Arctic Arts Summit 2019 in Rovaniemi continues the series of Arctic Arts Summits started in Harstad, Norway in 2017. The main objective of the summit is to strengthen the arts and culture in the north and underline the role of circumpolar cooperation. The event will gather artists and representatives of art and cultural policy from the Arctic region and other countries that show interest towards the Arctic matters.

The theme of the 3-day summit is “The Arctic as a Laboratory for sustainable art and cultural policy”. On the third day of the conference The Nordic Culture Fund will together with Norwegian Crafts and Lapland University set up a program about Materiality and Art in the arctic where you will be able to hear both presentations of Handmade projects as well as take part of panel discussions.

All organizations and individuals operating in the field of arts, culture, and cultural politics that have a special interest in local initiatives, region development, arts management, and the development of art networks worldwide are welcome to register for the summit. 

The complete programme will be published soon.
