At its heart are unwavering values that uphold equality, equity and a true West of Scotland do-it-together spirit.

With breathtakingly high output, this artist collective has evolved into a unique social force that has already written itself into the history books as some of the foremost storytellers and influencers of our time. This makes them true ambassadors for Umeå and the cultural and creative industries."
