Norteas is a Nordplus network of Nordic and Baltic Performing Arts institutions in higher education. We focus on sharing about our everyday life. Norteas encourages students and teachers to seek innovation and new approaches to the already established practices, through the exchange of knowledge, experience and visions on contemporary performing arts and education.

Each member school is represented in Norteas by an academic leader and an international coordinator. Norteas chooses a chair and a network coordinator every second year at the annual network meeting. Additionally, three coordinators are selected for a working group that supports the network coordinator in administration such as applying for funding, distribution of grants, planning joint activities etc. The annual meeting takes place in February each year and consists of a joint network meeting, a coordinators' meeting and a meeting for academic leaders. This is where the network makes its decisions on projects and priorities. The meeting is an important platform for discussing future projects as well as an opportunity for staff development.
