Holding: Culture Minister Anette Trettebergstuen has now asked the NIPH and the Norwegian Directorate of Health to explore the possibility of introducing the Corona certificate at cultural events, and hopes that the impatient Norwegian cultural life will be answered next week.

Minister of Culture Anette Trettebergstuen insists that the Department of Culture should be more patient, although many are not happy about the easing of national restrictions.


After a government press conference on Thursday, Carianne Jagger made it clear in her speech at Stage Evenings, the house producer of Folketeteret in Oslo: “Was angry”.

– The Minister of Culture talked about relief, but we did not see it that way. There is a great deal of pessimism that cultural life is being severely affected for the third time by epidemic control measures based on ensuring that the capacity of hospitals is observed. But it is precisely the job of the government, not the Kultur-Norges, to be precise, said Karianne Jæger.

The number of spectators at the designated venues for cultural events increased to 200, according to the measures presented at the government press conference on Thursday.

This does not apply to large concerts and theaters such as Focettideret.

– Stage evenings are a privately owned workplace for more than 350 artists annually in the field of culture. The Folketeatret consists of a 1402-seat hall. We have no more than 200 people in the hall. We are still closed. Jagger told Vijay that we have not had a chance to play for so few.

Culture Minister Anette Trettebergstuen writes in an email to VG, “He is well aware that Folketeatret and other actors in the cultural arena with large arenas are distrustful after two years due to distant needs and changing numerical restrictions. Ratings should come next week, priority yesterday.” .

– At the same time, we are clear that we give priority to children and youth first, and the measures put forward by the government yesterday reflect the same. It’s not about whether Folketeatret’s events are particularly contagious, but about the movement in society in general, the recession, which is all the way around, Trettbergstuen writes.

He also reminded that the government provides compensation to those who have to reduce the amount and cancel.

– Stage garlands have so far received over NOK 100 million from cultural projects. Trettebergstein believes that the compensation plan and stimulus plan and the strengthening of established policy tools and other corona programs will have a positive impact on the industry.

He stressed that he and the government should listen to the advice of health professionals, but now there is room to facilitate some action.

– Therefore, the number of events was expanded from 50 to 200 persons. However, one of the clear signals from the Norwegian Directorate of Health and the Norwegian Institute of Public Health is that brakes should also be used to prevent the unjustified vertical spread of infection. The Minister of Culture writes in his email that it is not possible to open everything at once.

Several major artist organizations have now announced a demonstration in front of Storting on Wednesday.

At the same time, Anette Trettebergstuen hopes that the NIPH and the Norwegian Directorate of Health will take clear corrective action, asking the government to return quickly by varying the number of visitors according to new estimates and room size for the use of corona certificates.

– We hope that the government will present measures already adjusted next week, writes the Minister of Culture.

Rhiannon Hovden Edwards, industry director at Virke kultur og Experiences, understands that their members are always tired of being rotten.

– They lose the audience, the audience loses them! After two years of unpredictability, late arrival and unorganized support programs, slow litigation processing time and insecurity for life’s work and jobs, he says frustration is high.

Rhiannon Hovden Edwards added, “It is disappointing that the authorities are not convinced that companies that make a living by getting the public safe every day of the year can come up with a good plan to prevent the epidemic. Private campus.”

– Now we demand speed at work with Corona certification. We hope that we will be included in the design of the new rules that apply and that the authorities will now show more confidence in the field of culture, ”he says.
