The Latin American groups
16:00 - 17:30
In May, the Landless Movement in Brazil (MST) received six activists from Norway on a solidarity brigade through the Latin American groups. This is a long-term exchange project between social movements in Norway and Latin America. MST, as one of the world's largest social movements, fights for the right to land and access to healthy food for all. The activists will give an insight into what they have learned about the current political struggles in Brazil. They will also include the festival participants in an activist workshop inspired by the collectives Linhas de Sampa and Coletivo Transverso.

Tales of queer gods
23:00 - 00:00
Queers have been part of society at all times and in all places. What happens if we try to read the old Norse myths with queer glasses? Norse myths are full of stories about gods and others who break the norms of gender and sexuality. Just think about how Sleipner came to be. Did Tor manage to pass as Frøya? What's the deal with queerness, seid and magic? We meet Thor, who dresses in wedding clothes, Jotun women with little interest in men, cunning Loki who slips in and out of gender and taboos and Allfather himself, Odin, who wanders around as a woman and engages in seid. What could the stories have meant in their time? And how do we read and understand these texts today, in the light of philosophy and social development? Between literature, religion and philosophy, this becomes a quirky look at well-known stories and characters, with the opportunity for further conversation and reflection.
