Norwegian schools of thought - Images of the world and self-images in the 2000s

Is Norway among the best in the world both at facilitating peace and at participating in war in other countries? Do the public and leadership have a plan for dealing with terrorism, refugee crises, the administration of mass immigration and the preservation of the welfare state?

These questions are discussed by Jonas Gahr Støre, Torbjørn Røe Isaksen, Cathrine Holst and Terje Tvedt, with Tvedt's work on the history of ideas in Norway as the point of departure.

The Fritt Ord Foundation invites applications for the programme 'Quality Journalism in a New Era'. Up to 10 MNOK will be awarded annually in 2016 and 2017.

For quite some time, the Fritt Ord Foundation has had media and journalism as one of its core target areas. In the current demanding situation being experienced by the media and thereby by the general public as a whole, we want to do even more to pave the way for and support critical, meaningful high-quality journalism in several fields.

Applications are processed continuously throughout the year. Deadlines can be found here.
Fritt Ord Foundation and KORO - Public Art Norway / URO invite to the conference PUBLIC CALLING, at the National Theatre in Oslo, Norway.

In an era of austerity politics, securitized spaces, extrastate dominions, and distributed online networks, the notion of the public is increasingly in question if not crisis. For the conference Public Calling, both speakers and audience will find themselves together on stage, examining contemporary intersections of space and speech in order to test how the public can still be enacted today.

Free and open to all.
Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd November, 2016. 10.00–16.00

Limited seating.
Registration: publiccalling@frittord.no

Utlysning: Den gode kritikken 2016

The Fritt Ord Foundation announces a call for applications for 10 annual grants of NOK 200 000 each for critics who write for daily or weekly newspapers, or who supply reviews to TV/radio. The grant scheme will provide aggregate funding of MNOK 6 over a three-year period.

The grants are available to critics who work in any field of art or culture. The grants are intended to result in the production of concrete, ongoing reviews throughout the year; the goal is to improve the level of quality and professionalisation for a number of Norwegian critics each year. The Fritt Ord Foundation would like to give more critics better opportunities to pursue their profession and to spend more time on it. The grants are intended to be in addition to other revenue streams from reviews.

Application deadline: Friday 20 May 2016 at 3 p.m.
