Bodø is the European Capital of Culture 2024 - AND YOU CAN STATE YOUR OPINION!

As an important part of the evaluation of Bodø2024, we will establish a People’s Jury consisting of a representative sample of the population in Bodø and Nordland.

That’s why we invite you to join the People’s Jury – regardless of whether you think Bodø2024 is a fantastic opportunity to promote cultural life in Bodø and Nordland, or whether you think it’s a waste of money.

As a member of this jury, you will be asked to answer 2–3 short questionnaires per year from now until the end of the Bodø2024 project. Each form takes a maximum of 10 minutes to answer. Regardless of whether you are for or against the project, by participating in the people’s jury you will be able to influence the content of Bodø2024 and help assess whether the project will be a success or a failure.

Become a member of the People's Jury!

Everyone who participates in the People’s Jury will be sent updated information before others and enter a draw for free tickets to Bodø2024 events!

What does it mean for you to be part of the People's Jury?

We will process your personal data confidentially and in accordance with data protection legislation (the General Data Protection Regulation and the Personal Data Act).

To protect any sensitive data to the greatest extent possible, we use the storage solution TSD (Service for Sensitive Data) at the University of Oslo. This service can be used to handle sensitive data. This is to ensure that your data remains in a secure environment that can only be accessed by selected members of our research team. TSD codes and encrypts your information automatically, which means that information is anonymised as soon as it is registered in the system.

Participants in the jury of residents will be anonymous and not recognisable in publications.

The project is scheduled to end in 2025. We will store collected data in an anonymised form to allow for potential follow-up studies and other future research.

Any participation is, of course, voluntary. It is possible to withdraw from the panel at any time and without stating a reason for this decision by sending an e-mail to:
