Bobbi Lo Produktion

"The support from NAPA made it possible for us to bring our dance performance "Noget lidt anderledes" on a tour in Greenland. We visited Sisimiut, Ilulissat, Uummanaq, Paamiut, Nuuk and Kulusuk and met children from the age of 6-9 years. What we appreciate even more than the grant from NAPA is the support we received from the staff at NAPA. They believed in the project and involved themselves emotionally and we are extremely grateful for this!"

Hans-Ole Amossen, musician and sound technician from Nuuk​

“I have benefited greatly from NAPA’s support during my education as a sound technician and musician. I have travelled the Nordic region and met many people.”

Sound of the Damned, metal band from Nuuk
