Musical meeting at Nesodden

Artist of the month at Nesoddparken Kunst- og Kulturnæringssenter is Elisabeth Engebretsen, textile artist and Ida Helene Heidel, composer and musician. On Sunday, December 2, the exhibition opening, a concert and the inauguration of two sound installations will take place, spiced with poetry readings and an unorthodox twist on spiritual guidance. Caveat emptor…
