The theme for the ENTRE DEBAT LIVE 4 is ‘Artists in Partnerships’. What happens when the artists work for purposes that points to broader artistry in partnership with others?

We have invited three talented persons to talk about this Friday the 26th of November. The panel discussion is followed by a conversation salon facilitated by Christina Holm Dahl from the Danish National Academy of Music. Here, we will continue the conversation based on the role as an educator at an art school. 

ENTRE DEBAT LIVE 4 takes place at the Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus in room 228. Sign up by sending an email to

OBS: the live stream of the event has been cancelled, but the conversation will be released as podcast.

Kristian Lager is a conservatory graduate guitar player and middle school music teacher. He is also the program cordinator for ‘Kultur og Sundhedsplan’ in Aarhus commune. At his work, Kristian works e.g. with the Culture and Health pool, which shall be used to engage as many as possible of the citizens of Aarhus commune, who with the help of culture can get a boost of their health and well-being. At the event for ENTRE DEBAT will be asking Kristian which meetings he has with the artists and which artistry are interesting for him to meet in his work as a program coordinator. Does his placement call for a position as a kind of translator between the institution and the artists, or how does he experience his work with the Culture and Health Pool?

Ninna Morsing trained as a classical percussionist at the Royal Academy of Music in 2020. She wrote her master’s thesis about music at the intensive care units at Aarhus University Hospital with Margrete Langer Bro as her supervisor. She has carried on the thesis further in her art, i.a. when she plays concerts in the children’s department at AUH. We will talk with Ninna about what it takes to make her art available for other purposes, the extent to which she has been prepared for it during her education, and what she thinks it takes if the art schools are to support the students getting dressed for this kind of collaborations and partnerships.

A part of Ninna’s work is currently unfolding in ‘Ninna’s Orchestra’, which with the children’s concert “The Story of the 4 Elements” tours Denmark through the program Levende Musik i Skolen. In the latest issue of Part of Ninna’s work is currently unfolding in “Ninna’s Orchestra”, which with the children’s concert “The Story of the 4 Elements” tours Denmark through the program Live Music in School. In the latest issue of MUSIKEREN you can read an article about Ninna’s work.




As an educator, researchers or students at an art school we must ask ourselves what quality and relevance are in the artistic practice and company, and how this positions itself in relation to the outside world.


To support and develop these reflections we have invited a number of interlocutors who are in various ways in contact with the artistic educations and the cultural sector more broadly, to discuss the issue of external relations in the artistry and artistic enterprise. ENTRE DEBAT LIVE is part of the entre program, which supports the development of entrepreneurship as a field of knowledge in higher artistic education.


Send us your name, which art school are associated with as well as whether you are joining IRL or online.
