We have already got a lot of exciting things, says Gunn Westad, the head of FAU.

Nannestad Culture School organizes a tour in the U.S. for some of the students this summer.
The Culture School is 45 years old and it should be celebrated. There will be students from 13 to 19 years old and from all professions going on this trip. “We will attend the Nordic Fest in Decorah, the Norwegian Church in Minneapolis, and several other places”,- says Ellinor Lauritzen, the principal of Doylestown Culture.


Rybak will travel with the students from Nannestad to the US, and take part in the concerts in Decorah at the Nordic Fest.
– He will perform with us at the shows. We are in the process of planning with Alexander. He is excited about going on tour with us. Although he has many other concerts and tours next summer,- Lauritzen says. – It is seldom you meet an artist who cares so much about kids as he does.


At the flea market Saturday and Sunday there will be lots of exciting things.
– There will be a lot of “fleas” like furniture, clothing, toys, bicycles, skis, vinyl records, books, ornaments and trinkets,
yes everything, we even sell cakes, Lauritzen said. The Culture School students, who will be part of the U.S. tour, entertain both Saturday and Sunday. Lots of nice fleas have already been received.

Students and parents together have taken this as a major volunteering event. They have provided info tags in mailboxes, collected fleas, and stored and exhibited in the hall at the council house, the headmaster said. The leader of FAU, Gunn Westad, helped out with receiving fleas last week.
We have already received loads of incredibly nice things, but we want more. Appliances, we unfortunately can not accept,- Westad says.
– If someone wants to provide fleas to us and support the FAU and their student’s Culture Tour to the United States, they can deliver the fleas on Thursday or Friday at the backside of the council house.

  1. Finally! I can’t wait! It’s been too long, I was already thinking about flying over seas to see you in concert. It’s a great thing you’re doing working with kids Alex, you’re leaving a lasting impact on their lives, God bless you for that. Can’t wait to see more of your work 🙂
