For the bank DNB, it is important to collaborate with Norway’s cultural community, sports and selected organisations. Bergen International Festival keeps the classical culture tradition alive while also having the courage to challenge conventions. As Norway’s biggest financial group, DNB wishes to play an active part in society, both at the local and national level.
Culture is at the core of Equinor’s Heroes of Tomorrow talent development programme. Equinor aims to help promote Norwegian culture through contributions to organisations, individuals and institutions. Equinor wants to create and provide arenas for young talents, and offer training both with mentors and ambassadors. A common denominator for this initiative is bringing to the fore people capable of and willing to think outside the box, and with the necessary skills and perseverance to work hard to deliver excellent results.
Bergens Tidendes' mission is to contribute to the development of Bergen and Western Norway; characterised by tolerance, creativity, and a strong faith in a better tomorrow.
For 150 years we’ve been working to involve and engage our readers beyond the written word, and a significant part of this is advancing Bergen’s position as an internationally celebrated hub for culture.
We are a proud sponsor of Festspillene not only because Bergens cultural scene is of great importance for those of us who live here, but also in our strong belief that culture is far more than entertainment; it is a vehicle for understanding our society and a potential trailblazer in debates.
During this year's extraordinary festival, Bergens Tidende shares a selection of concerts from the digital festival programme on bt.no.
