The corona crisis has shaken all kind of systems and structures, the economic structure, the education of all ages and of course the health and social systems. Norwegian society is now beginning to open up and the feeling of crisis is less intense these days. It is therefore time to stop and do a deep dive into our body and soul to explore the inner landscapes. Are there new personal or collective discoveries to be heard?
In this livetalk I am inviting 4 guests to participate in sharing their personal reflections and professional reactions. Psychiatrist Finn Skårderud, Actress and activist Iselin Shumba, directrice of documentary Nefise Øzkal Lorentzen and a former diplomat and lawyer Michael Rummelhoff.
The conversations are in english to help us keep an international perspective. I have also invited some artists from the “underground scene» here in Oslo, to help us to stay in touch with our body and soul during the event.
