How do you start your creative process?

Fishing, catch and agroculture has been the most important way of living in the northern part of Norway. Regulations, quotas and fisheries policy meant that the fishermen with small boats did not get quotas.  Thus they lost the right to make a living from fishing, and lost part of their culture. Where quota regulations hit hard for the Sea Sami fishermen and the coastal people in the north, who had not accumulated enough catch to get a quota. It has been described as one of the strongest attacks on Sami culture.
