Platform GÁTT is a Nordic Council of Ministers’ project led by Reykjavík Arts Festival 2019-2022. The Icelandic word 'gátt' derives from old Norse and means doorway. The main aim of the project is to ‘open up doors’ for young artists into the festival arena in the Nordic region.
Five high profile multi-disciplinary arts festivals and establishments in the Nordic countries come together in Platform GÁTT to highlight and support young emerging professional artists from the region through a series of events. The participating institutions and festivals are: Reykjavik Arts Festival, Bergen International Festival, Nuuk Nordic Culture Festival, Helsinki Festival and The Nordic House in the Faroe Islands.
