Music, images and poetry in the project ’Kom med – det gror i Nord’
Kom med – det gror i Nord (Come along – it grows in the North) researches nordic identity, culture and history through creative learning processes. The project group has developed songs, art and poetry of their countries and the Nordics in collaboration with pupils and teachers during school visits.
A learning material that helps pupils to inspect their own country in relation to other Nordic countries has been created within the project. The material helps pupils to reflect on what is important and special in their own lives, as well as in those of other children in the Nordics. The pedagogic material is now available on the webpage Norden i skolan (in Nordic languages only).
The project has been granted funding from Volt – the language and culture programme for children and young people up to the age of 25. The programme supports projects that raise interest in art, culture, and languages in other Nordic countries and areas. The project Kom med – det gror i Nord has been realised in cooperation by the nordic musicians Lone Wernblad (DK), Peter Wemö (SE), Bergur Fonsdal Johannesen (FO) and Benjamin Aggerbæk (DK).
