In March 2022, after receiving many good applications, Oslo World put together a new group of committed, young adults, to lead the festival's work for young people. Oslo World is very happy with the selected group - they are the cultural workers of the future and have helped to shape Oslo World in several ways.
This year's crew consists of Farhad Soufi (19), Lydia Tefera (19), Mubarak Muse (22) og Nora Abbas (18). They have already arranged a seminar program at Kulturfest Tøyen and Nes Secondary School and contributed to Oslo World's Pride concert, as well as OurNeighborhood. For Oslo World, they have booked an exciting seminar program and not least a concert with T-Section, for audiences both over and under 18. They have contributed to Oslo World's booking and have left their mark on the festival. In the future, they will meet gatekeepers from the cultural sector, take courses in photography with festival photographer Lars Opstad and arrange a seminar tour at schools in several Norwegian cities.
