RED REFUGEE ROUTE/
Den røde flyktningeruta
North Cultitude 6263
Panter Tanter Production, charged by Berit
Rusten, is working on an art event on the
train trip from Trondheim to Östersund
May 26-29th 2016. The artistic ambition
and focus is based on what happened
along this railway line during 2nd World
War when resisting groups worked against
the nazi occupation. The work has been
underminded and nearly forgotten.
The work of Panter Tanters has reinforced
the recognition of their effort and sacrifice.
There will be different stops and stagings
on the railway stations during the journey.
The public wil be invited as participants
This project aim to create new opportunities and projects for arts and
cultural workers, and reach out to a broad public in general.
The network will hopefully be created throughout activities, sessions,
meetings and internet.
The long term goal is to showcase the arts/cultural activities at latitudes
and create biennials, festivals and international activities. This work is
currently enhanced by anchoring and active proliferation.
The project has a 10 year perspective.
