Scandinavian Somali Scene



Global Stories


One of the most marginalized ethnic groups in Denmark are the Somalis. Global Stories now wants to nuance our conception of Somalis and give upcoming Scandinavian-Somali artists a voice to be heard on the Danish art scene. SOMALI TALENTS is a reading consisting of texts created at the Somali Storytelling Academy Workshop, which Global Stories held in Copenhagen in 2015 and in Malmö and Oslo in 2017. The young Scandinavian-Somalis worked intensely with the ability to express themselves on artistic terms while getting feedback from Danish, Swedish and Norwegian artists. Supported by Projektstøtteudvalget for Scenekunst, Danish Arts Council and Open Society Foundation
