Welcome to the official opening of the GaiaDrøv exhibition and the second prototype of the Vesterål map model!

GaiaDrøv is a unique exhibition about the role of the sheep in arctic environments, focusing on Vesterålen and the north of Norway. The exhibition is especially directed at older children, but also adults will find the exhibition fun and interesting.

The exhibition shows us how the sheep are important agents of sustainability in the north. The purpose of GaiaDrøv is to build interest in agriculture, and increase recruitment to the field. We want to create farm joy!

Collaborators: NIBIO, Deadline Media, Arktisk Kompetansesenter for Sau, Museum Nord, The farmer circles in Vesterålen, Sortland Museum.
Show period: 15. juni – 31. oktober.
