What to expect?

Dive into the unexpected at Linking the (un)known, an immersive art experience designed to transport you through a world of sensory wonders and creative expression. Here you will find an outline of the program.

At the festivities, you get to participate in highlighting and strengthening positive attitudes among people from different backgrounds, languages, and cultures. Our program creators have designed an intercultural program focused on understanding and dialogue between people.

The evening starts at 6 p.m. with an introduction to prepare you for the program. After that, a two-hour interactive journey through installations and spaces that react to your movements and sounds begins.

Linking the (un)known is a whirlwind of experimental experiences in various environments, lined with spontaneous performances, theater, and live music. At the end of the evening, we all gather at the main stage for a finale and to present the Swedish Cultural Foundation’s prizewinners.
