On 13 September, artists, academics, entrepreneurs and individuals working in the public sector and civil society came together to discuss the different stories that are told about diversity in Norway today.
The intention was to increase our awareness about how different stories about diversity, belonging and participation impact individuals and their agency. Through a series of practical workshops, the Conference created room for visions, alternative stories and actions related to these themes.
By creating an arena for a diverse group of people to come together, connect and exchange tools, the Conference aimed to increase the participants' ability to contribute to a more inclusive and humane debate about diversity, belonging and participation that affects all residents in Norway, irrespective of age, gender, sexual orientation, religion, migration background, educational background, political standpoint or where they live.
The Roundtable Conference 'Fortellinger om Mangfold' ('Storytelling about Diversity') is a collaboration between PRIO and the Red Cross, funded by the Research Council of Norway.
