Meeting on the Western Front during the Festival of St. Olaf

Sherin Khankan/The Festival of St Olaf
The Festival of St. Olaf in Trondheim will be held from 28 July to 5 August 2017. Fritt Ord has allocated support for the ‘Meeting on the Western Front’, which is actually a series of meetings to be held daily during the festival.

For example, on Opening Day (28 July 2017 at 3 p.m.), Erik Hillestad will talk about the theme of this year's festival, "Idol". On 30 July at 3 p.m., Sherin Khankan, Denmark's first female imam, will deliver a lecture entitled "The future of Islam is a woman". On Tuesday, 1 August at 1 p.m., Åsne Seierstad, Father Alexi and Jan Egeland will take part in an event entitled "Who can save Syria?". See the entire programme on The Festival of St. Olaf's website.
