CALLING UPON ALL QAQORTO'NIAN ACTIVE AGENTS ... CALLING

It all began at the beach. Didn’t it? Whether it was in Cali’ or Sisimiut, Greenland. This summer, active board member and local hero Nukaaka Fontain Berthelsen, will grind the beats off olie’s and zero degree architeXture down in the south - Qaqortoq.

The project: get down to it and share the action with Nukaaka. Action means practice! Pick up the board and engage in adaptive play. Get guidance and play back with your skills. Sharing is caring. All voluntary.

This year, apart from Urban Street Camp in Sisimiut, NGO Urban Greenland is proud to spin off SK8-Empowerment: peer to peer network to South Greenland. On the eve of continuing Nukaakas*education at Campus Kujalleq, four complete Globe boards will spread the spirit of skateboarding. However “unusual subjects of interest” in the Arctic, sk8 is precisely what enables NGO Urban Greenland to sustain their mission of improving living conditions for children and young people in Greenland. In everyday life & voluntary spaces.


The 2015 Globe sponsorship for SK8 Empowerment Qaqortoq, is a direct outreach from the photo project Inuit Now by Lasse Bak Mejlvang and Dennis Lehmann (http://inuit.nu/publications).


 



*Nukaaka F. Berthelsen, 26y, is currently a student at Campus Kujalleq and active member at NGO Urban Greenland – sports, knowledge & community since 2012.
