The period 2013-2014 focused on music co-operation between SA and Norway primarily through supporting the professional development of musicians. The exchange programme has facilitated UCT students to collaborate at the Oslo Jazz Music Festival, bands such as The Muffinz performing and collaborating with Norwegian artists, festivals like the National Youth Jazz Festival in Grahamstown, and the Norwegian-based Edge of Wrong festival of experimental music.
From 2015, the exchange programme has shifted focus and is more directly linked to the main Concerts SA priority of building the live music sector in SA. To this end, the emphasis of the exchange programme with Norway is on further development of professionals within the live music sector (promoters, venue owners, technicians, administrators, etc.).
