Documentary film making workshop was held at the Blue Bank recently. Film maker Trude Ottersen from Koko Film and film consultant Ingrid Dokka from the North Norwegian Film Centre came from Tromso in north Norway to teach and guide. 16 participants attended, some with film projects to work on while others attended as observers. The ones with film projects got some valuable advise, comments and input into their work, enabling them to continue on their journey towards a fully produced documentary film. The observers got a chance to brainstorm on their own ideas and get comments on a future project.
The enjoyment level was high and hopefully this was just the beginning of a long and fruitful cooperation between the Blue Bank and Icelandic and north Norwegian film makers.
The Bluebank was awarded a special recognition for Innovation in Public Service and Administration.

SANDRA DE CLERCQ trainer and a master in Organizational Psychology conducts a workshop on Enneagram, a neutral psychological model for personal growth, 13 – 16 November in the Bluebank. During this workshop you will discover the nine defense mechanisms that people automatically adapt since birth. You will gain consciousness about your own basic fears and desires and will understand why you keep doing the same thing, even when you realise this is not always the best answer given the situation. You will understand that we all have a subjective view on reality and that it is impossible for us to know the truth. Once we see this, we take a lot of annoying behavior of other persons no longer personal. We start realizing it is not about us… that we are all just suffering and defending ourselves in our own way and that there is a way out once we become conscious.
