Well blown Winter Party at the Museum

27 March 2022

Well blown Winter Party at the Museum! After two years of cancellations, Winter Festival Week in Narvik was finally held. 160 schoolchildren were given a tour of the museum.

For many people, it is tradition to take the annual trip to Narvik Museum in Vinterfestuka, and this year was no exception. At the museum, guests have been allowed to visit the ore locomotive El. 12, and the opportunity to refresh and learn new things about its local history. 160 kindergarten children and schoolchildren were given a tour of the museum, and most sang for full throat in the motor vehicle of “Toget” with Groms Plass.

The personal injury association LTN Ofoten disked up with café on weekends. On the second floor we have had visits from sales exhibitors.

One of the highlights of the year was undoubtedly VU artist Lotta Lampa from Kalix in Sweden. Lampa’s art is described as aesthetic challenging, refers to both postmodernism and raggar culture, and balanced with the tranquility and nature of Norrbotten.

Her design process consists of simple lines, humor and inspiration from the car garage. The objects are sketched quickly and large, preferably directly in the material. The production is then done by hand in close cooperation with his father and brother. Lampa creates sustainable craftsmanship, where origin, cooperation and community are important and highly valued.

We can reveal that Lotta Lampa’s art will stay at the museum for a while longer.

If you are not out of the VU bubble properly yet, we can recommend a time travel in teams with Steingrim Sneve back to Rombaksbotn during the construction period in the podcast Dispatched:
