NORDTING by Amund Sjølie Sveen

NORDTING is a Ting for the North;
a mobile governing assembly,
a northern party,
a separatist movement for the arctic colony.

– The very first session of NORDTING was held in Harstad, as opening of the Artctic Arts Festival (Festspillene i Nord-Norge) 2014, opened by Norwegian Minister of Culture, Thorhild Widvey.

– The second NORDTING consisted of 300 students at Hammerfest high school in 2015, gathered together in the shadow of the gas flare at Statoil´s Melkøya Terminal.

– The third NORDTING included the whole of the Barents Region; an extended Northern Assembly, arranged on the Norwegian-Russian border in Kirkenes during Barents Spektakel 2017.

– The fourth NORDTING will be held in Tromsø – the arctic capitol; 11 assemblies during the spring of 2017 – in cooperation with Hålogaland teater.
