Flow Camp is a nordic flow gathering that brings artists and people together from around the world to unite the culture of fire dancing, flow- and performance arts. Our goal is to organize a gathering where participants can creatively explore and share their art form in a safe and inspiring inviroment.
This year we are changing location since we outgrew the last one. So this time we will be properly representing the roots of our Norwegian forest flow community on a beautiful farm in Finnskogen, Norway.
Date: 5.Sep-8.Sep 2019
Where: Finnskogen, Norway
Last year we outgrew the beach Flow Camp originated from. So this year we moved to a new and more forresty location we can continue building for years to come. This location represents Norway in a much more traditional way, and if we are lucky, then we might be visited by some of the trolls and gnomes residing in the mystical Norwegian forest! The venue is on a beautiful farm in Finnskogen and only participants buying a ticket will recieve info on how to easiest travel to the destination.
No one under 18 years of age is allowed at Flow Camp. While we want to include as many members of the flow and fire arts community as possible, minors present significant safety and liability concerns. This policy is intended to protect the health and well-being of our community’s future flow artists.
