The Oslo International Flamenco Festival (OIFF) was formed in September 2015 and had its first edition in August 2017.
The festival is arrange by 'Norges flamencoforbund'. We are a voluntary organization that promotes flamenco in Norway. Through cultural, artistic, experimental, intellectual and sustainable projects we promote dance and music in order to develop people's learning and movement sense, strengthen their joy of life, self-image and curiosity for their surroundings.
We use Flamenco's toolbox to work on topics such as belonging, equality and rights, the environment, cultural heritage, as well as meeting different cultures, languages and generations.
The Board of Directors was formed by students and teachers of Flamenco living in Norway and Scandinavia with support from Spanish professional artists, organizations, managers and artists from other countries.
