40 % of the pupils in Oslo have an immigrant

background

• What can they find out about

the first generation

• Who can they identify with

Oslo City Archives – the city’s

memory… but:

• Where are the immigrants own

voices we asked in 2004

• 330 registered ethnic and

multicultural organizations in

Oslo

• Which traces of their activities

will be preserved here in 100

years (awareness: if you don’t

leave a trace…)

The ”Oslo Multicultural Archives Project”

- motto: Everyone has the right to a past!

(Edvard Bull, Norwegian historian)

• The “Oslo Multicultural Archives Project” was an

attempt to obtain a more representative societal

memory.

• The purpose of the project was to collect, preserve and make

available a number of key archives from new minorities in Oslo.

• The aim was that Oslo City's cultural diversity

should thus become part of the city's memory

and could be used in our outreach work.

– The project period March 2004 – 2007.

– Funding by The Norwegian Archive, Library and

Museum Authority, Arts Council Norway and

The Fritt Ord Foundation

Follow-up: Multiple voices – minority women in

organizational life

• Women’s organizations often

have a shorter history.

• Documentation is found on the

Internet and in social media

• Their activities are often

primarily networking & social

activities.

• It is therefore important to

interview some of these

women.

• Together with The MiRA

Centre, Oslo City Archives

established a project where we

interviewed leading women in

immigrant communities (8

edited in a book)

• Funding: Arts Council Norway

and The Fritt Ord Foundation
