Culture and arts are not privileges of few, but rights of all

Reykjavik Arts Festival (Listahátíð í Reykjavík) approached Norda with the goal of creating a website that was well-designed, informative, and most importantly, accessible. Therefore, the main performance indicator of the site was accessibility, both in terms of information and events.



The website has two main focuses; to deliver clear messages to people before and during the festival. This includes providing good information flow on locations and times of events, how to obtain tickets, accessibility information and other specific information.

The other focus is to provide information between years, to inform people on the nature of the festival, educate and attract the attention of potential guests. The website also keeps records of past festivals and other related content that might spark the interest of guests.

Colorful, light and fun

The main challenge for the website was accessibility, as it was considered to be a success of the project that the website would be accessible to all and it would be easy to find what is being searched for. This was clearly expressed in the analysis of Reykjavik Arts Festival, that "Culture and Arts are not Privileges of Few, but Rights of All" which was the guiding light in the creation of the website. The look of the festival was designed by Brandenburg and is colorful, light and fun, just like the festival itself.

The thorough and well-done requirement analysis within Reykjavik Arts Festival laid the foundation for the website that was intended to meet all major festival audiences. This work resulted in a fun and accessible solution.

The staff we have worked with at Norda are all professional, informative, highly knowledgeable and always ready to look for new and creative ways to solve problems.
