'We're delighted to continue our stimulating collaboration with the University of Bergen and in particular with the new Kunst, Musikk & Design faculty. The symposium highlights the breadth and depth of socially engaged arts and demonstrates how we can engage with communities and work creatively in the wider social sphere. It's inspiring to see such innovative and cutting edge interdisciplinary work as an example of how musicians and artists of different genres work today and the resistance against the excesses of the art market. Festspillene i Bergen is committed to providing inclusive, inspiring and challenging cultural experiences for all residents of Bergen and we were proud to launch our dedicated community programme, Festspillkollektivet, last year,' says Festival director Anders Beyer.
