NEW BOOK OUT NOW!

Cross-Cultural-Kids_Fotokreditering-Gyld

CROSS CULTURAL KIDS.

FOR THOSE GROWING UP ACROSS CULTURES

Have you moved between countries? Did you, your parents or your grandparents migrate from another place? Perhaps you have roots within a national minority group, or were adopted from a different country. Maybe your parents have different nationalites or religions. 

 

This book is for you. 

A childhood across cultures  and societies can create confusion about identity. It can drive insecurity, rootlessness, and accumulate many questions. Who are you? Where do you belong? Where are others like you? Why are people so invested in finding out where you are really from? 

A cross-cultural childhood also provides many important skills and strengths. The wisdom that you carry and the knowledge that you have are assets which are sought and needed. Your perspectives and experiences are valuable both locally and globally. 

This book is only available in Norwegian. More information on an English translation to come!

They say back and forth is just as far. Sometimes going back is further.

Cross Cultural Kids

It doesn´t help to know the National Anthem of Zimbabwe when your task is to remember the lyrics to "Over the hills and far away". It won´t be of much use to have cricket skills when your mission is to ski. Just remember that the same things that give you "cultural holes" are the same things that give you "cultural wealth".

How will you preserve, develop

and use your superpowers?

I want to tell some different stories, to come in from another angle, to expand our understanding of normality. Everyone should be able to recognise themselves and their lives in the narratives, images and perspectives that surround them.
