Collaborating with artists
We have collaborated with music venues, festivals, artists and promoters to get photo permits and access to artists while in Norway. The response has been incredible well, and in less than a year several hundred images of artists has been added til Commons. The artists are often of international interest, and the result of the project have reach far outside of the Norwegian community. The project will continue in the summer with many of the outdoor music festivals.
