Kehä-Festival goes international

In 2024 and 2025, Kehä-Festival will be organised as a part of the One-to-One Art project, which has been awarded Creative Europe funding for the period 1.11.2023 – 30.4.2026. The City of Oulu will also support the project. ILME’s partners in the project are the theatre group Gato Escaldado from Lisbon, Portugal, and the residency operator House collective from Klanjec, Croatia. In each country, different ways of bringing bilingual art to the public will be developed during the project.

The 2024 Kehä-Festival will be held in Oulu 30.10. – 2.11.2024.
