A familiar and well-liked face in NAPA has left the office. Communications Officer Bula Larsen has moved to Denmark after working in the Secretariat since 2019.
Malik Brøns will now oversee communication in NAPA. He was born and raised in Nuuk and has a professional bachelor’s degree in journalism from Ilisimatusarfik. He comes from a job in KNR’s news department, where he was a journalist and editor for three years.
Working for KNR, Malik Brøns has covered the arrival of coronavirus in Greenland, Donald Trump’s infamous offer to buy Greenland and other social topics.
– It has been three good years in KNR, where I have developed a lot. Now I’m looking forward to working at NAPA”, says Malik Brøns.
Malik will work with our internal and external communications and write news for our social media and website.
– It can be news about projects supported by NAPA. Or exciting Nordic initiatives that may be relevant to children and young people but also more experienced art and cultural operators. Through the cultural support programme, NAPA can help promote Greenlandic art and culture so that it is seen and recognised in the rest of the Nordic region, and that is something we do with great pride,” says Acting Director Nina Paninnguaq S. Kristiansen.
– In the past few years, there has been an increasing interest in Greenlandic perspectives. I would like to help the projects that NAPA supports reach a wider audience. That is why I am very much looking forward to working with the promotion of Greenlandic art and culture to the rest of the Nordic region,” says Malik Brøns.
In his spare time, Malik likes to play football. When he’s at home, he sometimes plays with friends online. Chess is also something that fills Malik’s heart, and he gets happy when someone invites him for a game or two.
