About the project:
"Å Finne Stemmen" (Finding One's Voice) is a collection of texts and images tragicomically describing what it was to integrate and learn Norwegian as a creative, non-white immigrant. Also included in the book is an “association game" she made, played by 10 participants, all living in Norway but coming from places ranging from Sweden and Germany to Ethiopia and Jordan.
