know so much about the northern part of Trøndelag. And the same in the north: a lot of people think about the south being just Trondheim. We have become used to travelling in out of the two Trøndelag kommuner. When you drive through Fosen you would be heading north and 2018 / VOL.1

then suddenly re-enter South Trøndelag! Yes, the county of Trøndelag is in many ways a more natural region because we share the same values. We have the same identity. We cheer for the same football team! Ranheim? Haha, yes Ranheim, and Rosenborg… and Levanger! But also the structure of the industry is right for Trøndelag. A lot of industries and a lot of companies say it is more natural to be a geographical part of Trøndelag and not split apart. What reasons are there beyond the geography? I think the main reason for the merger is to be big enough to demand more. More power, more services and more chances to make decisions regionally. To move away from the directorate, which have a lot of power in Norway at the national level. For example, if the railway was regional, if we were making decisions on that locally, then we would have been electrifying it years ago. In 2010 when they moved a lot of roads down from the national level to the regional level, we started to build them immediately. The new road to Hitra-Frøya, where the aquaculture industry is big and there is a great demand for new roads. And also to Fosen. In a couple of years they will all be finished. Will this merger have a meaning for the discussions about tunnels and bridges to traverse the fjord? Not much because that was South to South Trøndelag anyway. But, we will have a bigger economy. We will have more muscle, so we can plan more, and do more, and do more innovation. We are planing to build the word’s first electric speedboat, ferrying people by electric battery-driven ferry to Vannvikan first, and later up to Orland and then HitraFrøya with a hydrogen boat. We will use our purchasing power to demand such solutions together with industry and together with the research institutes here in Trondheim. Also, we have the Trondheim fjord as a testbed for autonomous shipping. The same with the buses in Trondheim which will be fossil-free from 2019 when the new tender will start. It is the same also when we are building new school buildings, we are using 36

the same purchasing power to ask for more demanding, climate-friendly and environmentally-friendly solutions. We are building the new Heimdal secondary school, costing one billion kroner, and we are demanding it will be a ‘plus building’ (it will produce more energy than it consumes). And maybe we can then ask for building projects to use more wood? Which would then support the local tree industry, and make a market for the companies in the region, to build a competitive force to go out and market to other regions. You mentioned that the people of Trøndelag are a unified people. My wife comes from Rørvik in north North Trøndelag and they have a quite a strong identity up there in Vikna! What will this mean for people in the extremities of this new region? They will be part of this. They will part of this stronger muscle, which will bring more power to Trøndelag. So they will get more power and it will be a shorter way to ask for solutions and to ask for resources than going to Oslo, which is what they have to do now. Look, in the daily life no-one will feel a lot different. We will slowly become more ‘Trønder’ than ‘Nor Trønder’. The identity is stronger in Nord Trøndelag than in the south. You find very few people in Sør Trøndelag who say ‘I am Sør-Trønder’. But in the future we will all be more ‘trøndersk’. We’ve seen this reign work together before though haven’t we? There have been people working the region close together for a while. And that is part of the reason (for the merger). When we have this food festival in Trondheim it has always been Trøndersk, it has never been ‘Sør Trøndersk’.

It will be easier to come to conclusions in the processes when we are merged together as one instead of two counties first agreeing on each side.

PROFILE

Trude Nøst Words—Reagan Senyonjo Photography—Linda Kathrine Hogstad

So, who is our new Director of Regional Development (Næringssjef) for the new Trøndelag County? To start with she is interesting, engaged and active in areas from farming to eating delicious Lithuanian food and moving her feet to Zumba.

T

rude Nøst has a drive to unite the two old counties, better utilising our resource rich area in innovation, education and the wealth of fresh ideas from our students. Our contributor Reagan Senyonjo sat down with Trude for an interview to give the community more insight into who she is and what she intends to do in her new role. Before we talk business, who is Trude Nøst during her free time? Well, my job has me sitting in and going from meeting to meeting. Therefore, in my free time, I am either taking a walk in the nature or running, participating in power exercises or Zumba at the gym. And I love to read crime novels, but mostly it is trying to move my feet. Zumba sparks a thought of multi-culturalism. We have more people with diverse cultural background in Trondheim, how would you work towards their integration? Inviting people either to Dugnad (social volunteer work) or home is the way to go. On the small island where I live, Ytterøy, 140 out of the 500 inhabitants are from Lithuania. They work at the poultry fabric. The Lithuanians make very tasty food and invite us to dinner at the Rampa restaurant. It is a great way to meet. Even at Zumba we meet and workout together. Here in Trondheim it is happening more naturally than it is in the other districts. Festivals are also a great way to learn from each other and work together. What is one thing you always carry with you? I am never without lip balm. What is your colour: I am like Nemi – White skin and black clothes. Always black, but brown would be a better colour for me. What is your favourite season? I love winter and looking forward to the snow because I love cross country skiing. It has taken too long for the snow to come this year.

What is something you wish you had done, that you didn’t? I regret that I never studied outside Norway when I was young. I have a Masters in Agriculture Economics, plus a Masters in Leadership I earned in Denmark as an adult. What has your education led you to in your professional life? I have a very diverse work experience, and in many fields. Agriculture and farmers organisations, politics (local and regional), and I worked as director in the Levanger municipality for kindergartens and schools. Lengthy work experience vs. lengthy studies. What is your thoughts on this? Well, I was asked a similar question by my fifth-grade pupils in Levanger. I said that one should always have a childish curiosity inside themselves. Never stop asking questions. The world is rotating. No matter what field of work, be curious about people and the world around you so that you can learn new things and this you can build your career on. Your diverse working experience makes one think that you are the perfect person for this job. What field among these do think made you qualify most for your new forthcoming role? I have worked closely with, and I was a politician before. I am a strategic leader and my work previously will provide me insight into the different organisations I will be in constant contact with. We have had Trøndelag region split into North and South. What brought up the merge into a one whole Trøndelag region? The politicians want to make a stronger region, one that would compete with more strength both nationally and internationally in Europe. Bringing the south to the north was thought of as a good solution. The whole country will narrow down to about 10 provinces. What would this mean to the employees that have been working in the sub-regions? Will they lose their jobs? No, they will not lose jobs. In what is now Sør-Trøndelag, I work with a team of 30 and I have the same team in Nord-Trøndelag. It 39

means that we are going to work together in a larger but advanced work-environment utilizing their expertise better. The new system will create better corporation to have more community, national and international reach. In your first six months in office, what will you improve? The innovation system. I want to have incubators and businesses working closer together. We are already in contact with Toril Hernes at NTNU and the incubator leaders with regards to making this more efficient. I think this culture of innovation must spread to the whole of Trøndelag. We look at students as a great resource and I think it should be easier ways for them to travel outside of Trondheim across the region for work and research. Bureaucracy is one of the things that could limit innovation. If an idea is not grabbed immediately, then the region would lose it to Oslo or USA, what should be done to solve this challenge? We have over forty municipalities; our municipalities and businesses should open up their doors more for new ideas. We should look beyond our own experience or existing capacities. We will help them to take in students to extract and infuse their values and contributions into schools, health institutions and other offices. Help them to see and use this rich resource. The Trondheim municipality has been a leading municipality developing cooperation with competent students, other areas in the region must take advantage of this capacity. In speaking of bureaucracy, people are worried services will slow down. Is this a possibility? Fylkesrådmannen wants the business to be efficient. People are going to find that our digital solutions and our case-handling streamlined by 2023. It is clear that Nøst sees and embraces the changing world, and has a desire to take Trøndelag boldly into it. We would like to thank Trude for taking the time with us and we look forward to seeing her in action. � 2018 / VOL.1

Dream FAKTRY

Words—Wil Lee-Wright Photography—Torleif Kvinnesland

The List has kept a keen eye on the startup scene over the past few years.

T

he List has kept a keen eye on the startup scene over the past few years. In a recent edition of Tech List we took an overview of the coworking hubs which foster this ecosystem, and found there was an interesting trend towards the emergence of more specialised hubs. NTNU Accel’s latest collaboration continues this trend with the launch of FAKTRY, a new incubator for hardware startups. FAKTRY is a coworking space located in Sluppen. This is a joint venture between NTNU Accel and Kjeldsberg, with the latter putting up the newly renovated premises. Up to twelve startups will have offices there, with an event area, a maker space, and an electronics lab (funded by Telenor, run by Wireless Trondheim). But what about that ‘out-of-town’ location? Shared office spaces for startup businesses have traditionally been centrally located as part of their community based model. 2018 / VOL.1

Startups need to be visible and an accessible space is a prerequisite in most people’s books. When DIGS, the original innovator of Trondheim’s coworking economy, first started out they considered premises up on Festningen. It is hard to see how DIGS’ success story would have been achieved had they followed that dream and not found their downtown premises. So how does Kjeldsberg intend to recreate this success in an industrial suburb of Trondheim? “We’re not in the centre and we don’t want to compete with good initiatives like 40

DIGS and Work-Work downtown,” explains Kristine Bangstad Fredriksen, Head of Technology and Innovation at Kjeldsberg. “Instead, we thought about what is unique and about what we have to offer? Well, we have so much space here, for larger labs, a new maker space etc. The startups are our tenants and we also have an in interest in supporting their needs. We plan to use the space to (further) develop the maker space for example.” Kjeldsberg, located in Sluppen, have been actively redeveloping the area for some time.

A recent marketing campaign urged people to ‘choose the bus’, and there is a clear emphasis on green development and reducing the pressure of traffic heading into the city centre. “This area is actually very central!” claims Kristine, revealing Kjeldsberg’s bigger vision for the area. “As real estate developers, we want to give the companies (the startups) room to grow. We have a vision for the (Sluppen) area 35 years from today. The plan is to take the E6 road underground, from Kroppen Brua, so that the whole area could be developed, including housing down to the riverside. Project has been discussed with Trondheim Kommune and Statensvegvesen .” Kjeldsberg will not necessarily make money from the startups at FAKTRY (the project aims to break even, though the rents are subsidised and there is no obligation for the companies to utilise the real estate developer’s services as their businesses grow), but the incubator will bring attention to the area and give the Sluppen project a forward-thinking appeal. The same attitude is being applied to the arts: the building opposite has been used for the Arts Academy and FAKTRY itself is being painted with a big external mural by Julie Ebbing from Trondelag Utstilling. Another Kjeldsberg tennant, based next door to FAKTRY, is Seram Coatings. Their rapid development has been credited by the strength of their technology above all else. Many startup initiatives are launched because of their founders’ desire to be entrepreneurs. This is a boom and bust industry, whereas new businesses based on game-changing technology (like Seram) are destined to succeed with or without the helping hand of an incubator, such is the strength of their value proposition. There is therefore an interesting shift in the nature of the startup ecosystem in Trondheim, with greater focus being given to converting new technology in startups. In much the same way that start-ups are inspired by other success stories, FAKTRY aims to follow in the path of trailblazers DIGS and Work-Work. Whether or not the Sluppen dream will be fully realised remains to be seen, but one things is for sure; Trondheim’s horizon is broadening. �

Entertaining Trondheim Words—Jennifer Wold Photography—Wil Lee-Wright

Each musician in the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra has their own particular sound, and it is their conductor who fuses all the different techniques, styles, the cultural differences and the music into a performance. 2018 / VOL.1

A

n orchestra is a perfect example of human synchronicity and the harmony we can achieve when working together. For centuries orchestras have been thrilling audiences with their skilful interpretations of well-known classical pieces, producing unforgettable film scores and providing the background for beautiful theatre productions. Trondheim is lucky enough to have the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra (TSO). For a city this size, to have an orchestra of this quality is rare. Though if you speak to the musicians, the reason for having this superb cultural attraction starts in the environment 44

they work in. The first chair cellist, Dorran Alibaud puts it beautifully: “I have quite a lot of experience in Europe, but the word that comes to mind is family. It’s more of a Scandinavian thing, but here you are a part of a big family. Here I can focus on everything from in this bubble, a cocoon really. I take this feeling with me everywhere.” How has the orchestra been able to create this space, this cocoon? Twenty-year veteran of the ensemble, Peter Hatfield’s story give a glimpse. “They gave me a job 22 years ago, and I will always be grateful for that. What I love about it now is how much better of an orchestra it is. It was a good orchestra then, but the growth has been amazing. The standard

“This orchestra is famous for being one of the kindest orchestras in Scandinavia. It is strict, but so human and that is what strikes me first.” —Renata Kubala, violinist

is so high. As a musician, being here has widened my outlook. Although I think I had a wide outlook in the first place. It is a funny thing, it is an interesting thing, how the millennium celebration in 1997 opened the area in attitude. In 20 years, it has changed so much. There are so many possibilities from food culture to music. I think something similar has happened to the orchestra”. The TSO is a very physical representation of that as, there are 20 nations represented, 16 different languages spoken, and yet in the five ensemble members we spoke to, it was evident that music is the language that transcends the differences and creates this family atmosphere. 45

The annual calendar is filled with a fantastic variety of programmes from the annual New Year’s concert, to the Trondheim Soloists, Baroque Music festival and even an open house with a family concert in February. This is an orchestra for the people and they intend to continue being such through the variety they have. “We should ask the audience what they would like to hear. What is something that really means something to them?”, answered Cecilie Koch, cellist, “I am not sure what the best answer is, but we should continue doing analogue experiences, to collectively be together. Digital, like on an iPad, just isn’t the same.” In having such a varied schedule The Trondheim Symphony Orchestra (TSO) has taken on the ever-present challenge of being relevant, fresh and connected to the public’s heart. Especially when trying to find ways of engaging the newest generations with one of the oldest musical traditions when music education programmes are disappearing in many countries. Although Trondheim is lucky there as well, by having the Kulturskolen at Olavskvartalet for future generations of musicians to study. Having in their programme events such as film scores played live alongside films, video game scores, and the young soloist concert is certainly a way to do that as well. If you have never had the opportunity to go, or have not been in a while, take the time to check out the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra page at tso.no and treat yourself to a performance. � 2018 / VOL.1

AN INTERVIEW WITH

interview by Laura-Ann Morrison

How are you feeling? – A bit lost in between spaces, places and things to do. There are a lot of things going on, and not quite time to go into my creative bubble, as I am quite fond of when I’m working purely on my own things. That be paintings, murals, writings, drawings, concepts, whatever. Tell me about your latest projectMy latest project was a big asphalt painting on the docks of Trondheim. It was part of the city’s development plan for the area. The harbour is going to change a lot in the years to come, and a part of it is supposed to be an arena for art and culture. So, this was a part in highlighting the possibilities. I’m

very interested in how the city changes and develops, so I was very pleased to take part of this project. I have always loved the different shapes and forms on the docks at Nyhavna, I wanted to use them and make an abstract machine that produced a painting. So, the old use of the docks meets the new form. Since the canvas was grey asphalt, and the area is not the most colourful it was important for me to use a lot of colours, I normally use a lot of colours, but in this area, it felt even more important. The local newspaper said it was 490 square meters and posted a drone shot of it, it is safe to say that it is my biggest piece so far. What can we find in your studio/workshop? -

Spray cans, different paint in sharp colours, too much stuff that I never going to use, but can’t throw away, toys, signs, stuff from around the city. Planks and different wooden materials. Weird findings with colour. I’m a collector of things, and my studio is a mess. So, I work most at home at the moment. What does your colour palette look like? I like colours. A lot. Colours are awesome. I normally try to put to as many colours together as I can, but they need to be balanced, and I tend to fight a lot with my paintings over this. So, they are not always so bright and shiny, even if that was my intention. I like to find new odd colours schemes that in some way works with each other, even 47

though they are not a typical match. And I have colour crushes, now, that the autumn was just here, but the winter has arrived, I think I miss the great colours of the autumn, and now have a yellow period, where it feels like I’m fighting my own winter depression with my colours. But I also love to use a black flow pen, and pencils is also very nice, crayons, markers……. What impact has Trondheim, on your development as an artist? What does Trondheim give back to you? It’s a love/hate relationship. And it’s always going to be. I love Trondheim, but it can feel very small and caging at times. I like big cities where it’s easy to get lost. I love Oslo, but didn’t miss it very much when I moved to Copenhagen. I loved living in Copenhagen, but as the Norwegian I am, I eventually missed getting to some kind of mountain to get a view. And Copenhagen was also quite destructive after a while. I didn’t produce anything other than quite a lot of graffiti, which is nice, but I needed something more, ended up in Trondheim as I got a slot in an art class. And life moved on. Trondheim also has the kindest and most welcoming people of these cities. Where is your next destination? To travel? Or in the arts? I really want to go to the Amazons for a bunch of different reasons, to be in the land of the black panther, to be close to an area of still untouched tribes, to feel the jungle. And, to try out ayahuasca. I have long wanted to go there and try it, but after a friend said she saw creativity in 5D on her quest, I was convinced. How does creativity in 5D look like, how does that work? But, I guess my next destination will be Oppdal, where I often go to work, it’s the perfect place for me to create a bubble-space. Notes to self? Never get old. Upcoming exhibitions/projects? – If it was not for the freezing winter stopping the project, I would have been painting on a mural alongside my good friend and amazing artist: Julie Ebbing. And our universes will crash together in some hard-core new stuff. I am also part of a group that are close to be finalising a deal, which if it’s materialising, will be a nightclub that’s supposed to be very changeable. My part in this, is to make the club change appearance every day/weekend/month. So, I’m going to have a lot of fun in that space. Fingers crossed. And a couple of things that cannot to be talked about just now. � 2018 / VOL.1

It’s funny when I moved to Trondheim to study fine arts, I’d been told a lot that the almost non existing sun would effect me, and the frosty nights would chill my bones to the maw. I am happy to tell you, that it haven’t happened to me, and hopefully it won’t. It’s my birthday in february and I do not believe February is the month that it will happen, because I’d say Trondheim and its people are warming me up with their and cozy spirits.

might think; what is it? Well, of course it’s pencils, pens, paint, brushes, paint and maybe one or two empty bottles of wine somewhere in the mess. Tell me about your favourite colour: Red; the symbolic of that wavelength. It has a certain energy, and the color is packed with emotion which is like the north and south poles; like passion, intense love to anger and violence. The god from the Greek mythology, Cupid, and the Christian cunning devil. The color has so many different lovely properties, which I cannot stand for, it’s like a weird love relationship. I have a full red summer chilllax outfit for warm summers on the porch I call that outfit ” the red theme “ What brought you to Trondheim? And how has Trondheim been an impact on your process as an artist? Actually I have a great deal of fun when thinking back on my process and the different impacts, that cleared the path to the arts and the road to the academy. Two years back I was working in a supermarket and doing a basic art course back in Denmark, which was mostly in the name of paint and canvases. I was laughing about the idea of getting into an art academy, and focusing on a career as an artist. Summer 2016 I went to a Danish Højskole for fine arts. It was an amazing school, where we were 14 art students who lived together for a year and learned about contemporary art and art practices. Then around Christmas time, about to leave for Christmas holiday, my headmaster said;” Malakias, you are making something interesting; you should keep on working this spring semester. It will be good for you, to apply for the art academies”. So I did. I applied for Copenhagen, Malmö, Stockholm, Goteborg and Trondheim. To be honest I want to say; luckily I didn’t hear anything from Copenhagen, Malmö and Goteborg. I received a letter from Stockholm with the application number 714, which I was in for the “show your art” round, which 50 applicants was selected to. That’s another story. I got to the interview round and blacked out when I was sitting in the warm chair facing the professors. Worst 20 minutes of my life, and the only thing I remember from that day, was the trees outside had no leafs on them. When I walked out of the door, I believed that the chance to get into an art academy this year was over, dead, gone, bye! One week after that I got a letter from Trondheim academy of fine arts that I was in for the interview! A chance again to show my worth! Luckily I’m here, sitting in my studio chair with a smile on my face.

Who inspires you? My knowledge about the different artists around the world and in time is relative small, because I’m forgetting names really fast, so the ones which is stuck in my mind, is the ones that has some kind of inspiration to me or another word is probably, guidance. One of the sculptural masters of my perspective is Henry Moore, with his amazing massive bronze sculptures. The form of his sculptures whisper sweet words to my senses, and I shiver when I see his work. Richard Serra is my minimalistic dirty dream, a path that I would not start on, but I admire his work in D.I.A Beacon north of New York! If you ever see the metal circle 49

sculptures that he made, try to go around, in, maybe climb them while whistling; it will mark you. in a good way! I also think the Good ol’ Egon Schiele is my master of drawing. There’s a Danish painter who illuminates my world; is the infamous man that goes by name: Michael Kvium. The way he visualizes humanity of this century and over the past 20 years is utterly amazing! Three younger artists to look at also: Heine Klausen (DK), Michael Anderson (US) and Kirstine Roepstorff (DK). Notes to self? – “One drawing a day, keeps the doctor away”. Upcoming exhibitions? – I’m still working out my place here in Trondheim. With that I’m just starting a fire under the pot, ready to add the butter, meat and vegetables, making a proper meal for everyone to enjoy. At the moment I’m talking and befriending people from the music academy to inspire to an event i’d like to make. A good old collaboration. � 2018 / VOL.1

With 83 musicians and an impressive 115 concerts, the Trondheim Calling festival is opens the 1st of February this year, and will fill some of the most important venues in town, including Byscenen, Kunsthall Trondheim and Studentersamfundet. Trondheim Calling is an annual music festival and, importantly, a music conference. It has grown to be one of the biggest music industry events in the country. In February 2017, Trondheim Calling had more than 8000 spectators and 1000 delegates enjoying 115 shows spread out at 15 different venues, with 80 aspiring young artists from all across Norway.

head of booking and one of the curators of the artistic programme, when asked how the artists have been selected, says, “The first priority when picking artists for the festival - the factor that triumphs over everything else - is the music. The quality, originality, the talent behind it and how it’s relevant to today’s and tomorrow’s music scene, is what’s definitely most important. We do a lot of talking with people all over the country, people working in the music industry. In fact, we also try to represent different people and organizations in the music industry, as well as new artists.” The artists who are invited to perform at the festival, come from the whole Norway, and

In addition, he joined the list of Grammy winners in 2015 when the 57th Annual Grammy Awards when his remixed version of John Legend’s hit “All of Me”, landed him the Best Remixed Recording, NonClassical winner.

—Bradley P. Kurtz

The outspoken and, at time, controversial Australian comedian Jim Jefferies is bringing his Unusual Punishment Tour to Scandic Lerkendal. With him he brings is observational humour on political and cultural happenings; often taking shots at the lowing hanging fruit that is the United States and its idiosyncrasies. Yet he does this in a way that both entertains and challenges listeners to stop and think. Known for his previous stand-up work (particularly his bit about guns in America), his new talk shows The Jim Jefferies Show, and TV series programme Legit Jefferies has enjoyed a varied career in comedy. Jefferies first came into the spotlight during his set at the Manchester Comedy Store in 2007, since then he has made numerous appearances at comedy festivals and television programmes across the globe. Scandic Lerkendal on 12 January will be set to burst at the seams. This is a great chance to hear live one of the funniest men on the planet! �

Kosmorama Film Festival —Julie Refseth

Do you love movies and consider yourself a film enthusiast? Then you should check out Trondheim’s international film festival, Kosmorama. During the week-long event, you can experience both Norwegian and international films. The festival was arranged for the first time in 2005. Kosmorama has become very successful throughout the last few years and is the biggest film festival in mid-Norway. Many great films are produced and made every year, but unfortunately not all these films are shown at the cinema or being talked about much. That’s why it is so important to have a film festival like Kosmorama where you get to see and discuss a variety of films from around the world. The festival aims to

strengthen the film industry with a focus on films from mid-Norway. Each year, 60-80 movies from around the world are picked out to be a part of the festival with considerations towards what could be of interest for a wider audience. There will be other things going on during the week of the festival so you should keep an eye out at kosmorama. no or their Facebook page for updates and information. The programme for the festival is usually released on their website in February, but you can buy a festival pass before the programme is released. If you do love films and want to meet likeminded people, as well as keep up to date on what’s going on within the independent film industry, then Kosmorama is a festival you should not miss. �

Femundløpet 2018 —Jennifer Wold

Since 1989, the dedicated sled dog community in Røros has organized this long-distance race that starts on the historic UNESCO Heritage town on Kirkegata, with 180 sledding teams heading off into the night. The race tracks through eight municipalities and two provinces during the race. This is not a race for the timid; the main race is 6oo km through some of the toughest terrain, with temps that can reach -40C, and conditions that can leave the trail in a complete whiteout condition. There is no doubt that dog sledding is a dangerous sport; supporting these athletes are 700 volunteers, working round the clock, over the distance of the course to make sure that there are safety points, veterinary care, food pickup points and that all the drivers have the support they need to cross the finish line.

Because this race is so challenging, drivers must meet certain qualifications and have certain courses to assure they can meet the demands of the terrain. Those new to this course can only qualify for the 600km race in five other races from across the globe; the famous Iditarod being one of them, as an example of the skill needed to complete this race. Each year there is a 400km race, which can qualify new drivers for next year’s 600km, and a youth 200km race. Spectators can show their support along the course and, of course, at the start and the finish line welcoming the teams safely home. If you have never been to a dog sledding event, this is something you should not miss. Check their website at femundlopet.no for details on the schedule of events and how to volunteer. �

The spring is always a time for fresh, fun and bringing a bit more life to, well, life! Spring musicals have always been a popular way to get a bounce in your step and something fun to whistle while you work. Speleman på taket, or Fiddler on the Roof, is one of the world’s most known and loved musicals. Even if you don’t know all the words to If I Were a Rich Man, more than likely you do know the first lines or at least can hum the tune.

It’s that time of year again, to dust off the denim vest and white sailor cap to join the Turbojugend at Studentersamfundet 16 February. Whenever the punk legends Turbonegro come to town, it is always an event to remember. The legend of Turbonegro stretches back to the close of the 1980’s. But the past couple of years have seen the band back in the saddle, crisscrossing the globe to the delight of new and old fans; played at packed venues from LA to Ålesund, Melbourne to Manchester and every point in between. Their music is a combination of every strain of punk rock to create a heady mixture of what they call “deathpunk”. Storsalen just might be big enough to contain Turbonegro’s, and the crowds, energy during this highlight concert. Be prepared for a raucous evening as the performances on stage and off tend to be spectacular. �

Jimmy Carr is trying something new in the comedy world; a tour of his greatest hits. It was his opinion that if bands can go on tour and play their greatest hits, why can’t a comedian? Of course, he has new material to share along the way. Carr’s humour is not always politically correct, but his intelligence and quick wit, and very distinct chortle, have left audiences laughing for the last 15 years. He is often seen as a guest on many comedy shows in the UK, has been the host of his own show Would I Lie To You, and held more than 2,000 stand-up shows across the globe. His shows almost always sell out before the date, so this is something you are going to want to book your tickets well in advance for. �

In the shadow of terror. A dialogue with Hans-Peter Feldmann and Håkon Bleken “Kaos has moved closer, we will be even more unsafe. This will probably affect us even more than the time we first saw the big bang over Hiroshima.” This stated author Øystein Salary to the NRK one week after the major terrorist action against the United States on 11 September 2001. The assault forms the basis of Hans-Peter Feldmann’s iconic work 9/12 Frontpage, 2001. Composed of international newspaper pages from the day after the action, the work shows the many different ways the media chose to cover the events, from scanty notes to apocalyptic headlines.

De kom til oss Tvangsevakueringen av Finnmark og Nord-Troms In an attempt to stop the advancing Soviet soldiers, the Germans decided to burn and destroy everything. The people in the north had to leave, their homes were put on fire and the people forced on board boats that would lead them south. In Trondheim, the management was ready to receive the people who were on their way. The action came in the wake of the war in East Finnmark and the Allies’ warning that all ships in Norwegian waters had to expect to be attacked. This is the story of what happened.

Kamelen is not like everyone else. He was snapped up by a conversation topic when he released his debut album and after his arrest after an appearance in 2015. In the following year and a half, he has spent in prison, where he used the time to write songs, train and record music while at the same time making up for himself. If he is totally rehabilitated, the album “Ambivalent” is the preliminary result and contains 11 hard-hitting and catchy tunes about a chaotic life characterized by major criminal aspirations and even greater social deviations.

Norwayʼs new pop-favorite presents a tour of her native country. There are not many other Norwegian or foreign artists who have as much radiance and pop magic as Dagny. This, along with her single “Backbeat”, has her breaking across the borders of the international music scene.

COMPLIMENTS TO THE CHEF

Habitat A Fusion of Flavours

02

In this section, we challenge one of our Food and Drink chefs to create a recipe which reflects the magazine’s theme and/or season. While this is not a chef, we think you’ll indulge us this time around as we give you inspiration from our favourite Habitat pizzas and their unique fusion of tastes.

S 03

2018 / VOL.1

ince Habitat’s start, the idea was to serve pizza you could not get anywhere in the city. Pizza doesn’t have to be just cheese, onions, paprika and ground beef. Today, even diehard pizza purists are putting things on top of their favourite dish that one wouldn’t assume belonged there. Take Habitat’s two of the most popular pizzas right now; God Jul and Pizza for President. These are both very different and delicious. God Jul, although a Christmas special, is unique in its toppings: Crème Fraiche, goat cheese, red current chutney, mutton and rosemary seems like a very odd combination. However, the savoury mutton (fenalår) with the sweet, warm chutney makes this spectacular. For those who don’t eat meet or dairy? The secret really is in the sauce and toppings. Pizza For President has beetroot pesto sauce, and although it has dairy, one could take inspiration from Living On The Veg: kebab style ‘seitan’ (a wheat protein), cashew tzatziki and arugula top this vegan pizza. Perhaps you might try some dried figs, prosciutto, goat cheese, mozzarella and a drizzle of honey. Or, spicy red lentil puree, curry chicken, pineapple, red onion, cashew parmesan and a bit of coconut shavings? Pizza is a forgiving dish that can take a lot of experimentation. Try fusing elements of the cuisine you love best, and see what happens. Bon Appétit! � 76

The final touches. A fenalår and red currant chutney pizza. 03. Living On The Veg ... it's all vegan. 01. 02.
