TrAP is an independent arts production company. Our aim is to increase diversity within Norwegian arts and culture. TrAP works with artists and projects that cross borders and brings international contemporary art to the Norwegian art scene. We work with arts in various disciplines, including visual and performing arts, film and literature.
This year we mark the 20th anniversary of the first, major production by the DSV Network, TrAPs predecessor. We are going back to the beginning, to take a closer look at the long-term effects of the work to increase diversity. How has the Norwegian cultural scene changed in our organization’s life-time? Where do we stand now?
