Our Arts programme in Norway currently focuses on constitutional and human rights and the freedom of expression for all.
We aim to
- Help unravel uncomfortable issues through the arts
- Build international and tri-lateral links between arts organisations, experts and content providers in different countries
- Help local arts organisations to diversify arts audiences
British Council is involved in arts projects which empower audiences to explore at times uncomfortable issues and untangle the many misunderstandings and presumptions through the arts, often using documentary forms (film, texts, literature, visual and performing arts).
UK is a leader in many aspects of running arts organisations. In addition to UK experts, speakers and artists, we provide capacity building for our strategic partners. Equal opportunity and diversity, access and inclusiveness, and audience building are just some of these.
