KRAFT is our norwegian translation of the project name CUPIDO – Culture Power: Inspire to Develop Rural Areas. CUPIDO is an Interreg North Sea Region project, lasting from September 2018 till June 2021.

Nome Municipality and the University of South-Eastern Norway (USN) are participating in this project along with 14 partners from six other countries around the North Sea. What we have in common is an aging population and lack of jobs. The goal is to lift forward culture as a driver in local & regional development policies and to explore its potential.

We who work on the project in Nome are project manager Marit Svalastog and trainee Maren Sofie Sandbakk. On this blog we will show what we do and who we meet. People who have made things happen, people who want to make things happen, and what happens in the project. Do you or anyone you know have a business idea related to culture? Do you have the idea, but don’t quite know where to start? Do you wish you could work with someone on an idea? Maybe KRAFT can help you along the way.
