Collaborative designing of the digital installation "The Sound of FOLK".

From the autumn of 2016 until spring 2020 a collaborative partnership has been established with youths from 16 to 19 years, a cross professional team at NTM, an external museum researcher from Oslo Met, university students and children aged 10-13. All in all, 22 people have been involved in this qualitative study of a co-design process.

The first series of co-design workshops led to the production of a sound-based installation, The Sound of FOLK  as part of the FOLK exhibition.
