Janne Robberstad

Welcome to my site! I work as an eco-designer, an artist, as a teacher and as a researcher, and creating, or ARTING as I prefer, makes me happy! This is both a portfolio of things I´ve made and a blog meant to inspire.

A real-life researcher

Tuesday, January 28th, 2020

Hello. My name is Janne, and I´m a researcher. The past years, as the market for new-built offshore vessels have gone down, and the shuffeling of jobs in the theatre-section has led to less (paid) artistic work for me, I have gone back to my “roots”. Taking all my experience and knowledge both from the artistic […]

GSSO4SCHOOL

GSO4SCHOOL is the Global Science Opera teacher training project. (Click logo to get to website). The main aim of the project is to propose an innovative transdisciplinary method to motivate school students and teachers to participate in science and arts initiatives and to develop and establish a network that will work together, exchange practices and maintain […]

CASE

Tuesday, January 28th, 2020

CASE stands for “Creativity, Arts and Science in Education”. (Click logo to get to website). The CASE project relies on an understanding that scientific inquiry must be known more as an integral part of daily life and less as a faraway myth occurring in isolated institutions. In our increasingly knowledge-based economy, education systems need the […]

Gravity!

Wednesday, November 20th, 2019

The Global Science Opera premiers today with its 5th opera: Gravity! It is a celebration of the 100th anniversary of Eddington´s effort to acquire solid scientific support for Einstein´s Theory of General Relativity. He sent two expeditions to Sobral in Brazil and Principe in Sao Tome & Principe in Western Africa, where they would photograph […]

GSO4SCHOOL

The kick-off meeting for our newest research-project: GSO4SCHOOL. In collaboration with partners from Greece, Portugal, Italy and Cyprus, and funded by the EU, this Erasmus+ project will train teachers in the GSO methodology and STEAM education.

A little Gravity is a big deal!

Wednesday, May 29th, 2019

May 29th is THE day to celebrate Eddington and Einstein. It´s the 100th aniversary for Eddington´s solar eclipse expeditions, that proved Eisntein´s theory to be more precise than Newtons on gravity. It resulted in instant world fame and a Nobel-prize in physics for Einstein, now known as the father of spacetime and the Theory of […]

Porto SPACE conference

Saturday, March 30th, 2019

The final international conference for the SPACE-project, including lectures and workshops. I always learn so much at these. This time I came directly from the US, and was jet-lagged and got a cold on the plane (of course), but still enjoyed it. Since a couple of the speakers had to cancel last minute, I was […]

Workshops in Porto

Monday, February 4th, 2019

Never too late to try something new, right? Like teaching composition-workshops to music-students!! I had kick-off session explaining what the GSO was, and challenged them to make the composition for the trailer for Gravity. Together with their amazing teacher, Oscar, they did it! I also held an eco-design workshop with the teachers, challenging them to […]

Sao Tome & Principe

Sunday, February 3rd, 2019

Paradise. The most beautiful place I think I´ve ever been. With such beautiful and interesting people. Certainly one of the greenest. Both literally and metaphorically speaking. A small island-state, quite autonomous, ins West-Africa. Only 7500 inhabitants. That´s less than Bømlo! The rich nature was overwhelmingly beautiful. It was hot and humid and rich and green […]

One Ocean

Friday, December 21st, 2018

This year´s Global Science Opera is all about the ocean, sustainability and climate change. Click on the poster and the fish will take you to the opera: It´s the first production that has been my responsibility as production manager, and I am quite proud of the result. 18 countries participated this year (+10 in New […]
