As organizers, our responsibility is to create the arena, then event participants – NGO’s, businesses, political parties, the media and others - create the content which makes Arendalsuka. In 2021 – 954 organizers produced 1165 events and there were 134 exhibition stands in the centre of Arendal.
As organizers we also produce the main programme in Arendalsuka, approx. 35-40 events taking place in Arendal town hall and culture house or in the square of ‘Kanalplassen’.
Anyone is invited to suggest themes of interest to the main committee, with a deadline of December 1st for the upcoming year.
Arendalsuka Ung (for children and youth)
The word "ung" means ‘young’, or ‘youth’, in Norwegian, and Arendalsuka Ung is a natural part of our democracy week. The Arendalsuka Ung programme is also produced mainly by Arendalsuka and consists of several events for children and youth from the age of 4 to 19 years, all with the purpose of promoting involvement and participation in our society. Anyone is welcome to host an event for Arendalsuka Ung, please contact us for further information.
There is a variety of cultural events during the week, such as concerts, plays and other types of performances.
