Based upon the initiative of Christel Durand, a passionate of contemporary scandinavian music, the adventure of FIKA(S) started in March 2015. The mission of the Immersive Festival of Scandinavian Kultur and Art – FIKA(S) is to provide exposure to the Scandinavian way of life by sharing music, cinema, gastronomy as well as other distinctive cultural traits from Scandinavia.
The word FIKA(S) is the French acronym for Immersive Festival of Scandinavian Kultur and Art and is inspired by the Swedish word fika, which designates the traditional coffee break in Sweden. It is a moment to pause, have a drink and meet with others in an informal context.
