Tromsø is known to be an inclusive and open city with a large international community. We want this to also characterize the cultural life of the city. TrAP and the municipality of Tromsø wish to promote more artistic diversity both in cultural institutions and amongst other established practitioners. Therefore, we will work to strengthen the local festivals, cultural institutions and other arenas for culture. We want to create more activity with international groups, local associations and individuals who work to increase cultural diversity in order to become more relevant for the groups who rarely attend cultural events.

Nasra Omar will lead the project. We would like to find out what Tromsø-dwellers have in common across different backgrounds and we want to hear their ideas for activities that will bring the city's population together. The project will support local activities that stimulate curiosity, and that lowers the bar for participation. Activities can for example be developed and presented in a collaborative process with the audience. It is important that activities can be the start of new collaborations. Some events may be repeated, developed further or adapted for a new location. 

Our aim is to create new meeting places for people of all ages and backgrounds - and contribute to a more cultural and more inclusive city.
