ÖLAND ROOTS

Been part of Swedens coziest festival since 2010. Responsible as a curator for all art exhibited on the festival. Also in charge of the design and construction of all our own fixtures and pieces.

 

In the spring of 2004 we were a group of youths from Öland who were upset that nothing ever happened for young people on Öland that had to do with music or culture. As a reaction to this we created Öland Roots! Öland Roots is a youth initiative, and to this day the work around the festival, both planning and implementation, is done by young adults on the board together with their many friends around the country. Öland Roots is a members club with a non-profit working board of fifteen people. The board’s mission consists of arranging a reggae festival on Öland, and other culture arrangements all around Sweden with focus on Kalmar County.
