So, here we are: May is well underway, and we, at the UNM Sweden board, have been working steadily to organize this year’s festival. Since November, the board has been meeting at least once a month to ensure the success of this festival. And we’ve been quite busy indeed: right after we distributed responsibilities across the board at our first meeting, we were able to complete many to-do items on our checklist. We’ve since then secured grants for the smooth running of the festival, curated concert events, taken care of logistical needs, secured partners and venues, and launched a social media campaign.
However, this is only the beginning. We’re still working on organizing additional activities to provide and nurture an environment where our attendees will have the opportunity to get to know each other and exchange as a community, going beyond the artistic showcase that the festival traditionally provides. Soon, we will update you with our finalized festival schedule, our itinerary, including all our event and housing venues. And that’s not all: keep an eye out for our regular online presence, because we’ll be growing the discussion around UNM 2019, and we want you to be at the center of it. We’d like you to exchange with us around subjects that matter to us, so that we can even better shape the festival for everyone to be able to make the most of it.
Until we meet in Piteå, let us know how we can help you: tell us what you would like for this festival!
