Legend Gathering

Legend gathering
– go on adventures to collect stories.

In the summer of 2012, Georgiana Keable set out on a long trip in Lofoten, Senja and Vesterålen. On the trip, she knocked on the door of people’s homes and asked ‘Do you have a story for me?’ Just as Peter Asbjørnsen did 200 years earlier.

This was something she had wanted to do for a long time. To find out if there were still many stories among the Norwegian population that were undiscovered. Stories about nature, about how humans have managed to cooperate with the elements over time, about brave fishermen, about the real Huldra or about how people are feeling right now. But did she get any stories? You can read about that on her blog

And you can listen to the program on NRK here
