We thank the City of Hamburg for their financial support and are excited to welcome international guests from Copenhagen and Malmö. View last years trailer here.

Setting cultural impulses for the future.

For many years the Metropolitan Region of Hamburg and Greater Copenhagen have been actively pursuing closer collaboration. The Fehmarnbelt fixed link and the accelerated transport routes will allow two of the most attractive regions of Europe to move closer together. Move the North makes culture an important alley on this path. Through a wide range of cross-border activities, Move the North creates cultural bridges and connects the people of the regions across the Baltic Sea. As a cross-border-festival and network platform for cultural exchange and collaboration, Move the North is present all throughout the year within the Metropolitan Region of Hamburg, Greater Copenhagen, STRING and the Fehmarnbelt Region, bringing together artists from all disciplines and regions.
