Sor-Trondelag musikkrad is working mostly with music education to youth and adult learners, mostly non-formal learning in groups of volunteers in many different fields: choirs, bands, folk music groups etc. We also give courses to vulnerable groups, groups with special needs, and one of our projects is “Music in prison and Freedom”. Music in Prisons and Freedom is committed to continuing to raise the profile of the arts as a positive and necessary part of the rehabilitation process. The individuals we work with are some of the most socially disadvantaged and excluded, having faced a range of issues such as abuse, violence, drug abuse, mental health problems, exclusion from school and homelessness. By allowing prisoners the freedom to create and perform music, Music in Prisons raises their life aspirations, enabling them to play a positive role in their communities. By providing individuals with the chance to develop new skills, both musical and personal, Music in Prisons gives them the chance to leave prison with more than just the stigma of having been there. Other organizations within art, culture and handicraft. In this project we will cooperate with another organization too, who gives courses and create activities like workshops in handicrafts from old days, using old technics and so on. We believe in developing different artistic methods in learning activities, to learn and find new methods, to get new ideas, and to learn good practice from other providers who are working with cultural activities and marginal groups. We develop activities in collaboration with the botanical garden. The plants are vibrant collections used for research, education and conservation of endangered plants. At the same time conveys garden knowledge of the botanical diversity and the importance of plants to humans and animals. The plants in the botanical garden are therefore both exhibitions and scientific collections.

Music and landscape

In Norway we have steep mountains creating deep and narrow valleys, and more open landscapes like Rørosvidda. These natural surroundings influence the style and rhythm of the dancing and the music. This video shows the participants of the final project gathering in Trondheim learning how to dance “the Røros way” before visiting the old mining town Røros.

The accompanying folk music group usually play various tunes from different parts of the country just to illustrate how landscape is expressed through the beat and air of the traditional tunes.
