About the Horisont Foundation

Horisont Foundation is a self-governing foundation whose strategies aim at achieving a greater participation by minorities in Norwegian cultural life – both as performers, producers, administrators and not the least as a participating audience in everyday cultural life.

Cultural exchange with countries from which most minorities in Norway have come is a means to achieve such a participation. The presentation of diverse art expressions in venues such as festivals is being used to create common grounds where the majority and the minority may meet on equal terms.

The following are among the main objectives of Horsont Foundation:

To raise awareness about the ever-increasing cultural diversity;

- to stimulate dialogue with the new minorities’ art and culture which is becoming a part of mainstream life;

- to develop new methods and skills to enhance the post-colonial exchange of art and cultures between North and South and to present it by innovative means which are challenging prejudices; and

- to challenge traditional art institutions in order to make them more inclusive of the minorities’ arts.
