”A Magical World, Far Up North, Out to the left  And How The Helvete To Get There? ”

Right at the Arctic Circle, furthest out, some hours from the mainland in northern Norway lays a small island community. It’s called Træna and is populated by 456 people. It’s tricky as helvete to get there.

But once a year, the island increases its population 10 times. This happens thanks to the music event, Trænafestivalen, listed by the Guardian as one of the most exotic festivals in Europe. They also have an Artist in Residence programme (read here and a personal story here).

In a world where the norm is urban, it might seem strange to move to a remote, poorly populated island. Moa Björnson, a Swedish kaospilot, lived and worked with urban innovation processes in Malmö, but decided to change geography in 2015 and start as Head of Development in Norway’s third smallest municipality.


Moa will talk about how tiny places far away from everything can be in the lead of innovative thinking and doing.
