More than five years ago, Hanna von Bergen and I, Christina (who runs Lysløypa), met at a cafe to chat about freelancing. Hanna said, "I've been thinking for a while that it would be cool to create a podcast for freelancers, so we can learn from each other." I was immediately thrilled, went home, and brainstormed ideas, and that was it! That's how Frilanslivet (aka “Freelance Life”) started – a podcast for everyone working for themselves in the media, art, and culture industry.
Starting a project involves a lot of hard work. One needs financing, one needs to block out already limited time and one needs to keep on going when the going gets tough. Because we know all this - after several years as freelancers and “project initiators” and after having produced 170 podcast episodes about this stuff - we have started offering courses. In-person courses are mostly held in Oslo (ex. 3-day crash course, or a full-day seminar on how to apply for grants for cultural projects – you can use your discount code on those too), but perhaps we’ll come to Bergen, and we are filling our website with digital resources and then; a book! Get on our newsletter to stay in the loop!
So, if you are a freelancer, a free spirit, weathering storms, headwinds, tailwinds, and the occasional gentle breeze – welcome home!
The discount can’t be combined with other discounts.
