Caught by Umeå

Culture Trade

Culture Trade is a spin-off from Umeå University’s project Culture on Campus, and aims to deepen our exchange with other universities and cities, and support culture and a creative, social environment.

Concretely, Culture Trade is a cultural exchange between, on one hand, Umeå University and Umeå, and, on the other hand, university cities, mostly in Europe. Artists from the Umeå Region will be featured at a hosting university/city in  Europe, who in their turn will commit to visit Umeå with at least one artist in 2014.

So far, three Culture Trades have been made: Würzburg, Tyskland (2009), Winnipeg, Kanada (2010) and Riga, Lettland (2012).

Autumn 2013 the tour Caught by Umeå will visit eight European cities.

Partners: Visitsweden, Humlan, Umeå teaterförening, Norrlandsoperan, Kulturföreningen Pilgatan, Seriekrock and others.
