Crowdfunding campaign

Dear swing dancers all over the world –

 

Herräng Dance Camp has been one of the driving forces behind the revival of lindy hop and other dances of the jazz age for almost 40 years. This crowdfunding campaign was originally created in the summer of 2020 to prevent the camp from immediate bankruptcy when it became clear that the event would have to be cancelled due to the unwavering coronavirus situation. A good amount of money was collected at the time, and in combination with a grant from the Swedish government, Herräng Dance Camp survived the first wave of financial struggles. 

 

One year later, the coronavirus still lingers but the event has not stopped attempting to stabilise the financial situation. A handful of initiatives have been launched, among those being the Herräng Monthly and the upcoming Herräng Summer Weekend with all of the efforts relying solely on volunteer work. A few months ago, we re-opened our crowdfunding campaign again in conjunction with a new grant from the Swedish government and are now heading towards the goal of consolidating the financial platform to organise the festival’s physical comeback in the summer of 2022. 

 

Our crowdfunding is now open for general donations as well as donations linked to the Herräng Summer Weekend. For the latter, please visit our Facebook page for more information about the event, and tune in on the weekend of 31 July – 1 August. If you are interested in donating, please click the ‘donate now!’ button below. 

 

Since its inception, Herräng Dance Camp has always tried to stay close to the roots of the different dance forms and has often been the stomping grounds and natural hangout spot for many of the true originators of swing dancing. It has become a focal point for the interchange of jazz history, skills and ideas, providing a bridge between the past and the present among many other things. Our aim is to continue on this path, and we have no intention of surrendering to an evil virus. If you have enjoyed attending the event, or are planning to visit next year, if its values and activities resonate with you, and if you are able to do so, please consider to financially support us one way or the other.

 

Thank you very much in advance for your consideration and best regards,
