INNAFØRR? is a new series of conversations based on this year's theme - Who is allowed to tell the story? The conversations take place in an intimate environment at Støperiet where participants raise questions that have to do with storytelling, their own and/or in a bigger perspective. Questions about what types of stories it is important to tell, who has the right to tell the stories and are there stories you should not tell? The participants are selected based on similarities or differences between them that appear to be interesting to highlight.
