On the agenda was an update on the work that has been going on with the SKREI project since the opening of Hurtigrutemuseet, where Raja, then Minister of Culture revealed that SKREI would be granted state funding.

As part of the visit, there was also time for a fishing trip with the historic wooden fishing vessel Anne Bro. We appreciate Raja’s sustained enthusiasm and faith in SKREI!
