The Network

The initial ideas behind NOBA were first formed during Satellit – a Nordic dance festival for young audiences in Gothenburg, Sweden in 2011. The idea of forming a network for dance for young audiences came out of a mutual need to meet each other more frequently and to feel that we are all working towards common or at least similar goals.

After Satellit 2011, a steering group with representatives from all five Nordic countries was formed. Since then the group has worked with planning the over-all structure and ways to finance the network in a longer perspective. In order to gain more input from the dance community, a smaller meeting was hosted in Aarhus, Denmark during fall 2011.

From 2013-2015 NOBA will host five network meetings in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland, Finland and Estonia. NOBA has obtained funding from Nordic Culture Point for 2013-2015 and from Swedish Arts Council and Region Västra Götaland for 2013.

The steering group function as the board for NOBA, drawing out the direction for the coming years and also act as hosts for the coming network meetings in each respective country. The members of the steering group are all working with dance for young audiences and consist of:
