"This year's cultural award recipient has been a prominent cultural voice in the region for 30 years. Diligence, zeal, professionalism, responsibility and the ability to never give up are a hallmark of this year's cultural award recipient." "It is important for the candidate that we in the north, ourselves, are allowed to tell our stories from our own areas, which spring from a strong border identity and belonging among Sami, Norwegians, Kvens, Finns and Russians. "
We are insanely happy, proud and touched! Thank you. Here you can read the entire speech in Norwegian: https://www.tffk.no/.../ibc1105fc.../tale-kulturpris.pdf
