200th anniversary

On 20 March 2028, it will be 200 years since Henrik Ibsen was born in Skien.

This is an occasion that Skien naturally intends to mark! We want to play a major role in commemorating Ibsen’s 200th anniversary. At the time of writing, we have made an application to the National Library of Norway, which has overall responsibility for anniversaries of nationally important writers.

The Ibsen Library is one of our projects for the 200th anniversary.
