In 2018 I was granted a 2-year Work Grant from the Norwegian Government Grants for Artists.
Government Grants for Artists serve to secure diverse and innovative arts activity by providing stipends for individual artists. The grants are awarded on the basis of artistic quality and activity.24 selection commitees, with 123 member appointed by artists' organizations, evaluate the applications, and approxamately 1-3 percent of the applications to Work Grants are granted.
I was awarded the grant to write a play about Free Speech.
The grant is 31000 US Dollars each year.
