Linda Forss and band performs, Hymn to her/The earth worm

Linda Forss is a creative community builder, taking action on a variety of arenas, focusing on stretching rather than niching. Managing municipal infrastructure for fossil free traveling; arranging education for understanding oneself and theBigPicture; and conducting public conversations to provide structure and leadership to any important issue. All of this, preferably, while singing.

Originating from a marginalized, mountain village which managed to rise from resignation thanks to theatre and a social relations, she learned by heart that culture and relations are keyword to happy people, to a happy planet and to happy profit. Therefor she decided to become…a civil engineer. So powerful was the norm. So strong was the fear. So weak was her mind. Fortunately. How could you possibly achieve anything, not confronting the frames that need to be changed!
