NORDAFØRR 26 - 28 June 2023
Crosspollinating, international platform for music, visual arts, performances and literature.
NORDAFØRR is an annual, three day, platform, taking place during Festspillene i Nord-Norge. A platform where Northern Norwegian artists meet and engage with industry professionals from abroad. The three day program consists of performances, concerts, visual art, films and literature, the goal being a creation of sustainable networks that promote and strengthen the artistic practices of the region. We believe the stories and expressions from the Arctic have relevance and potential to go further and beyond the circumpolar North, and thus we will invite 20-30 festival programmers and booking agents from the world’s leading arts festivals to join us for those exciting and eye opening days.
Our goal for NORDAFØRR is to create a true creative platform where artists can expand their networks, get inspired and get introduced to the international festival stage. By combining different genres and arts expressions from literature to music, performances and visual arts, NORDAFØRR facilitates mutual exchange for the artists that are part of the program. The program consists of curated pitching sessions, talks about relevant topics, in and out of nature, and opportunities to make new friendships and to strengthen old ones.
