An anthology about and by Afro-Nordic performers that will shed light on the experiences of the community in the Nordic region and contribute to the public discourse on the subject.
Afro-Nordic Perspectives on Performance intends to look at African and diaspora artists in the Nordic region by reaching beyond Nordic exceptionalism. These insights will benefit the fields of art and culture in the Nordic region by creating and strengthening networks, promoting practical-theoretical discourse across the Nordic region and creating a historical record of Afro-Nordic presence in the region. The project will thus benefit the entire field by opening up perspectives and narratives.
Through its critical and reinterpretative perspective, the project questions and broadens the boundaries of what it means to be Nordic. The project is grounded in a wide range of relevant actors and is assessed to have a major impact on the performing arts in the Nordic region.
