Music, comedy, literature, theatre, dance and more. We organise free culture events for students and staff - almost every week and always at lunchtime. This year we celebrate 15 years as a university "institution of culture". We have seen imitators in other parts of Sweden, but it is here at Umeå University where you will find the original!
Culture on Campus is a project which aims to inspire through cultural events on our campus. In fact, it was the first known project of its kind at higher education institutions in Sweden, which makes it quite special. We typically arrange and produce at least one event per week - always during lunchtime, somewhere on campus. We present many musical acts, but also literature, theatre, circus, film, photography, dance and art.
We offer a mix of local and national acts, as well as international ones. Culture on Campus is made possible through collaborative efforts, as we work together with many cultural groups, organisations and associations in Umeå, as well as other parts of Sweden.
Since our start in 2003, the concept of Culture on Campus had been to help contribute to a more lively campus setting. We hope that our concerts, theatrical performances, author visits and much more, can lead to a creative and interesting atmosphere. Last year, we presented 45 acts that were seen by approximately 25,000 spectators.
